It’s A Semi Party!

We’re having ourselves a grand ol’ semiconductor party this week. Granted it may not be as fun as those corporate holiday get togethers that happen around this time of year, when Norma in accounting wears a lampshade on her head, and you slip that white elephant gift you “won” under the desk of your unsuspecting cube mate, but we’re gonna have some serious fun nonetheless. This week my guest is Harrison Beasley (Technical Working Groups Manager – Global Semiconductor Alliance) and we’re gonna lay down some serious chat about the past, present, and future of the semiconductor industry.

Also this week I unveil my choice for Amelia’s Geeky Stocking Stuffer and announce a brand new nerdy giveaway.

As discussed in part 1 of this blog post, each instance of an Achronix Speedcore eFPGA in your ASIC or SoC design must be configured after the system powers up because Speedcore eFPGAs employ nonvolatile SRAM technology to store its configuration bits. The time required to pr...
