Better Chips, Better Cars


There are literally thousands of electronic components in a new car, and those numbers are only going to increase as cars become smarter, safer, greener, and increasingly connected. As automakers and Tier 1 and Tier 2 companies shift their focus from mechanical to a combination of mechanical and electrical, there is an ongoing race among fabless companies to come up with innovative technolog... » read more

40nm Technology Reinvigorated


When selecting a foundry process for mobile consumer focused products, chip designers are considering the economics of the solution just as much as the technical specifications. Using the latest and greatest finFET process might get you performance headroom above your spec, but could cost significantly more than using a more established, proven process. Today‚Äôs 40nm CMOS processes have bee... » read more
