#NEWS Diamond Microchips Going Commercial Starting with 100 GHz Processors that Run Cool / (NextGenLog)
After a decade of development diamond semiconductors may be ready for prime time. Even at the 100 nanometer node, they are 10X faster than silicon, enabling Moores Law to reset a decade, and processor speeds to be ramped up to the terahertz range, rather than be stuck at 5-GHz resulting in hard-to-program multi-core substitutes...

Architectural exploration is at the heart of any ASIP design approach. This white paper explains the architectural tradeoffs available to an ASIP designer, such as performance vs. area, and why an ASIP design can still maintain full C-programmability while being optimized for a certain application domain.
Introducing a networking protocol DDS. Serving as the connectivity platform for real-world Industrial Internet of Things applications in medicine, transportation, energy, SCADA and
Performance of multicore SoCs is often dominated by external DRAM access, particularly in digital consumer devices running high quality video and graphics applications. Increasing core counts and newer DRAMs make the problems much more difficult. This article covers optimization of the on-chip network and memory system to achieve the required system throughput.
Using virtualization to host multiple discrete workloads on a single computing device is an important trend in manufacturing today, leading to reduced cost and complexity in the factory environment. This white paper describes the benefits of system consolidation along with the technical requirements for implementation. Read now to learn more.
