I have been tracking EUV system production… Read More
Dynamic event-based simulation of RTL models has traditionally been the workhorse verification methodology. A team of verification engineers interprets the architectural specification to write testbenches for various elements of the design hierarchy. Test environments at lower levels are typically exercised then … Read More
Intel recently released an exceptional video providing an insightful chronology of MOS transistor technology. Evolution of Transistor Innovation is a five-minute audiovisual adventure, spanning 50 years of Moore’s Law. Some of the highlights are summarized below, with a few screen shot captures – the full video is definitely… Read More
Exciting times for the semiconductor industry! Last week Intel announced a billion dollar fund to build a foundry ecosystem and today Intel announced they are acquiring foundry Tower Semiconductor for $5.6 billion dollars, WOW! Some people doubted Intel’s commitment to the foundry market this time. I think we can now put that… Read More
At the recent Intel Architecture Day presentations, a breadth of roadmap plans were provided – an earlier article focused on the x86 client and data center cores and products. This article focuses on the GPU and IPU announcements.
