Zentera Strikes Gold

Zentera Strikes Gold
by Paul McLellan on 06-02-2014 at 2:06 am

In my last blog about Zentera I talked about secure border computing standards and how there were two separate challenges. Firstly, to develop good security technology that is easy to deploy. The technology has to be solid before you need to worry about the second challenge.

The second challenge is to make the standard a standard.… Read More

There are two separate classes of problem when trying to create a de facto standard in an industry like the fabless/foundry ecosystem. This is what Zentera is doing with secure border computing, allowing fabless semiconductor companies, foundries, EDA and IP companies to be able to work together in ways that enable collaborations… Read More

As the red queen says in Alice Through the Looking Glass, “Here it takes all the running you can do to stay in the same place”. Development in an advanced process node seems like that. The process isn’t ready when you have to start design, so the PDKs change all the time. The EDA tools are not ready when you have to start… Read More

Very large datacenters have become economically attractive over the last decade. There are a several reasons for this. Virtualization and other software technologies have made it easier to make a datacenter look like a dedicated server, and at a much lower total cost of ownership of actually having your own dedicated server. … Read More

Next Generation Remote Access: Under the Hood

Next Generation Remote Access: Under the Hood
by Paul McLellan on 08-16-2013 at 2:56 pm

I wrote a few weeks ago about Zentera’s push to create a new standard for remote access that allows semiconductor companies and EDA companies to cooperate on resolving issues without requiring that the semiconductor company’s IP leaves the company network. At the 50,000 foot level, Zentera’s technology … Read More

When I was running engineering at Compass Design Automation, one of our customers was the National Security Agency (NSA, you’ve heard of them, they’ve kind of been in the news recently). They had a huge problem which was that when they ran into bugs they couldn’t send us any data to reproduce the bug, even a small… Read More
