Sensors are inherently analog in nature, and they get digitized for processing by using an Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) block. At the recent IP SoC event I had the chance to see the presentation by Ken Potts, COO of Alphacore on their semiconductor IP for ADCs. I learned that Alphacore started out in 2012, now offering both standard… Read More

Technology often goes in cycles. Thirty years ago the dominant mode of computing was a shared computing resource with comparatively dumb terminals. Think of a Vax accessed by terminals. Then workstations and the PC came along and the dominant mode became a computer on everyone’s desk. Then the smartphone came along and … Read More
Will you go to Grenoble next week to attend to IP-SoC? I will do it and will certainly listen to these Keynote Talks:
- “Platform IP: the next wave for SOCs from IoT to Datacenter” by Tony King-Smith, Executive Vice President, Marketing , Imagination Technologies
- “From Server-class to IoT SoCs: Enabling System
In fact, as of today, nobody can refer to an official statement made by any STM executive about name of the foundry able to process FD-SOI wafers in 28nm. We just know that the agreement is about to (or has been) signed… But we may speculate, and try to use our rational thinking. For example, the Semiwiki readers had the opportunity to… Read More
… were given to an ever shrinking audience. This is IP-SoC paradox: audience has enjoyed very good presentations made by TSMC (for the first time at IP-SoC, as far as I remember), SMIC, D&R, Gartner or ST-Microelectronic, to name just a few. The event is well organized, on the morning you can listen to keynotes in the largest … Read More
