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,

Following the live event, an archived version of the webinar will be
available on the TowerJazz website.

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered.

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively.

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Demmer, VP of Engineering at Jut, will discuss how this can...

The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time. Traditional tools are starting to show cracks because they were not designed for this level of application portability. Now is the time to look at new ways to deploy and manage applications at scale.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Brian “Redbeard” Harrington, a principal architect at CoreOS, will examine how CoreOS helps teams run in production. Attende...

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional?
In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of pro...
