I agree with most of the comments here that this is reflection of the confidence that the company has. Just wondering if this will inspire other companies to come-up with such innovative marketing tactics ?

Every year, auto industry is pumping out of car with a little bit of change from the last year, because they know a customer does not want to buy the 1 year old car with the same price. For a very new car, automaker prepares for many years from a part to assembly line. A bit different from ASIC industry. ASIC/FPGA/System industry is usually run 6 month or 1 year to compete a new design. As tools and expertise are getting mature, a design phase may become shorter. More over, some of design cycle, particularly in a back-end cycles are almost one push-button style. Why ASIC design process is delayed sometime is due to a complexity of verification. From what I read other engineers’ article and my experience, there is a bottleneck in verification process. The functional count multiplied by a clock speed is almost impossible to meet a time line. That is why any IP coming up, because it is not my bug, if IP works incorrectly. I don’t want to argue with Sherwani’s sales pitch. I have to say this is very unrealistic sales talk to a hand-on verification engineer, while it is very attractive offer to Director or CFO level. If you get your money back for a slip of project schedule, it is the one I could bet my money on, regardless who they did it.

Truly a great offering from Open-Silicon, for the first time someone in the silicon asic industry has spoken like words, this also shows the confidence in his field when they give this kind of commitment.

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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
