Meetup panel min 1

At Veriest we host VERIFICATION MEETUPS periodically to share verification wisdom. In our virtual meetings we’ve had hundreds of attendants from the US, Europe, Israel, India, and China. Most recently we were able to host a live event in Israel – I want to share feedback from that meeting.

We started with two presentations:… Read More

Innovation

I’m kicking off a blog series which should appeal to many of us in functional verification. Paul Cunningham (GM of the Verification Group at Cadence), Jim Hogan (angel investor and board member extraordinaire) and I (sometime blogger) like to noodle from time to time on papers and other verification articles which inspire us.… Read More


Optimizing high performance packages calls for multidisciplinary 3D modeling

Optimizing high performance packages calls for multidisciplinary 3D modeling
by Tom Simon on 10-16-2019 at 10:00 am

For all the time we spend thinking and talking about silicon design, it’s easy to forget just how important package design is. Semiconductor packages have evolved over the years from very basic containers for ICs into very specialized and highly engineered elements of finished electronic systems. They play an important role … Read More


China Winning the Future of the semiconductor industry?

China Winning the Future of the semiconductor industry?
by Bart van Hezewijk on 09-01-2019 at 11:00 am

In this second article about China’s role in the global semiconductor industry I analyse the impact of the Chinese government’s Big Fund and compare Chinese investments in semiconductor R&D with those in other countries. In my previous article, I looked at the possible effects of a US-China decoupling in theRead More

When Gary Shapiro introduced Brian Krzanich for Intel’s keynote at #CES2016, he just possibly may have been the last person to say “Moore’s Law” outside of a museum ever again. Krzanich was about to take Intel into new territory, where “Copy Exactly” and tick-tock also don’t matter.… Read More


Semiconductor Mergers – Innovation or Consolidation?

Semiconductor Mergers – Innovation or Consolidation?
by Pawan Fangaria on 08-02-2015 at 8:00 pm

About 3 years ago, I had written an article about consolidation in the semiconductor landscape where I had articulated 4 main reasons of consolidation – Macroeconomics, Business Leadership, Technology Leadership, and IP leadership. Back then, based on the state of affairs in the semiconductor industry, I had also mentioned… Read More
