    Retro analog dial-up modem question

    For the old telephone copper, upgrading the electronics probably won't help. The frequency on those wires is so slow that the DSP algorithms on them became effectively perfect years ago. When you say"dial a neighbor" are you meaning just a free choice of anyone in your neighborhood, not a...

    Xi Jinping admits China is 'relatively weak' on innovation and needs more talent to dominate the tech 'battlefield'

    You should read the reviews. You will find that despite clearly copying the look, everything else about it is different. An in many ways, better. It is much cheaper, has good range, is comfortable, has nice interior, good electronics and reasonably advanced driving assist. Performance is...

    Retro analog dial-up modem question

    T1 used high quality lines, not shared with others. There was often a high cost to getting it installed because they pulled a new line. ISDN was around for a while with 128k and even 256k, running on ordinary lines. My household got its first taste of "always on" internet with ISDN around...

    It’s official: High-NA EUV will get a successor

    Oh I'm not saying it does not pose difficulties. It will take a while. But LN2 chilling is already scaled, so the main problems are in the silicon and the modularity for maintenance. Networking will be interesting since glass gets brittle. I expect reliability to be quite high, as has been...

    It’s official: High-NA EUV will get a successor

    No. It will be an enormous effort that cannot be hidden, which is why they need to talk about it. Shareholders must be aware. Dotting the i's is where High NA hopes it is now. Like MOx resists thought they were 2 years ago... and they are still dotting them.

    Interesting Samsung 14nm vs. tsmc 4nm function comparison from Gorq in SFF2024

    It was a good MtM post. These new functional units like MoME, or another hot one Mixture of Depths, all use matmul on large matrix/tensors as the basic building block. I suspect Groq can figure that out as a scheduled flow too. Groq's main problem is the bet on SRAM. Taylor's group at UW...

    Graphene to Replace Silicon? Is it viable?

    A material does not have to be special in just one way. Plenty of ideas - and actual uses - have been found for the conductive form of graphene. That does not invalidate looking for uses for an ultra-high mobility semiconductor variant epitaxial on SiC. We can walk and chew gum.

    Graphene to Replace Silicon? Is it viable?

    Looks interesting. A long way to go for practical devices.

    Robotics, AI and the Economic destruction of the US and Medical

    The good thing is that the health system is the most lucrative target for innovation out there, bigger than cloud computing if it can be freed from its regulatory capture. And it will advance so much in other countries that the electorate (who, as you say, are aging) will start to pay attention...

    Darpa-Backed Startup Seeks $70 Million to Join AI Chip Goldrush

    Their 2021 paper: https://www.princeton.edu/~nverma/VermaLabSite/Publications/2021/JiaOzatayTangValaviPathakLeeVerma_ISSCC2021Proof.pdf Not many bits in 25mm2. 4x4 integrated into 8 bits which they claim is possible in digital for over 100TOPs / W as well. Is this competitive? Interesting.

    Robotics, AI and the Economic destruction of the US and Medical

    The waste in US health benchmarked against other private medicine in G7 is epic .. waste alone is nearly equal to total of Federal income taxes. But automation is not likely to fix regulatory capture and vertically integrated oligopolies. You need something more like Uber: legal shock troops...

    Why Lunar Lake changes (almost) everything

    It is a phantom advantage. Much better for foundry to hear the needs of more customers - and have more customer volume - and for the design side to have all choices available. "vertical integration" is really "three-legged race". And they have different capital structures, timelines...

    Why Lunar Lake changes (almost) everything

    Xeon is high perf, Lunar is low power. Allows Intel to focus the 3 process on one set of metrics. It looks like 20A/18A is where it all comes home and will need to be more versatile.

    Behind the plot to break Nvidia’s grip on AI by targeting software

    NVlink is used to bind your cluster together. In low level code for NV GPUs you can read and write memory anywhere in cluster global memory. Nvidia do discuss coherent memory access. This is load/store over NVlink, not RDMA unless the route has to tunnel through IB, which in the H100 is not...

    Here's where the last $6 billion in CHIPS Act semiconductor award money is going

    Jensen at Nvidia is really pumped about digital twins. The entire Blackwell presentation was repeatedly described as using digital twins, including the ODM factory which will assemble them. Of course, Nvidia cannot let go of its graphics roots. I am more a fan of TPU style than GPU style for...

    Here's where the last $6 billion in CHIPS Act semiconductor award money is going

    The R&D NOFOs are mostly a list asking for bids on things NIST want to use, measurement related. Except NIST has sprouted a new enthusiasm for digital twins.

    The Final Nail in Intel’s Coffin?

    The best thing is that the marauders are all turning towards a much bigger treasure - and threat - from the green one. Intel is a distraction.
