Technical Paper Round-Up: July 26


New technical papers added to Semiconductor Engineering’s library this week. [table id=41 /] Semiconductor Engineering is in the process of building this library of research papers. Please send suggestions (via comments section below) for what else you’d like us to incorporate. If you have research papers you are trying to promote, we will review them to see if they are a good fit f... » read more

Identifying PCB Defects with a Deep Learning Single-Step Detection Model


This new technical paper titled "End-to-end deep learning framework for printed circuit board manufacturing defect classification" is from researchers at École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) in Montreal, Quebec. Abstract "We report a complete deep-learning framework using a single-step object detection model in order to quickly and accurately detect and classify the types of manufacturi... » read more

Asynchronous Design: Is It Time Yet?


Non-mainstream technologies can offer advantages over more commonly used approaches, but usually at some additional cost (otherwise they’d probably be mainstream). The additional cost could be in design time, area, testability or whatever, and it might even be only a temporary disadvantage. If comparable time and energy were invested in the new technology, perhaps the additional costs would d... » read more
