Blog Review – Monday April 20, 2015

Half a century and still quoted as relevant is more than most of us could hope to achieve, so the 50 anniversary of Gordon Moore’s pronouncement which we call Moore’s Law is celebrated by Gaurav Jalan, as he reviews the observation first pronounced on April 19, 1965, which he credits with the birth of the EDA industry, and the fabless ecosystem amongst other things.

Another celebrant is Axel Scherer, Cadence, who reflects on not just shrinking silicon size but the speed of the passing of time.

On the same theme of what Moore’s Law means today for FinFets and nano-wire logic libraries, Navraj Nandra, Synopsys, also commemorates the anniversary, with an example of what the CAD team has been doing with quantum effects at lower nodes.

At NAB (National Broadcasters Association) 2015, in Las Vegas, Steve Leibson, Xilinx, had an ‘eye-opening’ experience at the CoreEL Technologies booth, where the company’s FPGA evaluation kits were the subject of some large screen demos.

Reminiscing about the introduction of the HSA Foundation, Alexandru Voica, Imagination Technologies, provides an update on why heterogeneous computing is one step closer now.

Dr. Martin Scott, the senior VP and GM of Rambus’ Cryptography Research Division, recently participated in a Silicon Summit Internet of Things (IoT) panel hosted by the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA). In this blog he discusses the security of the IoT and opportunities for good and its vulnerabilities.

An informative blog by Paul Black, ARM examines the ARM architecture and DS-5 v5.21 DSTREAM support for debug, discussing power in the core domain and how to manage it for effective debug and design.
