eMemory RRAM Webinar Semiwiki

On-chip memory (embedded memory) makes computing applications run faster. In the early days of the semiconductor industry, the desire to utilize large amount of on-chip memory was limited by cost, manufacturing difficulties and technology mismatches between logic and memory circuit implementations. Since then, advancements… Read More


RISC-V SDKs, from IP Vendor or a Third Party?

RISC-V SDKs, from IP Vendor or a Third Party?

RISC V min

Like many of us, I’m a fan of open-source solutions. They provide common platforms for common product evolution, avoiding a lot of unnecessary wheel re-invention, over and over again. Linux, TensorFlow, Apache projects, etc., etc. More recently the theme moved into hardware with OpenCores and now the RISC-V ISA. All good stuff.… Read More

Things are going quite well in the Valley, ESPECIALLY if traffic is any indication. I still remember the BUST with the empty office buildings and light traffic, back in the early 2000’s…while I wish for traffic like that always, I certainly prefer the busy times, guess you cannot have it all. The more traffic, the more jobs; they invariably… Read More

Voice-based control is arguably becoming another killer app, or killer app-enabler in the very significant shifts we are seeing in automation. After a bumpy start in car feature control (for navigation, phone calls, etc) and early smartphone “intelligent” assistants, voice-based interfaces now seem to be maturing into a genuinely… Read More


CEVA Ups the Ante for Edge-Based AI

CEVA Ups the Ante for Edge-Based AI
by Bernard Murphy on 01-05-2018 at 6:00 am

AI is quickly becoming the new killer app and everyone is piling on board as fast as they can. But there are multiple challenges for any would-be AI entrepreneur:

  • Forget about conventional software development; neural nets require a completely different infrastructure and skill-sets
  • More and more of the interesting opportunity

Can one process handle IIoT safety and security?

Can one process handle IIoT safety and security?
by Don Dingee on 07-20-2016 at 4:00 pm

SemiWiki had another article recently making the case that in IoT applications, safety and security are intertwined, adding that both are important, but they are not the same thing. Mentor Graphics has weighed in with a new white paper trying to tie both issues to a methodology.

Industrial IoT – or IIoT as you’ll often see in shorthand… Read More


10 signs on the neural-net-based ADAS road

10 signs on the neural-net-based ADAS road
by Don Dingee on 06-24-2016 at 12:00 pm

Every day I read stuff about the coming of fully autonomous vehicles, and it’s not every day we get a technologist’s view of the hurdles faced in getting there. Chris Rowen, CTO of Cadence’s IP group, gave one of the best presentations I’ve seen on ADAS technology and convolutional neural networks (CNNs) at #53DAC, pointing… Read More


CEO Insight: Transformation of Vayavya Labs into System Design Automation

CEO Insight: Transformation of Vayavya Labs into System Design Automation
by Pawan Fangaria on 05-12-2016 at 7:00 am

With the advent of SoCs, design abstractions and verification has moved up at the system level. It’s imperative that EDA moves up the value chain to start design automation at system level. The System Design Automation will be the new face of EDA in coming years.… Read More


Neural Networks Poised to Make Big Changes in Our World

Neural Networks Poised to Make Big Changes in Our World
by Tom Simon on 04-11-2016 at 12:00 pm

Probably the most interesting thing about Neural Networks is how they can be used for complex recognition tasks that we as people can easily perform but we might have a lot of trouble explaining how. One very good example of a problem that Neural Networks can tackle is determining when people are making a fake smile. Intuitively we… Read More
