The Server SoC at the heart of Data Center almost don’t care about power consumption, at the opposite of Application Processors for smartphone. If you design a server multi-core SoC, you target the highest performance, in fact a combination of high frequency and lowest possible latency, and try to pack as ...

Audits. The mere mention of the word keeps project managers up at night and sends most designers running. However, in the case of FPGA designs seeking DO-254 compliance, the product doesn’t ship until the audit is complete – there is no avoiding it, or skating around it. ...

Transportation sector is growing, and we can already see that a fleet of autonomous, shared vehicles – connected to the road infrastructure, to the Internet and to a broader network of public transit options – will create incredible value. The transport sector is trying its level best to improve ...

Whenever we push the bounds of reliability in any domain, we run into new potential sources of error. Perhaps not completely new, but rather concerns new to that domain. That’s the case for Single Event Upsets (SEUs) which are radiation-triggered bit-flips, ...

Did you know that Microsoft is testing a project (code-named Natick) to submerge Data Center underwater, using fibre optics to transfer data to land? That’s sounds weird, but the only reason to do so is power consumption. In fact existing data center built in the US already ...

There’s a $20B problem facing drivers in U.S. cities – in fact, it affects drivers in cities all over the world. It is the challenge of locating an available and legal parking space.

With the growth in streaming video and the promises of 50 billion IoT gadgets making our lives oh-so-much better, there is an alarming demand for online computational horsepower and bandwidth.

Why alarming? In 2014, data centers in the United States consumed approximately ...

It requires lateral thinking in bringing new innovation into conventional solutions to age-old hard problems. While the core logic design has evolved adding multiple functionalities onto a chip, now called SoC, the structural composition of DFT (Design for Testability) has remained more or less same based ...

A new term has entered the vernacular of electronic design engineering -- pathfinding. The complexity of the functionality to be integrated and the myriad of chip, package, and board technologies available make the implementation decision a daunting task. Pathfinding refers to the method by which the design space of technology options is reduced ...

Every now and then a new technology comes along which is so dramatic, far reaching and all encompassing that it transforms the way we live our lives and do business. In recent years, we’ve experienced three major technological innovations in our digital world -- which together have paved the way for a fourth. More about the fourth in a moment.

James Clerk Maxwell’s eponymous equations are the basis for simulating electromagnetic wave propagation. In school, EE majors tended to fall into two camps: (a) those that thoroughly enjoyed their fields and waves classes, who liked doing surface integrals, and who were adept at demonstrating the “right hand rule”, and (b) those that took the required courses but quickly focused ...

For those among you who have read my previous SemiWiki articles, you will no doubt see a theme: the security of our connected world is badly broken, and for the bad guys, violating our online lives - both business and personal - is as easy as taking candy from the proverbial baby.

The Semiconductor Wiki Project
Introduction
The SemiWiki Project, the premier semiconductor question and answer site, is a growing online community of 50,000+ professionals involved with the semiconductor design and manufacturing ecosystem. 

The SemiWiki mission statement: FOR THE GREATER GOOD OF THE SEMICONDUCTOR DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING ECOSYSTEM!

As a SemiWiki Member you may adopt a screen name to protect your identity but you must register with real names and the company you work for. Only semiconductor professionals qualify as SemiWiki Members and all Member information will be held in the strictest confidence.

Today everything and everyone is connected and crowd sourced. In fact, all social media, from blogs, to forums, and wikis have a profound impact on how people communicate, search for information, and make decisions. For vendors, social media is no longer an experiment or a moonlighting function. Social media is now an integral part of corporate communications.

SemiWiki has a strict NO SHILLS policy. EDA/IP/Foundry employees must properly identify themselves if they are going to answer questions, promote products or the company they work for. This level of security ensures the quality of the content.

While Google, Yahoo, Bing, and other search engines will continue to play an important role in social media, KNOWLEDGE SHARING sites like SemiWiki are the new search. The role of user generated content has changed the way information is exchanged. In contrast to the SALES experience offered by EDA/IP portals, vendor websites, and webinars, SemiWiki brings technology and technologists closer together than ever before, providing in-demand content and facilitating peer-to-peer communications using Web 2.0 technologies.

Forums and wikis will be co-moderated by SemiWiki Bloggers. SemiWiki Bloggers include industry professionals: Daniel NenniPaul McLellanDaniel PayneEric Esteve, and Ed McKernan.

Who Wants an iPad2? 

We still have some SemiWiki iPad2s to give away:
  1. Guest blog on SemiWiki and you may get an iPad2
  2. Every 1,000th person who registers on SemiWiki gets an iPad2. Just put iPad2 in the referrer section when registering.
Thank you again for your support!

5 things you should know about SemiWiki:
  1. SemiWiki is global. Your experience here will be from around the world with an incredible amount of information at your fingertips. Make sure you connect and interact, make sure you engage at all levels.
  2. Build relationships and network. You can truly connect here with people who you have not met. Make friends and create a support system for your professional life.
  3. Take the good and the bad. Distinguish between fact and opinion, objective and subjective. People will either like or dislike your posts and there is something to be learned from both.
  4. Don’t be evil. Top influencers will have one thing in common, they use their influence for the greater good.
  5. Be yourself. Impersonating others online is a crime so just be yourself. Share your knowledge, share your profession, share your passion. You don’t have to be an expert or industry icon to be a top influencer on SemiWiki.

The point of the blogs are to drive traffic and feed the site analytics, that is where the SemiWiki value proposition is. This is crowd sourcing, Bloggers share information and opinions, SemiWiki members will share experiences and agree or disagree, the collective knowledge of the crowd will win every time. That is social media, increasing the transparency of business, products, and people. Vendors that subscribe to SemiWiki or have professional connections to a SemiWiki blogger are identified by being placed above the line on the vendor tabs.
