    Lattice's New Focus / Drop in Server Shipments / DinoPlusAI / Mythic's New Funding

    I fully agree that a drop in server unit shipments is counterintuitive. The question is about the new comers (Amazon, Google, Microsoft and the like) who now design their data center (and servers) and use it. Are these being counted by IDC? If not, it could explain the drop in servers shipments...

    U.S. Companies Dominate Worldwide IC Marketshare

    Dan, you are right, the SemiWiki traffic is a good indication about where chip design is made, and this is better than just HQ! But chip design doesn't mean chip sales (IDM or Fabless)... India is a good example: #2 with 12%. But how much in term of chip sales?

    ARM Suspends Business With Huawei Just As EE Removes Huawei Phones From 5G launch

    Just FYI, ARM can stop to supply IP to Huawei officialy, the (dead) JV that ARM has created with a Chinese consortium before to exit (or been kicked off?) will do. ARM CPU IP are available to Chinese customers through this JV...

    Interface IP Survey 2005-2016

    Interface IP (USB, PCIe, SATA, HDMI, MIPI, DDRn,…) Survey : Chapter I The need to exchange larger and larger amount of data from system to the external world, or internally into an application, has pushed for the standardization of interconnect protocol. This allows interconnecting different...

    Interface IP: VIP

    If the IP market is a niche market (see: IP paradox blog) with revenue of about $3 billion, or 1% of the overall semiconductor business, how could we qualify the Verification IP (VIP) market…is it a “super-niche” market? In fact, the verification of the IP integrated into a SoC is an essential...

    Interface IP: DDR

    The Double Data Rate DRAM standard (DDRn where n can be 2, 3 or 4) is now in use for more than 15 years. The memory controller interface is certainly the most widely used if we look at the long list of Interface: PCIe, HDMI, USB, SATA, MIPI, DisplayPort and more, as we can make the assumption...

    The IP paradox: such a low payback for such useful piece of design

    The IP market is a niche market, with revenue of about 1% of the overall semiconductor business, but it is highly strategic for the chip makers. IP helps the chip maker to drastically improve their TTM, when buying a commodity function they can concentrate on the part of the design which...
