ST has signed up Samsung as a volume manufacturer of FDSOI, but it also needs the wholehearted support from the proverbial “ecosystem” made up of the great and the good in EDA and IP cores. Here’s Cadence. Where's ARM?
IHS explores the design aspects that affect LTE advanced features plus the impact of original designs on those features.
A YouTube demo that shows a cellphone being charged up in 30s had a battery that was smaller in capacity than standard. And even then the math doesn't add up.
Microsoft abandoning license fees is a significant step away from the heritage of the company but will not actually make significant difference in the smartphone market.
Intel is entering the wearables market for the second time, 40 years after its first foray. That was a failure and Intel appears determined to ignore the lessons of history.
Just because a chip supports LTE doesn't necessarily mean it will provide the end user with a positive experience.
The longterm outlook for machinery appears positive thanks to improving economic conditions and other factors helping to drive growth in machinery production.
The Internet has become a spying and communications (back)bone of contention. But should Europe build its own Internet?
China's industrial-robot market is set for strong expansion by the end of 2013 and beyond, mainly propelled by demand for mechanical alternatives in China.
Microsoft could garner some admiration by taking a page from Apple's playbook and offering its latest PC operating system for free.
Arguments for and against the Defense Logistics Agency's mandate to use DNA marking on components using a solution from Applied DNA Sciences.
Three driving forces are creating momentum for supply chain executives to start chasing the myriad of solutions being offered to tackle the "analytics" challenge.
The cost of design will continue to rise as the market's appetite for more complex and sophisticated electronics increases unabated—unless we do things differently.
Duke University researchers have developed a unique device to harvest energy wirelessly from microwave signals, operating similarly to a solar panel, but with the ability to convert practically any type of signal to electrical energy.
Struggling enterprise services provider and smartphone manufacturer Blackberry announced another change in management less than two years following the departure of long-time co-CEOs Mike Lazaridis and Jim Basille.
Supply chains are fraught with risk, from natural disasters to other risks that have even higher probability of occurrence and potentially equal or greater impacts.
Like PC computing in the 80s, Internet computing in the 90s and mobile computing in the early 2000s, the Internet of Things will be the driving factor behind semiconductor solution development in this decade.
Medical represents a potentially high-growth market for industrial PCs, but will it bring the growth that industrial PC vendors are seeking?
The next wave of wearable computers will use increasingly efficient, low power displays, stretchable electronics and even energy harvesting to extend battery life as more functionality is incorporated into any given device.
The world market for programmable logic controllers was severely challenged in 2012 as it went through its first downturn since 2009. As a result, most major markets contracted. So where will the growth come from?
The Electronic Components and Technology Conference (ECTC) is the premier international event that brings together the best in packaging, components and microelectronic systems science, technology and education in an environment of cooperation and technical exchange. ECTC is sponsored by the Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology (CPMT) Society of the IEEE.
The IEEE MTT International Microwave Symposium (IMS) is the premier annual international meeting for technologists involved in all aspects of microwave theory and practice. It consists of a full week of events, including technical paper presentations, workshops, and tutorials, as well as numerous social events and networking opportunities. The symposium also hosts a large commercial exhibition. Co-located with IMS are the IEEE RFIC and ARFTG conferences.
