How Can a Digital Twin Help Semiconductor Systems Design?

A digital twin is a virtual, extremely detailed version of a physical asset. People create them as single components and all the way up to entire factories. Doing so can let them see the impact of certain decisions before moving ahead with them in real life.

Batteries? We don’t need no stinking batteries.

We’re still used to thinking that low-power chips for “mobile” or “Internet-of-Things (IoT)” applications will be battery powered…but the near ubiquity of lithium-ion cells powering batteries could be threatened by capacitors and energy-harvesting circuits connected to photovoltaic/thermoelectric/piezoelectric micro-power sources. At…
