Consolidation in the semiconductor industry, a slowdown in innovation, soaring chip design costs, and the growing inability for semiconductor companies to fully monetize the software in their chips, are contributing to the Embedded Revolution.
At the low end of the IoT spectrum, simple, commoditized solutions often deliver poorly implemented user interfaces. This article examines various problems that result from a inadequately designed UI for IoT products.
TSMC, the world’s largest contract chip maker, sued Globalfoundries for patent infringement, in response to a legal challenge launched by its smaller American rival in August. TSMC, trying to protect its more than 50% foundry market share, is...
With 5G comes with huge cost and power implications, thus requiring a shift back from FPGA platforms to ASICs. What are the reasons for the move, and how can it be done cost-effectively without sacrificing all of the FPGA 's flexibility?
It’s not hard to see how real-life performance figures differ from what’s presented in datasheets. But what’s the reason? How do these performance changes happen and how can you properly interpret SSD performance numbers?
