Sensors on the Brain and FinFETs in the Game

Fish Fry is headed to the Land of Next this week – the next process nodes, the next big breakthrough in brain sensor technology, and the next Kickstarter investment you should consider. My guest is Wilbur Luo (Cadence) and we’re talking 16, 14, and 10nm, what’s in store for these next process nodes, and how the design challenges associated with FinFETs are going to keep us on our toes.

Also this week, I’ve got a brand new nerdy giveaway – the Microchip TCHIP003 chipKIT™ Starter Pak – courtesy of Mouser and Microchip Technology. You can enter to win one for your own by posting a comment on this week’s Fish Fry page.

In 1995, I attended a seminar in which the presenter told us that copper was dead.  This sort of statement is not new. The connector market is filled with armchair pundits who predict the demise of everything from D-Subminiature connectors (which are very much alive and ...

[From the last episode: We looked at subroutines in computer programs.] We saw a couple weeks ago that some memories are big, but slow (flash memory). Others are fast, but not so big '€“ and they'€™re power-hungry to boot (SRAM). This sets up an interesting problem. When ...
