Semiwise, a startup founded by University of Glasgow professor Asen Asenov and former CEO of Gold Standard Simulations (GSS), has developed a low-power CMOS transistor technology suitable for ultralow-power sensor nodes.
Menta SAS has launched an embedded FPGA core family that improves density over previous versions.
Foundry strikes two more Internet of Things subsystem deals for its 55nm ULP process based on Cadence Tensilica and Imagination MIPS/PowerVR cores.
Gold Standard Simulations (GSS) has launched a tool intended to help fabless chipmakers squeeze more out of existing processes rather than accept the risk and expense of moving to more advanced, finFET-based processes.
S3 Group has launched the second in a family of low-power successive-approximation ADCs, with a design that supports sample rates up to 320MS/s.
