Automotive ISO 26262 and ADAS video is online

SemiEngineering has published a Tech Talk video I did with editor Ed Sperling about the ISO 26262 standard and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

New tech paper: Optimizing Enterprise-Class SSD Host Controller Design

Enterprise SSD endurance and data reliability require unique interconnect features in host controller SoCs.

We have a new detailed technical paper written by Senior Solutions Architect Dee Lin and myself about the new challenges faced by enterprise SSD host controller teams in meeting SSD endurance, power and performance requirements.

CES 2016: CPU, GPU or … VPU?

Winners, losers and observations from the Consumer Electronics Show

Where is the semiconductor industry going in the post-smartphone era? What trends are going to shape next-generation applications and SoC development?

Just by walking around the CES show floor this year, I would say advanced visual processing technology is the horse to put money on. It was everywhere, from ADAS systems, drones, to GoPro cameras, IP cameras with embedded facial recognition, motion detectors, virtual reality, augmented reality, displays and a whole lot more.

How is SSD flash memory like a helicopter?

It destroys itself as it is operating.*

Bear with me now as I explain how SSD flash memory works similar to helicopters...

First, let's explain the helicopter part of this analogy: Fixed wing aviators (i.e. non-helicopter pilots) are keen to remind people that the act of converting a jet engine's axial force into the orthogonal axis required to spin a helicopter rotor requires a sophisticated gearbox that slowly (and sometimes not so slowly) grinds itself to death through friction.
