Last November, our industry celebrated the 75th anniversary of the announcement by Bell Telephone Labs (BTL) of the transistor’s birth. I knew that many facets of the transistor’s invention would be well covered so I didn’t plan to add an article to this pile because I didn’t feel I had much to improve upon … Read More → "The Transistor at 75: The First Makers, Part 1"
My podcast this week is all about chiplets, chiplet interconnects, and the Bunch of Wires (BoW) chiplet interconnect architecture! My guests hail from Eliyan – who is leading the pack when it comes to chiplet interconnect technology. Ramin Farjadrad (Co-founder and CEO), Patrick Soheili (Co-founder & Head of Business and Corporate Development) and Syrus Ziai (Co-founder & VP of Engineering) … Read More → "Calling All Chiplets! Eliyan and the Ultimate Chiplet Interconnect"
Generally speaking, I tend to duck when someone lobs a business-related press release in my direction. Call me a techno-weenie if you will, but I really don’t care to learn that Company A has been pondering the possibility of potentially signing a letter of intent with Company B to establish a framework within which to commence discussions about the prospect of collaborating on some vaguely … Read More → "Performing Extreme AI Analog Compute Sans Semiconductors"
Ever since I started reading science fiction as a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed young lad, I was exposed to the concept of robots that could “think” in that they could perceive the world around them and respond accordingly.
I was particularly impressed by the robots in Isaac Asimov’s stories in books like Read More → "Who Needs a Network-on-Chip (NoC)? Everyone!"
Intel Introduces Two Monolithic Agilex FPGA and SoC Families, Part 2: Sundance Mesa is now the Agilex 5 E-Series
Last September, I published an article on EEJournal.com that described two new Intel Agilex FPGA and SoC device families, the Agilex 5 D-series and an as-yet-unnamed series formerly known as “Sundance Mesa,” introduced at last year’s Intel Innovation. (See “Intel Introduces Two Monolithic Agilex FPGA and SoC Families, Part 1</ … Read More → "Intel Introduces Two Monolithic Agilex FPGA and SoC Families, Part 2: Sundance Mesa is now the Agilex 5 E-Series"
This week’s Fish Fry podcast is all about photonics and the future of optical computing! Maurice (Mo) Steinman from Lightelligence and I chat about why Lightelligence is on a mission to be the leader in silicon photonics computing, the details of PACE (Lightelligence’s first fully integrated optical computing platform), and what sets this computing platform apart from traditional silicon chips.
