Price parity evades DDR market Blog 11/28/2001 Post a comment Boise, Idaho -- It turns out that Micron Technology's vow to sell DDR modules at parity with single data rate SDRAM DIMMS was a "campaign promise."
When double data rate chips suddenly became scarce and DDR started selling at a nice premium over SDRAM, guess who is no longer selling at parity?
Processor makers need to climb off the speed bandwagon Blog 11/14/2001 Post a comment Forget it, Intel. The processor clock speed race is over, killed by its own success.
ITEM: The faster the processor runs, the more circuitry is needed to control the chip at fantastic speeds. That additional overhead cuts into the processing power, according to the October issue of MIT's Technology Review Magazine.
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
