Intel is leaving the GPUs in the dust with is latest 72-processor chip the Xeon Phi with on-chip fabric, 3-D memory and silicon photonics connecting to any sized arrays--a true supercomputer on-a-chip.
Intel announced range of stand-alone bootable Xeon Phi processors with from 64-to-72 processors running at up to 1.5-GHz for low-power consumption, 16-Gbytes of 3-D memory, and high-performance computing orchestration for deep learning algorithms.
Coventor still sells its MEMS tools, but the bulk of its customers are now semiconductor manufacturers and equipment makers who use its SEMulator3D to model and verify nanoscale 3-D structures now including electrical analysis.
3-D packaging could outperform Moore's Law in the 21st century, according to Smoltek which has an ultra-dense process for integrating thinned CMOS die together into complete one-chip application solutions to Internet of Things (IoT) devices--even including the battery!
NXP + Freescale hopes to build a chip business to rival Intel, but with a diversity of offerings that evolve as the markets evolve. CEO Richard Clermmers says the new NXP will target all things smart, but in particular smart cities and smart education to make sure it has not just the right electronics parts to sell, but the right engineers to design them.
Magnetic graphene nixes the need for a bandgap, since using spintronics can handle both the logic functions and the encoding of 1s and 0s onto a single electron. Magnetic graphene may ensure it as the successor to silicon circa 2023. Bookmark and Share. Posted by R. Colin Johnson at 1:46 PM ...
IBM is leveraging the growing open-source community by making important donations to their projects, which began years ago with its contribution to Linux and today includes Cognitive Computing and Deep Learning algorithms.
Intel's Xeon E7 version 4 (E7v4) is its fastest processor yet, wth dual rings around up to 24 cores and double the performance on realtime mission critical applications such as realtime transaction analytics, enterprise resource planning, and deep learning.
With the PC market declining and data-center caliber processors sales climbing Intel is diversifying its Xeon processors with a new E3v5 model announced today at Computes Taipei for video stream suppliers--which will dominate 80 percent of Internet traffic by 2020.
The Internet of Things (IIoT) got a boost recently when NXP (there new owners of formerly Freescale) expanded on its plan for IOT devices. One will soup up the cable WiFi routers to more gracefully handle every wireless device in a household....read more by clicking on title.
A home gateway solution from NXP allows all the Internet of Things (IoT) devices in a home to be integrated with WiFi making it more valuable and economical to keep the cable as your internet service provider (ISP) and get regular TV to boot.
