Optimizing Edge Based AI ML

AI/ML functions are moving to the edge to save power and reduce latency. This enables local processing without the overhead of transmitting large volumes of data over power hungry and slow communication links to servers in the cloud. Of course, the cloud offers high performance and capacity for processing the workloads. Yet, … Read More

New ARC VPX DSP IP provides parallel processing punch

New ARC VPX DSP IP provides parallel processing punch
by Tom Simon on 10-29-2019 at 6:00 am

The transition to the digital age from a mostly analog world really began with the invention of the A-to-D and D-to-A converters. However scalar processors can easily be overwhelmed by the copious data produced by something as simple as an audio stream. To solve this problem and to really jumpstart the digital age, the development… Read More


SOC security is not a job for general purpose CPUs

SOC security is not a job for general purpose CPUs
by Tom Simon on 01-14-2019 at 7:00 am

Life is full of convenience-security tradeoffs. Sometimes these are explicit, where you get to make an active choice about how secure or insecure you want things to be. Other times we are unaware of the choices we are making, and how risky they are for the convenience provided. If you leave your bike unlocked, you can expect it to be… Read More

Eta Compute Receives Two Awards from ARM at TechCon
by Tom Simon on 11-19-2018 at 7:00 am

Many startups set out with the goal of accomplishing a technical feat that was previously considered impossible. Quite frankly most do not succeed. Yet, occasionally a company comes along that succeeds with a game changing breakthrough. ETA Compute has done just this. Yet, even more impressively, this 3-year-old company has… Read More


Open source RISC-V ISA brings a new wrinkle to the processor market

Open source RISC-V ISA brings a new wrinkle to the processor market
by Tom Simon on 10-25-2017 at 12:00 pm

By now most people are quite comfortable with the idea of using an open source operating system for many computing tasks. It speaks volumes that Unix, and Linux in particular, is used in the vast majority of engineering, financial, data base, machine learning, data center, telecommunications and many other applications. It was… Read More


Intel: Their Week in the Spotlight

Intel: Their Week in the Spotlight
by Paul McLellan on 08-13-2015 at 3:00 pm

Next week is the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) here in San Francisco at the Moscone Center. I’ll be there at least some of the time. But it is also the time that people who haven’t a clue about semiconductors and the market that it serves get to lap up press releases and try and sound intelligent.

For example:
Intel is aboutRead More
