Winners And Losers At The Edge


The edge is a vast collection of niches tied to narrow vertical markets, and it is likely to stay that way for years to come. This is both good and bad for semiconductor companies, depending upon where they sit in the ecosystem and their ability to adapt to a constantly shifting landscape. Some segments will see continued or new growth, including EDA, manufacturing equipment, IP, security an... » read more

Setting Up An Embedded Development Board For Cloud-Based IoT Service


Everyday there are new devices appearing in homes, offices, hospitals, factories and thousands of other places that are part of the Internet-of-Things (IoT). Clearly, they need to be connected to the internet and there is a need for a huge amount of raw data to be collected, stored and processed on the cloud. There are many data centers available to store the data. However, only some provide... » read more

Wi-Fi 6 For Low-Power IoT


The internet of things, known as the IoT, is a rapidly growing market, and no surprise. While some question the need to connect everything to the internet, if it’s simple and cost-effective it’s a no brainer. Wireless sensors are a case in point. You can monitor equipment to detect any indication of equipment failure, check temperatures in your restaurant to ensure your fridge remains co... » read more

3 Challenges In Edge Designs


As companies begin exploring what will be necessary to win at the edge, they are coming up with some daunting challenges. Designing chips for the edge is far different than for the IoT/IIoT. The idea with the IoT was that simple sensors would relay data through a gateway to the cloud, where it would be processed and data could be sent back to the device as needed. That works if it's a small ... » read more

AI, 5G, IoT Combine In The Fifth Wave Of Computing


Something hugely positive is happening as a result of AI, 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT) reaching maturity at the same time. Like three kids growing up together, these technologies are feeding off each other’s energy and enhancing each other’s impact on the world. It’s this union, far greater than the sum of its parts, that I call the Fifth Wave of Computing. Why the fifth? We... » read more

Data Will Swamp The Internet, Unless We Think Differently


To harvest the IoT device and data opportunity in the coming years, companies must rethink their infrastructure strategy. This means re-imagining computing from the edge to the cloud. Download this report to see how leading teams are transforming their infrastructure strategies today to win tomorrow. Click here to read more. » read more

Configuring Processors In The Field


The convergence of two technologies, extensible processors and embedded FPGAs, is enabling the creation of processors that can be dynamically configured in the field. But it's not clear if there is a need for them or how difficult would it be to program them. This remains an open question even though there is evidence of its usefulness in the past and new products are expected to reach the mark... » read more

What Makes A Chip Tamper-Proof?


The cyber world is the next major battlefield, and attackers are busily looking for ways to disrupt critical infrastructure. There is widespread proof this is happening. “Twenty-six percent of the U.S. power grid was found to be hosting Trojans," said Haydn Povey, IAR Systems' general manager of embedded security solutions. "In a cyber-warfare situation, that's the first thing that would b... » read more

Conflicting Demands At The Edge


Semiconductor Engineering sat down to define what the edge will look like with Jeff DeAngelis, managing director of the Industrial and Healthcare Business Unit at Maxim Integrated; Norman Chang, chief technologist at Ansys; Andrew Grant, senior director of artificial intelligence at Imagination Technologies; Thomas Ensergueix, senior director of the automotive and IoT line of business at Arm; V... » read more
