Internet-of-Things Infographic

This infographic, courtesy of Jabil, gives an good overview of what will be connected to the internet by 2020 (even garbage bins!).

Can we take cost out of technology scaling?

At The ConFab, IBM’s Gary Patton spoke about the future of scaling and concluded that it we will continue scaling with new technology innovation, but we have to figure out how to drive the cost out.

Three fundamental shifts

At The ConFab, IBM’s Gary Patton gave us three reasons to be very positive about the future of the semiconductor industry: an explosion of applications, the rise of big data and the need to analyze all that data.

The Rise of MEMS Sensors

Join us for a MEMS-focused webcast on Thursday, June 19th at 12:00pm Eastern time. Presenters will be Jay Esfandyari from STMicroelectronics and Simone Severi from imec.

The next big thing: IoT

Extreme Stress for Existing Foundry/Fabless Model

The increased performance and the rapid shift from traditional handsets to consumer computing device post a number of manufacturing and supply chain challenges for fabless chip makers. The scale of the challenges also creates an “extreme stress” for the existing foundry/fabless model to defend its excellence in this dynamic landscape. Qualcomm’s Dr. Roawen Chen will discuss headwinds and opportunities in a keynote talk at The ConFab.

At The ConFab 2014: The Outlook for the Semiconductor Industry

The semiconductor market will continue at a steady growth rate for the next several years. For a semiconductor company to achieve significant growth in this ultra-competitive environment, it needs to identify market opportunities and predict the future, in terms of…
