Dan is joined by Tony Chan Carusone, Chief Technology Officer of Alphawave Semi. Tony has been a professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto since 2001 and has served as a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society and on the Technical Program Committees of the world’s leading circuits conferences.
He co-authored the classic textbooks “Analog Integrated Circuit Design” and “Microelectronic Circuits” and he is a Fellow of the IEEE. Tony has also been a consultant to the semiconductor industry for over 20 years, working with both startups and some of the largest technology companies around the world.
Dan and Tony discuss the emerging movement toward a chiplet ecosystem. Tony describes some of the significant benefits of this approach, including ease of prototyping, power reduction and achieving density beyond the reticle limit. The flexibility offered by a chiplet ecosystem and the ability to more easily integrate optical interconnect are also discussed.
Tony describes Alphawave’s commitment to building a chiplet ecosystem, the technology and products that the company offers and an assessment of what the future holds. He offers a realistic view of how the chiplet ecosystem will mature that is based on past achievements in the industry.
