Xmos has launched a series of microcontrollers based on its timesliced multicore architecture that adds Gigabit Ethernet interfaces.
The 2015 Design Automation Conference in San Francisco will feature keynotes that focus on body-worn electronics such as Google’s Smart Contact Lens and automotive issues.
Texas Instruments has launched a family of ARM-based microcontrollers intended to act as a migration path from its low-energy 16bit MSP430 series, developing its own flash-capable 90nm process to implement them.
Flow draws on existing strengths in Xpedition, Valor, Nimbic and Flotherm among others to optimize 3D design projects and improve cross-disciplinary communication.
ARM and Cadence have signed a deal that provides the IP teams at both companies with access to each other's cores.
Foundry veteran Simon Yang told Semicon China while things are looking up the country cannot count on ‘traditional’ methods or advantages if it's to be a major chipmaker.
CEA-Leti has launched a design center called Silicon Impulse with the intention of lowering the entry barrier to using the FD-SOI process.
The FD-SOI technology developed by CEA-Leti and STMicroelectronics is beginning to gain ground as chipmakers investigate the process as a way to deliver low-energy, wireless-capable SoCs.
As plans crystallize to take FD-SOI down to 10nm, CEA-Leti argues that the technology can provide an alternative path to that of finFETs to get to 7nm processes and beyond.
Cadence Design Systems has coupled the parallel-processing techniques behind its recently launched sign-off tools to engines intended to deal with sub-28nm process issues in a suite that reworks the company’s key implementation tools.
