Déjà Vu All Over Again

Posted by Shelly Stalnaker

Shelly Stalnaker Trailblazers, followers, and stragglers…semiconductor companies have usually always sorted themselves out along these lines. At 20nm, though ,we’re beginning to see a shift in these classifications that is affecting both technology node adoption and market strategy. Only a few companies are moving to nodes at 20nm and below, while many of the typical followers have decided to stay at 28nm … Read More

Nazita Saye I believe in simulation and its effectiveness. I’ve seen how much money it can save. I’m also not the most patient person on the face of the planet. Therefore, I like simulation because it can give fast answers to rather big questions. But sometimes you need more.  Sometimes you also need to measure the real world. This is especially true in the world of semiconductors. You see heat dissipation in … Read More

If you are involved with semiconductor packaging design, then have I got news for you. We just announced the availability of FloTHERM IC – a web-based tool that delivers a high level of automation to design tasks associated with full-spectrum thermal characterization and validation. From what I understand, a typical semiconductor thermal team spends about 60% of their time on standard package thermal
