Fifteen years on from the design gap that triggered the IP revolution, implementation costs have created a new one.
Researchers from the UC Berkeley and Intel teamed up to develop an energy-tuneable RF front-end on a digital finFET process with no need for analog process options.
DAC in June will feature a series of keynotes and technical sessions on machine learning and AI for both target applications and in the design process itself.
But project lead Chenming Hu, 'finFET's father', has also highlighted important changes in the funding landscape for university research.
Open-source hardware, in-field configurability, and a hardware-plus-services approach could protect margins as the IoT hammers down costs, says GSA report.
Technology from advanced-physics research institute CERN will form part of National Instruments' long-term strategy to improve the ability of distributed systems to support real-time control.
CMOS approaches are likely to underpin electronics for the next century, according to Chenming Hu, father of the finFET
The purchase of Tensilica by Cadence Design Systems could prove the way that EDA and multicore-based system design come together.
Mears Technologies and UC Berkeley describe at IEDM 2012 how oxygen in a silicon superlattice could boost performance beyond strained silicon at 14nm.
