Xavier Simplifies Self-Driving Cars
Nvidia has revealed details of its next-generation Xavier SoC, the first chip to integrate all the processor cores that a complete Level 4/5 autonomous-driving system needs.
Intel Bridges Gap to 2.5D Packaging
Intel’s Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) packaging is less expensive than silicon interposers. It appears in an FPGA and likely in future server processors as well.
Nordic Tackles Multiprotocol IoT
Nordic Semiconductor has beefed up its wireless-MCU lineup by delivering the NRF52840, which adds more SRAM and flash memory plus enhanced security features.
Editorial: Neural Networks Going Local
Cloud servers execute most neural networks today, but an increasing number of chips enable neural networks for client devices. This approach will ultimately make these devices more intelligent.
Marvell First With Octal 5GBase-T PHY
Marvell is sampling the industry’s first eight-port PHY for 5GBase-T, as well as an optimized single-port device. The new chips meet full 802.3bz and NBase-T specifications.
