For this service to make sense you must be tied very closely to the foundry. There has been number of companies like PDF Solutions that have been offering yield enhancement service for years. What is different about GSS? Kris
I have noticed that what happens in the foundry influence a lot. I would have liked this to come from the foundry consortium. There are many things that go wrong when a chip enters a foundry that modeling could just be a waste of time.
The variability doesn't come from the process only but also EDA tools because some layout effects are too complicated to model. Moreover, the variability requires wide range of design margin which seriously hurt the production cost.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
