The “Era of the Photon” is here!

The “Era of the Photon” is here!
by Tom Dillinger on 01-02-2016 at 12:00 pm

The 50 year anniversary of the publication of Moore’s Law was recently celebrated, highlighting the tremendous advances in the Microelectronics Eraof the period in human history known as the Information Age. However, the technical and economic challenges currently faced by the microelectronics industry are bringing into… Read More


Lighting Up The Cloud

Lighting Up The Cloud
by Bernard Murphy on 12-30-2015 at 7:00 am

In our rush to imagine a world populated with IoT devices, tech advances at the top end of this ecosystem (the cloud) don’t seem to get much airtime. But this isn’t because they are limited to modest refinements. As one example, there is active technology development in connectivity around fiber-based communications within the… Read More


Why silicon photonics and 2.5D design go together

Why silicon photonics and 2.5D design go together
by Beth Martin on 06-10-2015 at 4:30 pm

Silicon photonics is one of the upstart “More than Moore” technologies designed to enable the next generation of high-performance devices. Photonic design is the art of moving and transforming signals in the form of photons, allowing the message to literally travel at the speed of light, and bringing the promise of significant… Read More


The Transistor is the Foundation of TCAD to Signoff

The Transistor is the Foundation of TCAD to Signoff
by Paul McLellan on 06-04-2015 at 7:00 am

At the most basic level, semiconductor design is all about transistors. Any report on a large microprocessor or mobile application processor is in awe about how many transistors it contains. Moore’s Law is all about the most economic way to manufacture transistors. Each process generation for the last decade and looking ahead… Read More


How to design silicon photonics–take this class!

How to design silicon photonics–take this class!
by Beth Martin on 05-25-2015 at 9:30 pm

Silicon Photonics is the hottest prospect for blazing fast communication between chips in servers, data centers, and supercomputers.

By using light instead of electrical signals, it promise to usher in a new standard of high performance, low power devices while extending the use of more mature process nodes, helping to reduce… Read More


Opto-Electronics to Take Care of Data Explosion

Opto-Electronics to Take Care of Data Explosion
by Pawan Fangaria on 01-28-2015 at 11:30 am

As we come nearer to an intelligent IoT world, one of the major concerns we talk every day is about data explosion, its storage, and access and so on. In the beginning of the year, I had blogged about some facts that indicated successful emergence of IoT in very near future. My faith gets further strengthened when I envision the semiconductor… Read More
