Strukturierte ASICs wandeln auf schmalem Grat
3/22/2005   Post a comment
Mit einsetzender Reife und der Herausbildung von Produktreihen für strukturierte ASICs taucht ein vorhersehbares Problem auf – das Sortimentmanagement. Da die strukturierten Bauteile definitionsgemäß von vorneherein mit bestimmten funktionellen Ressourcen ausgerüstet sind, sind sie nicht universell einsetzbar. Kein Gerät kann alle Anforderungen des Markts erfüllen.
Addressing EDA's malaise
3/21/2005   Post a comment
When I started covering EDA — or what was then called computer-aided engineering — in 1985, there was a sense of excitement.
U.S. needs a profit model for energy efficiency
3/21/2005   Post a comment
Regarding T.J. Rodgers' Jan. 17 letter ("Fed meddling won't help solar era dawn," page 24): I take issue with his casual characterization of solar power as "a pure, green source of energy."
Le secteur des semi-conducteurs face à une « année difficile » en 2005
3/18/2005   Post a comment
Malgré certains aspects positifs sur les marchés grand public, des PC et du sans fil, le secteur des circuits intégrés est confronté à une « année difficile » en 2005, ont affirmé certains fournisseurs et analystes lors de l’Embedded Systems Conference (Conférence sur les systèmes embarqués ou ESC).
Selon Hans Stork, les coûts de R&D en nanotechnologie sont préoccupants
3/16/2005   Post a comment
Les coûts de recherche et développement dépassent chaque année de 4% la croissance des recettes du secteur des semi-conducteurs, ce qui pourrait freiner les innovations au cours des années à venir. « Si ce secteur n’était formé que d’une seule et unique entreprise, la situation actuelle ne serait pas tenable très longtemps », a indiqué Hans Stork, directeur de la technologie chez le fabricant de puces Texas Instruments.
Wi-Fi, cellular finally converge

I've enjoyed Tom Mahon's column and some of the postings on his Web site (www.reconnecting.com). Regarding "A zoom-lens mentality" (Feb. 7, page 56):
STMicroelectronics bezieht Fremdlizenz für FPGA-Blöcke
3/11/2005   Post a comment
STMicroelectronics' neuer GreenField-Chip für Funk-Infrastrukturen kommt mit einem FPGA-Block von einem Drittanbieter. Das erstaunt – denn ST entwickelt seit Jahren selbst FPGAs.
Day of reckoning coming for MBOA

FCC upcoming decision on MB-OFDM technology could have impacts in the IEEE and around the world.
EDA-Industrie braucht neue Geschäftsmodelle
3/7/2005   Post a comment
Die Komplexität der Schalkreise explodiert förmlich, im Gleichtakt damit werden die Software-Werkzeuge für das Chipdesign immer komplexer. Doch die Industrie, die diese Werkzeuge herstellt, tritt wirtschaftlich auf der Stelle. Professor Erich Barke, ein Vordenker der Branche, fordert neue Geschäftsmodelle – und dass sich diese Branche endlich in betriebswirtschaftlichen Größen definiert.
Embedded software ripe for EDA pioneers
3/7/2005   Post a comment
I enjoyed Richard Goering's Feb. 7 Art of Design column, which pointed out that there is much more to building end products than just custom-IC design ("Is EDA's world too provincial?" page 54). I couldn't agree more.
Single low-cost UWB standard a better choice than dual PHY
3/7/2005   Post a comment
Every consumer wants to live a "life without wires." The great promise of ultrawideband is that it can deliver on this desire.
Marking the moments
3/7/2005   Post a comment
Sometimes people stop me at conferences or end an e-mail note with "how's your mom?" I've written off and on about her and her medical odyssey for a few years.

Two of the three largest semiconductor companies in Europe are ushering new CEOs into their executive suites.
Les nouvelles technologies donnent une seconde jeunesse aux seniors
3/4/2005   Post a comment
Associer les nouvelles technologies à la jeunesse est une erreur. Les plus de 50 ans représentent désormais le segment à la croissance la plus rapide dans l’utilisation d’Internet à travers l’Europe. Lors de la Digital Futures Conference à Paris, le cabinet d’analystes espagnol Synovate a rappelé le potentiel de ce segment et la nécessité pour l’industrie de revoir instamment son approche de développement, marketing et de services.
Craig Barrett (Intel) met en garde les Etats-Unis contre la concurrence mondiale
3/2/2005   Post a comment
Le Président-directeur général sortant d’Intel, Craig Barrett, vient d’écrire un essai qui met en garde contre le fait que le leadership américain dans le secteur des semi-conducteurs n’est pas inévitable et que pour survivre face à la concurrence mondiale, les Etats-Unis doivent commencer par accepter le jeu de la concurrence.
Optical Image Stabilizers Still Beat Digital
3/1/2005   Post a comment
With all the recent advances in digital technology, why do optical image stabilizers endure? Why do they continue to provide tangibly better moving image picture quality?
What defines HP
3/1/2005   Post a comment
I'll leave it up to the business historians to write the epitaph for Carly Fiorina, the latest casualty in HP's battle to regain its glory. Fiorina had been a lightning rod since the Compaq acquisition was announced three and a half years ago. While many pundits are slamming her now, it will take time to put her six-year reign into proper perspective.

Autonomous vehicles on our roads soon? What could go wrong with that? Listen in as EE Times' Junko Yoshida asks industry experts what the intended and unintended consequences will be.
