Week In Review: Design, Low Power


Ansys will acquire Lumerical, a developer of photonic design and simulation tools. "The potential of photonics in applications like 5G, IIoT and autonomous vehicles can only be realized by solving immense multiphysics device and system challenges," said James Pond, co-CEO and CTO of Lumerical. "Together, Lumerical and Ansys are uniquely positioned to provide the necessary solutions, and custome... » read more

Making 3D Structures And Packages More Reliable


The move to smaller vertical structures and complex packaging schemes is straining existing testing approaches, particularly in heterogeneous combinations on a single chip and in multi-die packages. The complexity of these devices has exploded with the slowdown in scaling, as chipmakers turn to architectural solutions and new transistor structures rather than just relying on shrinking featur... » read more

Design Automation For Silicon Photonics: Pushing Research Into Production


Silicon photonics is a transformative technology that will have a major impact on system architectures in future IC design applications. Already a major solution for Datacom applications and emerging applications in sensing, design techniques in silicon photonics, with the ability to leverage CMOS technology to integrate large numbers of photonic components, are now being applied to enable opti... » read more

The Week In Review: Manufacturing


Trade President Trump this week announced his decisions on the actions the administration will take in response to China’s alleged unfair trade practices covered in the USTR Section 301 investigation of “China’s Acts, Policies, and Practices Related to Technology Transfer, Intellectual Property, and Innovation.” Trump has proposed import tariffs that amount to about $60 billion on pro... » read more
