In a world where Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) and Application Specific Standard Products (ASSPs) are dominating every conceivable application, greater attention is being applied to their long term reliability. These chips are being built on smaller lithographies, running at higher speeds, dissipating more power and toRead More

As the ASIC design is moving towards maskset creation and tapeout, the cost of design changes are increasing exponentially. It’s easier and cheaper to modify the ASIC design and even redo some of the chip architecture early the design stage. However it’s much more difficult and far more expensive afterRead More

Thanks to the $30 million investment made through government funding, the American Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is set to start a new program that will enable a significant cut down of costs for custom integrated circuits for specific tasks (ASIC).
The revolutionizing program will be called CRAFT

There are many methods employed in food preparations right from the Stone Age up till date, these methods have been increasingly evolving and getting better with time.
Food preparations started from burying food in the ground for the heat to cook it up, this goes on till the invention
