Jim Hogan's 15 chip/fab/EDA predictions for 2014, 2015, 2016 ..., thanks to Jim Hogan, Ed Lee, and John Cooley's ESNUG!

[Very interesting predictions, I do see many of the same trends]

( ESNUG 535 Item 11 ) ------------------------------------------- [01/30/14]

From: [ Ed Lee of Lee PR ]
Subject: Jim Hogan's 15 design/fab/EDA predictions for 2014, 2015, 2016...

Hi, John,

Last month, I had lunch with Jim Hogan at one of his companies in San Jose.
It being the end of 2013, I asked Jim what specific high tech predictions
he saw coming over the next few years.  He made 15 of them.  I underlined
each in my notes below.

    - Ed Lee
      Lee PR, Inc.                               Redwood City, CA

         ----    ----    ----    ----    ----    ----   ----

Mobile will be bigger.  Jim sees in 2014, the Internet-of-Things (IoT) will
spur a lot of new end-product development in wearable devices, medical
devices, smart devices -- that save energy or run faster on current energy.
This dovetails into an aging baby boom generation that will be managing
their own health into their eighties.

Jim notes that as we talk about Power/Performance/Area (PPA) these days for
chip development: 

    "Until now, we've been designing for maximum performance.  From
     here on, we'll need to design for maximum efficiency in terms
     of accommodating the SW apps that will run on these devices."

Starting in 2014, Jim sees the design trigger for the chip industry becoming
Functionality or Capability -- like on-body health sensors -- and then their
performance/power/cost will be done later.

The value of these devices, Jim says, will be driven by software:

    "The chip's design differentiation will be in the software.
     Hardware IP or blocks will become commodities.  The IoT is
     largely assembling known HW blocks with unique SW apps."

What's the upshot?  What should chip designers and EDA tool vendors work
toward?   Jim tells us that we'll see:

   - Increasingly complex designs, complexity in terms of function
     (i.e. hundreds of SW application processors per SoC).

   - Overall fewer design starts, but sub-90 nm starts will increase.
     We'll see fabs retooling -- like GlobalFoundries is doing in
     Singapore -- to get the older nodes into 300 mm wafer economics.

   - Each chip design will include 100's of IP blocks.

   - There will be 70%+ IP re-use and majority will be 3rd-party
     commercial IP.

   - More than 60% of chip design effort will be in software, making
     hardware verification impossible in some cases.

   - On-chip software will be much more complex.

   - Chips will have majority Dark Silicon with an always-on sentry.

   - A lot more sensors: we'll see more mixed-signal content IoT,
     as the IoT touches the real world.

What's EDA's opportunity?  To deal with astronomical increases in effort and
dollars spent for verification and software development.

    "Each major system company will make their own application-specific
     SoC.  In this way they can offer a differentiated product in the
     market.  The challenge for EDA is selling into a new systems market
     where application knowledge is king.  Automotive will be an early
     target.  It is, after all, the largest mobile appliance; look at
     CES this year -- it was all about cars."

Jim pointed to the verification effort:

    "Right now, verification consumes ~70% of design effort.  In many
     cases, there is no way to ensure a system's performance.  This is
     why we see emulation becoming ubiquitous and formal methods being
     adopted.  As designs get more complex, managers will have to keep
     buying more companies to get more engineers and IP."

What's the impact?

    "A lot of systems companies through 2008/2009 became very efficient
     and remain very cash rich.  They have been acquiring companies for
     IP and application knowledge.  This will continue and we will see
     the bigger SoC and system companies continue to acquire specialized
     and ongoing businesses."

    "There's still a design-by-verification attitude; there's way too
     much reliance on verification at RTL.  This won't scale!"

Jim concluded with:

    "Chip design teams will shortly need new design flow strategies.
     We'll see verification move above RTL, and a greater reliance
     on High Level C-to-RTL Synthesis (HLS)."

It's be interesting to see which of these 15 Jim Hogan predictions actually
come true over the next few years.

A Warm Kotatsu sounds great about now: Awesome Everyday Japanese Things, thanks to WaysOfWanderers

7 Awesome Everyday Japanese Things That the Rest of the World Should Get

Part of me expected to be regularly awed by Japan’s wild inventions like pancake-making robots, and bizarre vending machines that sell everything imaginable. Instead, I’ve found that it’s the little things about Japan that impress me the most; the simple innovations that make everyday life significantly more efficient, as well as the frivolous products that are so completely awesome I can’t figure out why they haven’t caught on in the West.


awesome everyday japanese things: kotatsu in Japan
When I ask Japanese people how they stay warm in the winter, the answer is always the same: kotatsu. A kotatsu is a low table with an electric heater attached to its underside. In the winter, you turn on the heater, and drape a big blanket under the removable tabletop. You can then tuck your legs into the warm space under the table and work on the computer, watch TV, or do anything else you would normally do while sitting at a table. It surprised me to find that warming only my legs and feet actually makes my whole body feel warmer. The temperature has been steadily dropping over the last few weeks, and half my body is disappearing under the kotatsu on a nightly basis.

Cheap flights, one of many hints from Nomadic Matt's Travel Site !

How to Hack to A Flight

Since flights are usually the most expensive part of any trip, I thought I’d deal with this subject first. Finding a cheap flight is easier said than done these days. Routes and capacity have been cut and oil prices have risen. The combination of all three has lead to higher fares that are only going up. Flexibility is key to finding cheap flights, as deals are sometimes around for only a few hours. A day can mean the difference of hundreds of dollars. But if you need flights on a certain date, then you need to work the system a bit.
Let’s look at an example. Say I am flying from New York City to London. This is a popular route, and is served by a lot of airlines. I picked the date October 17th with a return date of October 27th.
Step 1: Use a site like Kayak as your baseline. They search multiple websites at once so you can see prices across the board. Moreover, I also like how they let you search a few days before and after your selected date. In the US, I also like Travelocity, but there are tons of good aggregators around the world.
Kayak returned these results for flying from New York to London:
Step 2: Cross check with other, more global aggregators like Skyscanner, or Momondo to see what they come up with. These two are my favorite as they tend to search a wider range of booking sites as well as discount airline carriers. I never book a flight without checking these sites first. (Two other good ones are Mobissimo and Vayama.)
Skyscanner results:
Momondo results:
Step 3: Find the lowest fare and head to that airline’s website to see if it is less. Sometimes airlines price tickets less on their own websites than they do on aggregators as a way to entice people to book directly. As we see above, the lowest fare is $592.19 USD on a low-cost airline called Mandarin Airlines (actually, when you click the link it sends you to Astraeus Airline) with Iceland Express next at $676 USD. I couldn’t find a booking form on Astraeus (they are a charter operation partially owned by Iceland Air) but checking on the Iceland Express website, we see the price is the same:
Step 4: Next, check the airline’s foreign website to see if the price is cheaper in another currency. (i.e. instead of Depending on your currency, you might be able to take advantage of the exchange rate and book in another currency while getting charged in your own currency, thereby saving money. On our example, this doesn’t work because we are going from the United States to England and the English Pound is worth more than the US dollar.However, if we were going the reverse way, this would work. I’ve used this method when flying to New Zealand since their currency is worth less than the US currency. Recently, a bunch of people used a loophole where they could buy Iceland Air points in Krona and transfer those to Alaskan Airways, then use those points and end up with a first class ticket to Hawaii for $300 USD!
Step 5: Try various routes. Most major airports have expensive fees and taxes that can add a lot of money to the price of a ticket. I like to check other big airports and then see if taking a discount flight to my final destination is cheaper. This is especially good in Europe since they have so many airlines. For our example, maybe flying to Dublin is cheaper, and then I can just take a quick Ryanair flight over to London. (Turns out, in our example, it isn’t.)
Step 6: See who flys into the airport you want to land at. One thing I do quite a bit is to go to the airport’s website and see what airlines fly into it. Sometimes you find small carriers that are not listed on aggregators or other search engines. This is sort of my last double check to make sure I checked all possible airlines. After all, I don’t want to find out later that there was an airline that offered a cheap flight but wasn’t listed on an aggregator. (Not all airlines appear on flight search engines.)
After I do all that checking and work, I might look at a few more websites and search for a lot of deals if I’ve found big differences between the numbers. Moreover, it is also good to play around with the dates of your trip. Sometimes leaving a few days before or after can make a big difference in price. In our example, it didn’t really make a huge difference when I looked at it. Most of the major airlines were much higher than what we found during that period:
So our $593 USD flight to London on Astraeus airline looks to be the best deal and is more than $200 USD cheaper than most of the major airlines and $100 USD cheaper than Iceland Express. Notice that Astreaus only appeared on 1 booking site and that booking site was not US-based. That’s why it is so important to check multiple sites from all over the world, because not all sites check all airlines. All this work took me about 45 minutes. While $200 USD isn’t a lot of money, spending 45 minutes to save $200 USD is worth it for me because that is $200 USD more I now have for my trip!

Finding Cheap Accommodations for Travel, thanks to Nomadic Matt !

Finding Cheap Accommodation

Accommodation is one of the biggest fixed costs travelers have and reducing that cost can lead to big savings! I’m sure many backpackers would sleep in a barn if it was the cheapest accommodation they could find!
No matter what your accommodation tastes may be, one thing everyone has in common is that no one wants to pay a fortune for it. In fact, one of the best ways to take a cheap holiday is to cut down on accommodation costs. Since you have to stay somewhere every night, reducing this expense can save you a lot of money off the total cost of your trip. Next to finding a cheap flight, finding free or inexpensive lodging will have the biggest impact on your budget.
Luckily, there are a number of ways travelers can find a decent place to stay without forking over their entire vacation fund:

Hospitality Exchanges

couchsurfing is cheap accommodation
One of the best ways to get free accommodation is by staying with someone who lives where you’re going. Stay with a local who will give you a free place to rest your head, local information, and someone to hang out with! There are a few websites that make this happen:
Couchsurfing is my favorite. The goal of the site is to help travelers not only save money on accommodation but also learn about the local culture by being able to stay and interact with a local.
I use this site all the time, and I think it’s one of the greatest things to happen in travel. While I love the fact I can get out of hostels and hotels and save money, what draws me to the site over and over again is that I get to see the local side of a city. I get taken to parties, and restaurants, and sites that aren’t in any guidebook.
A lot of times, people are scared to couchsurf because they wonder if it’s safe. I was nervous about it at first, too. There you are, in a new city, with all your stuff — in a stranger’s home. What if they try to murder you in your sleep? What if they steal your stuff? However, I’ve found that people who are willing to open their homes to strangers tend to be very open-minded people, and are also usually former travelers. They know what you are going through. They want to help. Couchsurfing is aware of this and take many steps to provide security. It offers various levels of verification and allows users to rate and leave comments on people’s profiles.
When I am looking for a Couchsurfing host, I use the following criteria:
  • There has to be a picture with the profile. This just shows me that it’s a real person.
  • The profile has to be filled out - It shows they are interested and involved. Most people aren’t going to spend the time to fill this out if they aren’t going to be comfortable with strangers in their home. If someone hasn’t bothered to fill out the profile, they probably don’t use the site and I simply move on.
  • They should have reviews - If other people have stayed with or have at least traveled with the host and had a good experience, you and your stuff will probably be fine. You might not get along with the host but at least you know they aren’t a creep. The more positive reviews, the better.
  • Verification helps - Couchsurfing offers different levels of verification. People can be verified by other travelers, with a mailing address, or with a credit card. Knowing that a person has been verified reduces the likelihood that they are going to be a crazy psycho killer. However, if someone isn’t verified but has a lot of reviews, that’s O.K. with me.
No matter what, you need to use your own judgment but I haven’t heard of any really bad couchsurfing experiences, besides the host being a jerk or a little anti-social. Usually, you end up talking with hosts over e-mail to get a feel for them and what they expect. If it doesn’t seem right, don’t do it! But once you couchsurf for the first time, you see that it really isn’t that bad. If you do it frequently, you’ll end up saving hundreds upon hundreds of dollars on accommodation and making friends around the world.


hostels are cheap accommodation
Hostels are another option for budget travelers. In hostels, rooms are dormitory-style with all the facilities shared. Many people think of hostels as a “young thing” and are not interested in sleeping in a dormitory. Yet people do not often realize that many hostels offer small rooms, singles, and doubles designed for solo travelers or couples. I have met people in hostels in their 50s and 60s. The myth they are dirty, gross places to stay designed for young people is wrong. Many hostels offer more amenities than hotels, the new ones are really clean, and as young people expect more comfort, hostels are cleaning up their ways. These aren’t the hostels you see in movies.
I think hostel dorms are the best value for budget travelers. The bigger the room, the cheaper the cost. Yes, you have to share a room with a lot of people, but if you are on a budget, it is your best way to save money. If you are traveling in a group, you could get one of the dorms for your entire group and not have to share with strangers.
While many hostels are geared toward young travelers, and set age limits, some of the bigger international chains such as YHA and Hostelling International focus more on older or group travelers. But I’ve seen families, tour groups, and older travelers in hostels all over the world. A hostel is really for anyone who wants to meet other travelers, regardless of age.
Hostels are safe, secure, and cheap. Don’t overlook them — even if you’re not part of the young backpacker set.
My favorite hostel booking website is Hostelworld. They have the best inventory, deals, and interface.

Home Exchange

a nice house
Another good way to get cheap accommodation is a home exchange program. This probably works best for older travelers who already own a home. These programs have been around for a long time but are growing in popularity due to good marketing and word-of-mouth on the Internet. Home exchanges are just like they sound — for a set amount of time, you swap homes with a family from another country. It’s a great way to live cheaply abroad.
Most people don’t do this because they worry about security — but remember that the other family is trusting you with their home, too. Sites that facilitate home exchanges usually have various levels of verification and security similar to Couchsurfing. Families talk to each other over phone and e-mail, and there’s no commitment if you find that it’s not right for you. Most people who do this are like-minded, so the chances of something going wrong are slim. Moreover, the family sends a few people to check up on you when you arrive. You can get all the comforts of home (hot water, laundry, etc.) while in another city, without paying for it.
For more information on home exchange, check out Home Exchange. This website was featured in the movie “The Holiday,” which did a lot to alleviate people’s fears over home exchange and bring this travel option into the mainstream. Some of the other home exchange websites are: Seniors Home Exchange, IHEN, and Home for Exchange.
If swapping homes isn’t your thing, then consider house-sitting as an alternative. In exchange for watching and cleaning someone’s home while they are away, you’ll get a place to stay in the area you are visiting. Good house-sitting sites include: Mind My HouseHouse CarersLuxury House Sitting

Short Term Rentals

apartment rentals is a good form cheap accommodation
Similar to home exchanges, rentals allow people to stay in furnished apartments while traveling. These apartments can sometimes be cheaper than hotels and provide many more amenities. They are great if you plan to spend a week or more in one place. You’ll get all the comforts of home without spending a fortune.
You can find a lot of rentals in Europe and Australia, where apartments tend to be rented on a week-by-week basis. These apartments are a nice bridge between a hostel and hotel, though they can get a bit expensive if you are a solo traveler. They are roughly double the cost (if not more) than a hostel dorm room. However, if you are part of a group or a couple and are looking for a respite from the dorms and hordes of travelers but don’t want a hotel room, this is your ideal accommodation option. Another reason to use this method? You get a kitchen, allowing you to cook and reduce your food costs.
My favorite rental websites are:

Farm Stays

Want to live on a farm but not work like you would with WWOOFing? Try a farm stay. Farm stays allow you to stay on working farms, learn how a farm works, possibly get involved in the workings of the farm (milk that cow!), and enjoy a number of organized outdoor activities. Facilities range from basic camping to luxury rooms depending on the farm, but in general it’s like you’re staying at a bed and breakfast. Prices vary widely depending on where you are in the world but generally, expect to pay the price of a budget hotel (so at least $40 USD per night).
Here’s a list of resources to find a farm stay:

Monastery Stays

Want something totally off the beaten track? Stay in a monastery. Accommodation in these monasteries is often very spartan, containing no more than a bed and desk, with simple meals prepared by the monks and nuns. Monasteries are very family-friendly and quiet (most also have curfews). While many monasteries cost at least $50 USD a night per person (many have dorms for half that price), most simply ask for donations or are free, making them an amazing budget option too.
Resources for finding a monastery stay:
The next time you head out on the road, consider one these options to lower your accommodation costs. Get out of the hotel mindset! They will help you reduce your expenses, freeing up more money so you can do activities, eat out, drink more, and overall, experience the destination you saved so long to visit.

Engineers Week Right Around the Corner, how to help - thanks to IEEE

Engineers Week Is Right Around the Corner

Discover ways to make a difference all week long

 15 January 2014
Image: IEEE
U.S. National Engineers Week will once again bring together thousands of students and professionals, this year around the theme of “Let’s Make a Difference.” From 16 to 22 February, participants can get involved in activities around the country that benefit humanity, such as developing apps for charitable organizations or introducing children to science and technology through mentoring and setting up museum exhibits.
IEEE-USA, in partnership with DuPont—a global science company whose priorities are in the area of biotechnology products for agriculture, advanced materials, and industrial biosciences—is helping to sponsor Engineers Week to showcase the many ways technology can improve the world.
In this, IEEE plays a huge role. “We have so many diverse and talented members, but a lot of people don’t realize that we’re more than the letters in our name,” says IEEE Fellow Karen Panetta, IEEE-USA vice president for communications and public awareness. “It’s important that we get out the message that IEEE members work in all technologies.”
In particular, Panetta would like to showcase more of the work IEEE members do in biomedicine, which is especially popular with women because, she notes, they see the social impact it can make.
“Many don’t realize the underlying foundations of biomedicine are electrical and computer engineering, including signal processing and image processing, coupled to an understanding of how to build devices,” she says.
Moreover she’d like the week to be a call to action for IEEE members to use their talents to benefit others.
IEEE-USA is sponsoring an apps competition that begins on 18 February. App-E-Featis designed to match members with humanitarian organizations to develop mobile apps for a cause. The effort is IEEE’s contribution to the Clinton Global Initiative(CGI), whose mission is to create and implement innovative solutions to the world's most pressing problems. The contest will run through 19 May, and winners will receive an iPad Air. The opportunity to get involved with App-E-Feat will continue to be promoted through CGI throughout 2014. 
“With the Clinton initiative, we’re working with an organization that has its hands on the pulse of humanitarian efforts,” says Panetta, who came up with the idea behind the App-E-Feat project. “Nonprofits don’t really have access to the latest technology, but we do.
“We’re going to create a powerful synergy that’s never been seen before between such an organization and IEEE,” she says.
IEEE-USA and DuPont are also teaming up as presenting sponsors of Discover Engineering Family Day. The event introduces children ages 4 to 12 to engineering, showing them the importance of technological literacy. It will be held on 22 February in Washington, D.C., at the National Building Museum.  
For the past three years, Family Day has attracted on average some 10 000 students, teachers, and parents to the museum and its design, architecture, and engineering exhibits, making it one of the largest engineering-focused events in the United States.
The Future City National Competition, a six-month long contest for U.S. middle school students to design cities of the future, will conclude in Washington, D.C., on 18 February. Interest in this competition has grown to about 40 000 participants around the country. IEEE-USA sponsors the national third-place award and the Best Communications System award, which awards the team with the most strategic communications system that is both efficient and accurate.
The National Engineers Week Foundation—the main organizers of EWeek—recently changed its name to DiscoverE and unveiled a new website with a host of resources for those interested in promoting learning about engineering.
The website includes the programs held during Engineers Week, as well as during the year. One EWeek program, for example, is Girl Day, which introduces girls to engineering by providing them with mentors. It will be held 20 February. Other DiscoverE programs include the online Global Marathon “For, By, and About Women in Engineering and Technology,” to be held from 5 to 7 March, and theDiscoverE Educator Recognition Awards, in April, which will recognize middle and high school teachers who inspire their students to study science and engineering.
To participate during EWeek in your area, here are a few things you can do:
  • Find out what your local section is doing and see how you can contribute.
  • Make an engineering-related presentation at your local school, club, or library.
  • Volunteer to be a judge in a regional final of the Future City Competition.
  • Serve as a judge at the Future City National Finals in Washington, D.C.
  • Lend your expertise to develop an app with App-E-Feat.
  • Check out the ideas on the new site, which include recommendations for trips with an engineering focus that can be taken around the United States.
“Engineers Week is a fitting opportunity to collaborate and highlight the role engineers play in creating sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer, and healthier life for people everywhere,” says Karen Fletcher, DuPont’s chief engineer and vice president of facility services and real estate. She sees the event as an opportunity to celebrate the many accomplishments of engineers, the drivers of innovation not only at her company but also around the world.
