Each year, TSMC conducts two events – the Technology symposium in the Spring and the Open Innovation Platform (OIP) ® Ecosystem Forum in the Fall. Yet, what is the OIP ecosystem? What does it encompass? And, how does the program differentiate TSMC from other foundries? At the recent OIP Forum in Santa Clara, Suk Lee, Senior Director,… Read More
The cloud is a highly popular term that a lot of people don’t fully understand. If you are one of those people please read on as I will share my experience, observations, and opinions. Even if you are a cloud aficionado you may want to catch up on what’s new with EDA cloud services so again read on.
When we first started SemiWiki 9 years … Read More
EDA has been flirting with the cloud unsuccessfully for many years now and it really comes down to a familiar question: Who can afford to spend billions of dollars on data center security? Which is similar to the question that started the fabless transformation: Who can afford to spend billions of dollars on semiconductor manufacturing… Read More
In case you missed it, Fractal is now officially part of the TSMC EDA Alliance. Fractal Crossfire is the leading IP and Library QA tool used by TSMC and many of TSMC’s customers so this is for the greater IP good, absolutely. Fractal has also released a new white paper “Setup Generation for Fractal Crossfire” that we can talk about but… Read More
If you are interested in what types of chips we will see in the coming years always ask an ASIC provider because they know. Companies of all sizes (small-medium-large) use ASIC companies to get their chips out in the least amount of time and at a minimum cost because that is what ASIC companies do.
IP is an important ingredient to the … Read More
