Nvidia holds a more commanding share of dedicated accelerators than Intel holds in overall compute among the top four public cloud services.
HD mapping isn't a convenience; it can be critical for AVs, car OEMs and high-tech companies. There's a high-stakes game being played for data ownership.
The recent RISC-V Workshop in Zurich gave us a glimpse of where we are in its evolution
Crowd-sourcing platform delivers mixed signal RISC-V SoC silicon in three months.
This week: RISC-V has profound implications for the smartphone market; we checked to see if it's ready. Moore's Law will end - unless maybe chiplets? Engineers are getting drawn into the gig economy, and it's not the ones you'd think....
China trade tensions will slice $2 billion off its 2019 revenues, Broadcom said in the first big flash in a three-sided conflict where the first casualty likely is the U.S. semiconductor industry.
Six hundred companies sent a letter to President Donald Trump deploring his tariffs. There's a nearly complete lack of technology companies among the signatories.

Rocket startup Relativity expands operations at NASA's Stennis Space Center.
The desire to foster STEM skills risks becoming monomaniacal, to the detriment of liberal arts skills. That's not what the technology industry needs; it needs STEAM.
A higher degree used to represent immunity from the gig economy. That's not so any more.
Sustainability is a framework that helps us identify ethical issues and guides us toward equitable and just resolution.
The undergraduate program emphasizes hands-on courses, with a heavy dose of engineering ethics.
There's an insatiable need for engineers - or so we're told. We took a look at the skills that are at a premium now, which ones will be needed soon, and what that means for engineering education.
Speed still matters, but power is driving USB-C adoption for many applications.
Apple is reportedly still in talks to buy the German operations of Intel's 5G modem business, presumably to design an integrated modem into future A Series processors.
The company has implemented a program that enables designers to try RISC-V for free using its N22 core, with no upfront IP licensing fees.
Engineers can use AI to their advantage, according to a panel at the 2019 IEEE International Microwave Symposium. It will change the nature of EE jobs, but not replace an engineer's knowledge and intuition.
Global fab equipment spending is expected to drop 19% in 2019 on a decline in memory spending, but recover to notch 20% growth next year.
The Trident 4 switch for business networks comes with a new open-source programming language that Broadcom aims at the P4 from rival Barefoot Networks.
For automotive electronics, a key design challenge is to shrink the physical footprint of embedded systems while simultaneously fulfilling the demand for unprecedented connectivity, electrification, infotainment, and autonomous driving capabilities. HDI can help.
A handful of mainly academic researchers aim to create EmBench, a free benchmark for embedded processors based on real-world applications.
