    Soft Errors - Hard Facts
    Published. July 17, 2018

    I am long overdue to include a blog on the functional safety requirements for software and indeed the functional safety requirements for Verilog code however this isn’t that blog. By soft errors I mean bit flips in RAM or FF that are not caused by hard errors and therefore disappear when the power is cycled. Previously soft errors were largely ignored and reliability predictions concentrated on hard errors but when IEC 61508-2:2010 mentioned soft errors they could no longer be ignored. This...

    M&A: Avago grabbed Broadcom, Intel grabs Altera
    Published. June 1, 2015

    Avago continues its acquisition spree. Broadcom (network chipsets and NPUs, CPUs, etc.). This is looking like a more integrated semiconductor IP play here. They grabbed LSI, and shed the non-chippery bits. They grabbed PLX. And Emulex. As they say, curiouser and curiouser. This makes perfect sense to me, and given the other acquisition announced today,… Read More »...
