IOTech and Lotus Labs Deliver AI and Visual Inferencing at the IoT Edge

by Max Maxfield

“Oh, my giddy aunt!” I find it hard to believe that the last time I wrote about IOTech here on EEJournal was in “the before times” we used to call April 2020 when I waffled on about IOTech: Bridging the OT-IT Divide. Now I have even more exciting news to impart, but first…

I was wondering about the origin of the phrase, “Oh, my giddy aunt,” so I took it upon myself to have a quick Google while no one was looking, only to find that there’s

Add Authentication Security to Automotive Endpoints Using the 1-Wire Interface

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated (now part of Analog Devices)

By adding a single authentication IC, automotive designers can authenticate a component with only one signal between an ECU and endpoint component. This is particularly important as counterfeit and theft are increasingly problems in automotive applications. This application note describes how to implement the DS28E40 Deep Cover 1-Wire Authenticator in a system to provide authentication for optical cameras, headlamps, EV Batteries, occupancy sensors, and even steering wheels, and more.

Machine-Learning Optimized Chip Design -- Cadence Design Systems

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

New applications and technology are driving demand for even more compute and functionality in the devices we use every day. System on chip (SoC) designs are quickly migrating to new process nodes, and rapidly growing in size and complexity. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rod Metcalfe about how machine learning combined with distributed computing offers new capabilities to automate and scale RTL to GDS chip implementation flows, enabling design teams to support more, and increasingly complex, SoC projects.

How Long Will it Take for the Chip Shortage to Ease?
You're right, kgon1. I am using 200mm fabs as proxies for old lithographies. Upgrading fabs to 300mm means the old tooling for chips made with 200mm equipment needs to be redone. I think many fab vendors drop those lithographies at that point. When they eol a process node, that's the ...

How Long Will it Take for the Chip Shortage to Ease?
It costs money to maintain a fab just as it costs money to build one. If clean room floor space can be repurposed for more profit by changing out machines to go with finer pitch lithographies, it usually makes economic sense to do so. That upgrade comes at the expense ...
