TowerJazz, the global specialty foundry leader, today announced it is
offering a series of webinars to familiarize existing and potential
customers with the design and technical support available to maximize
their product performance while minimizing cost. The first webinar that
is already available online for TowerJazz’s existing customers is
"SBC18H3 Online PDK training" and is based on frequently asked questions
by TowerJazz customers. The tutorial focuses on TowerJazz’s SBC18H3
(270GHz SiGe BiCMOS) PDK (Process Design Kit). The webinar is hosted by
Dr. Samir Chaudhry, TowerJazz’s Director of Design Enablement, in the
form of streaming slides and video capture of a live PDK session, along
with audio and visual guidance. The training is targeted for both
existing and new designers and layout engineers of TowerJazz's SiGe
BiCMOS technologies and is available to anyone with access to the
SBC18H3 PDK on TowerJazz's portal.
The SBC18H3 training session introduces the technology platform, reviews
PDK installation procedures, devices such as SiGe NPNs, MOSFETs,
resistors, capacitors, and inductors are elucidated in significant
detail, and a "Tips and Tricks" slide summarizes the recommended use of
the device for optimum performance. The second section of the training
focuses on optimization of the design for yield. Advanced statistical
modeling tools unique to TowerJazz's PDKs such as Monte Carlo, X-Sigma,
and wafer specific modeling tools are introduced, focusing on "why, when
and how" a designer should use these tools. Training concludes with
instructions on how to run the final verification on a design for
manufacturing rules with a focus on meeting density requirements unique
to analog intensive designs.
The next webinar in the series will be focused on TowerJazz’s ESD
offering and will be hosted on August 7, 2014 by Dr. Efraim Aharoni,
Principal Engineer, ESD Team Leader, and Mr. Roda Kanawati, ESD Expert
and Power Management Device Engineer, for one hour including
presentations and a Q&A session. The target of this session is to
introduce to the design community the rich ESD offering provided by
TowerJazz which enables easy and safe design for ESD production and the
flexibility required for specific needs. It covers ESD/LU-related
qualification methodology, ESD guidelines to designers, ESD device
characterization, and verification tools. Special emphasis is placed on
PDK ESD elements such as parameterized cells, design rules, models, and
protection schemes required for safe design for ESD and short time to
market. In addition, the implementation of Programmable Electronic Rule
Check (PERC) for ESD is described.
Dr. Aharoni will focus on TowerJazz’s general ESD offering while Mr.
Kanawati will describe the ESD solutions available for Power Management
design. To register for this webinar or find out about future sessions,

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos.
