As Moore’s Law Slows, Hedge Your Bets With Design Process Efficiency

Greater productivity, lower power, smaller die size and greater bandwidth await teams that adopt proven methodologies to streamline design in mature geometries.

Are you dreading the day when Moore’s Law comes to a grinding halt? I’m concerned, but I’m not as fatalistic as some.

The Semiconductor Industry Needs an IP Switzerland

It’s official: The great IP land grab has begun.

The process actually has been taking place gradually, but has accelerated with Imagination Technologies’ acquisition of MIPS last year and, most recently, Cadence’s acquisition of Tensilica. For makers of semiconductors, four competing IP behemoths are emerging after years of fragmentation within the semiconductor IP industry.
