Why 100-Year-Old Analog Technology Will Never Leave Us

8/8/2019
More
The Embedded Insiders ask the ultimate question: why can’t we replace analog circuitry with new digital material that’s far superior to anything in analog? At the very component circuit level, you still have to move electrons around and you can’t change the law of physics. We will always try to take a signal from the real world and turn it into something digital; wouldn’t that always require a certain amount of analog circuitry in a system? Can analog fight for its existence in a high-tech...

Semiconductor Shipments Trending Down. Integration or Consolidation?

7/30/2019
More
A recent embedded industry report indicates that chip content in systems is projected to drop by 25 percent in 2019. Huh? As more and more every day objects are electrified and digitized, that doesn't make much sense - unless you consider that perhaps more and more discrete semiconductors are now being packaged into fewer and fewer highly integrated yet more powerful devices. This week, the Embedded Insiders crunch the numbers and debate what could be behind them. Is it a real phenomenon...

Does the OpenHW Group Make RISC-V Real?

6/18/2019
More
The RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA) has garnered a lot of attention amongst academia and startups. But, being so new, there has been a limited amount of RISC-V IP that one would classify as "production-ready", and, of course, even less silicon. However, a new industry organization, the OpenHW Group, is looking to take open-source hardware technologies like RISC-V from prototypes to products. This week, Rick O'Connor, President of OpenHW Group and former Executive Director of the...
