Embedded Product Development Make vs Buy - Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) face many questions before building any product. After they are convinced that there is a business potential in their new product, next comes the crucial stage of project execution. They aspire to build the product in-time, maybe before the competitors or better than the competing products, without compromising on their budget constraints. However, aspirations occasionally match with reality. Time-slips, prod...

Apple will NEVER use Intel Custom Foundry! - The media already has Apple and Intel in talks to make the A11 SoC in 2018 as a result of the recent Intel/ARM IP licensing deal. This is probably one of the funnier media bumbles I have read in a while so let’s talk

Millennial Tyranny in the Connected Car - Nielsen's latest AutoTECHCAST study once again introduces confusion to the connected car debate, but it's understandable and relates to a demographic gradient around technology. Young people are aware of an interested in so-called "brought-in" technologies,

Flex Logix validating EFLX on TSMC 40ULP - Flex Logix has been heads-down for the last several months working toward customer implementations of their EFLX reconfigurable RTL IP cores. Today, they’ve announced a family of 10 hard IP cores ready in TSMC 40ULP, and provided an update to their roadmap for us. CEO Geoff Tate emphasized that as a small company with a substantial investment in qualifying IP against stringent TSMC processes, Flex Logix is very customer-driven in prioritizing their...

Low Frequency Noise Challenges IC Designs - AMS and RF IC designers have known for years that their circuits are sensitive to noise, because if you amplify noise on an input source to an amplifier circuit then your chip can start to produce wrong answers. Even digital SoC designers need to start taking notice because every SoC is filled with SRAM IP blocks, and at each shrinking process node the contribution of Random Telegraph Noise (RTN) increases and then cuts into the Vdd design margins...

Striving for one code base in accelerated testbenches - Teams buy HDL simulation for best bang for the buck. Teams buy hardware emulation for the speed. We’ve talked previously about SCE-MI transactors as a standardized vehicle to connect the two approaches to get the benefits of both in an accelerated testbench – what else should be accounted for? Jim Kenney of Mentor Graphics has written a new white paper thinking through some of the details after a SCE-MI approach is selected. We all kno...

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.
