Screen Shot 2020 06 12 at 8.46.22 AM

A little over a month ago, I wrote about the substantial support that Silicon Catalyst and Arm were providing for chip startups. There have been many incubators for technology companies over the years. These organizations typically provide office space, some basic infrastructure, advisory help and sometimes access to seed … Read More


Mentor-Tanner Illuminate MEMS Sensing, Fusion

Mentor-Tanner Illuminate MEMS Sensing, Fusion
by Bernard Murphy on 08-14-2019 at 6:00 am

I enjoy learning and writing about new technologies closely connected to our personal and working lives (the kind you could explain to your Mom or a neighbor). So naturally I’m interested in AI, communication and security as applied to the home automation, transportation, virtual, augmented and mixed reality, industry and so… Read More


Edge Devices Rely on Intelligent MEMS Based Sensors

Edge Devices Rely on Intelligent MEMS Based Sensors
by Tom Simon on 03-29-2018 at 12:00 pm

MEMS sensors play a huge role in intelligent systems these days. Mobile and IoT devices would essentially be blind if not for the rich variety of MEMS sensors integrated into them. The MEMS sensor market is growing rapidly, topping $10B in 2016 and slated to exceed $20B by 2020. MEMS is also growing in the RF market, where they are providing… Read More


Webinar: Fastest Lowest-Cost Route to Developing ARM based Mixed Signal SoCs

Webinar: Fastest Lowest-Cost Route to Developing ARM based Mixed Signal SoCs
by Daniel Nenni on 03-28-2018 at 7:00 am

When it comes to building edge devices for the internet-of-things (IoT), you don’t want to have to break the bank to prototype an idea before diving into the deep water. At the same time, if your idea is to shrink an edge device down to it’s smallest dimensions, lowest power and lowest cost, you really want to be able to prototype your… Read More


Fusing CMOS IC and MEMS Design for IoT Edge Devices

Fusing CMOS IC and MEMS Design for IoT Edge Devices
by Mitch Heins on 09-11-2017 at 12:00 pm


In my 34 years in IC and EDA, it never ceases to amaze me as to how ingenious designers can be with what is given them. Mentor, a Siemens business, has released a wonderful white paper that is proof of this yet again. The white paper steps through how one of their customers, MEMSIC, used the Tanner tool suite to develop a combination CMOS… Read More


Bosch to Build $1.1 Billion Fab for Automotive and IoT!

Bosch to Build $1.1 Billion Fab for Automotive and IoT!
by Daniel Nenni on 07-02-2017 at 7:00 am

There has been quite a bit of coverage on this already but Bosch building a fab in Dresden is a big deal so let me share my experience, observation, and opinion as us bloggers do. The $1.1B question of course is: Why didn’t Bosch invest in GlobalFoundries FD-SOI fabs in Dresden instead? Automotive and IoT is perfect for FD-SOI,… Read More


Heads Up! Photonics West is Just Around the Corner

Heads Up! Photonics West is Just Around the Corner
by Mitch Heins on 12-04-2016 at 4:00 pm

As I write about integrated photonics I continue to hear from long-time experts in the field who lament that integrated photonics has been around for decades and other than telecom/datacom, it seems to never be a mainstream technology. It’s hard to argue that this time around it will be different as those people have lived through… Read More
