To get a sense for what's driving electronics engineers in
2014, look no farther than Cadence's
blogs: So far this year, stories about FinFETs, advanced-node availability
and certification, how to design with MIPI, and the future of electronics and
EDA have become our most-read posts through the first half of the year.
Since it's summer and it's a time for catching up on your
industry reading, here's what hot (stories followed by top 10 ranking):
FinFETs and Advanced
Interest in vertical silicon structures and the
migration to 16/14nm and below began in earnest in the spring of 2013. Interest
has not waned a bit since then.
Of note was the TSMC Symposium in April where these topics
were on the minds of presenters. Richard Goering weighed in on four TSMC keynote
TSMC Technology Symposium: Full Speed Ahead for 16nm FinFET Plus, 10nm, and 7nm;
#1, #5), while I offered a peek at how the design ecosystem is poised to
exploit these technology breakthroughs (TSMC
Symposium: EDA/IP Ecosystem Primed for 16, 10nm Nodes; #7).
IP and Mobile
The mobile design world has become riveted by the MIPI
protocol, expected to ship more than 4 billion devices this year. One of our
newest blogs, Whiteboard Wednesdays, offered an overview of MIPI and the MIPI
the MIPI Alliance Works to Enhance Mobile Devices; #2) and Goering reported
on Cadence's VIP solution for MIPI SoundWire and C-PHY (Cadence
Announces Verification IP for MIPI SoundWireTM and C-PHY; #3).
2014 has so far been a positive year for most vendors,
although caution continues to be the watchword when we look ahead. Nimish Modi,
Cadence's senior vice president for marketing and business development, talked with
Goering about where system design in general and Cadence in particular are
headed in the coming years (Q&A
with Nimish Modi: Going Beyond Traditional EDA; #4). And on the other side
of the planet from Silicon Valley, Jaswinder Ahuja, corporate vice president
and managing director, Cadence India, talked with me about the enormous
opportunities ahead for EDA and for the Indian electronics market (Semiconductor
Industry Outlook: Enormous Opportunity, Says Jaswinder Ahuja; #9)
These were the big trend areas. Other hot spots for readers
in the first half of the year were:
