Tilera launches many-core 64-bit processor Product News 6/24/2011 3 comments Fabless many-core processor vendor Tilera Corp. has launched its Tile-Gx 3000 family of 40-nm processors claiming they provide a 10-fold improvement over Intel's SandyBridge processor in terms of performance-per-watt.
Microchip's new RF power amps target embedded WAN Product News 6/21/2011 Post a comment Microchip Technology Inc. has expanded its RF power amplifier portfolio with the addition of the new SST12LP17E and SST12LP18E devices. The SST12LP17E is the smallest fully matched power amp in its class, requiring only one DC bypass capacitor to achieve optimum performance. The SST12LP18E is a lower-cost, lower-voltage alternative to Microchip’s popular SST12LP14E power amp.
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.
