Over the last few years, there has been an increase in news about quantum computing. Much of this news coverage has been around computing supremacy, potential threats to information security and quantum cryptography. While the field of quantum computing is still in its early stages, there are several companies who have already… Read More
Quantum computing is the next big thing for the computing world. The semiconductor industry has been talking about it for years. It’s shiny, mysterious, and capable of some incredible things. Instead of using classical bits to represent information (which can be either a 0 or a 1), quantum computers use quantum bits or qubits… Read More

SRAM is the workhorse for on-chip memories, valued for its performance and easy integration with standard processes. The needs of wearable, IoT and AI SOCs have put a lot of pressure on the requirements for all on-chip memories. This is perhaps most evident in the area of power. AI chips that rely heavily on SRAM register files are… Read More
What brought you to semiconductors?
As a kid I was interested in electronics and early personal computers. I went on to graduate from Manchester University in 1986, the birthplace of the modern computer, studying Computer Engineering where for my final year project I designed a gate array using Ferranti Electronics technology… Read More
After spending a significant amount of my career in the IP library business it was an easy transition to Solido Design. I spent 10+ years traveling the world with CEO Amit Gupta working with the foundries and their top customers. In fact, the top 40 semiconductor companies use Solido. IP companies are also big Solido users including… Read More
The electronics industry strives to continuously introduce new product innovation and differentiation. The ASIC market arose from the motivation to offer unique (cost-reduced) integration that was not realizable with commodity MSI/LSI parts. The SoC market evolved to provide even greater differentiation, integrating… Read More
If you are designing an SOC for an IoT application and looking to minimize power consumption, there are a lot of choices. However, more often than not, looking at reducing SRAM power is a good place to start. SRAMs can consume up to 70% of an IC’s power. SureCore, a leading memory IP supplier, offers highly optimized SRAM instances … Read More
