Design tools spur fuel cell development year round Design How-To 5/31/2007 Post a comment Challenge X EXCLUSIVE: Developing a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle in three years is a daunting task. In a northern climate that only allows test driving on roads for eight months of the year, the task is nearly impossible--without the correct tools that is.
Intel researchers focus on parallel software News & Analysis 5/25/2007 Post a comment With the rise of multicore CPUs the push for parallel software has become job number 1 for Intel's microprocessor R&D labs where researchers are developing domain-specific languages, as well as parallel versions of existing languages and applications.
Microsoft says PCs may need DRAM upgrade News & Analysis 5/18/2007 Post a comment Desktop and notebook computers need to adopt error-correcting code (ECC) memory to fend off rising system crashes from single-bit memory errors, according to a confidential white paper written by Microsoft Corp.
UMC targets CPUs, mulls commodity flash News & Analysis 5/7/2007 Post a comment As IDMs push to go fabless or fab-lite, UMC chief executive Jackson Hu says there will be more opportunities for the foundry to push into microprocessors and flash memory, a market he said the foundry "cannot ignore."
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
