Maybe not the world, but schedules got eaten

Maybe not the world, but schedules got eaten
by Don Dingee on 01-17-2016 at 4:00 pm

It has been almost five years since Marc Andreessen wrote the words, “Software is eating the world.” The premise of his essay in the Wall Street Journal in 2011 was pretty simple: the technology world has seen its intrinsic value shift from hardware to software. New all-software names have appeared on the list of high flying companies,… Read More


Should there be a 5-second IoT chip rule?

Should there be a 5-second IoT chip rule?
by Don Dingee on 01-12-2016 at 12:00 pm

Kids have a tendency to put things in their mouths. Any parent can relate to the statement, “Put that down! You don’t know where it’s been!” After the first child, concern usually relaxes quite a bit. People joke about a 5-second rule on the premise if an object was just dropped on the floor, it may not be contaminated yet.… Read More

Semiconductor IP Validation Gets Faster

Semiconductor IP Validation Gets Faster
by Daniel Payne on 04-03-2014 at 11:32 am

Semiconductor IP continues to grow in use for SoC design, and many chips can now use hundreds of IP blocks from multiple vendors. Validating the quality of the IP blocks is an important step in the design process, and you could perform manual validation and inspection of each new IP block at the expense of time and engineering effort.… Read More


Semiconductor Strategy – From Productivity to Profitability

Semiconductor Strategy – From Productivity to Profitability
by Pawan Fangaria on 03-08-2014 at 8:30 am

The semiconductor industry seems to be the most challenged in terms of cost of error; a delay of 3 months in product development cycle can reduce revenue by about 27% and that of 6 months can reduce it by almost half; competition is rife, pushing the products to next generation (with more functionality, low power, high performance,… Read More


12m FPGA prototyping sans partitioning

12m FPGA prototyping sans partitioning
by Don Dingee on 10-16-2012 at 9:30 pm

FPGA-based prototyping brings SoC designers the possibility of a high-fidelity model running at near real-world speeds – at least until the RTL design gets too big, when partitioning creeps into the process and starts affecting the hoped-for results.

The average ASIC or ASSP today is on the order of 8 to 10M gates, and that includes… Read More

I attended much of the Jasper users’ group a week ago. There were several interesting presentations that I can’t just blog about because companies are shy, and some that would only be of interest if you were a user of Jasper’s products on a daily basis.

But for me the most interesting presentations were several… Read More
