September 2016 – CEVA announced its new XM-6 vision processor yesterday (27th Sept) and will reveal details at today’s Linley Microprocessor conference in Santa Clara. As one of the companies leading the race to provide power-efficient vision processing specifically aimed at the mobile and embedded markets (as opposed to repurposing power-hungry GPUs for workstation and [...]

 June 2015 – The Linley group held their first event focusing on IOT and the issues and breakthroughs in the technology and the market. The three topics addressed by the conferne were processor design for IOT applications, security at the IP and product level and finally the key to battery operated mobile design energy efficiency. [...]

January 2014, At the annual Data Center Conference held by the Linley Group, the focus was on the semiconductors being used in the current solutions and there approach to addressing the two main issues of scale-out for the data center and efficiency. Efficiency is a combination of power, utilization, throughput, and code/data optimization for the [...]

October 2013 – The opening session of the Linley Tech Processor event is usually on multi-core architectures. This year, it was the same, with the exception that the bandwagon for multi-core was all ARM 64 bit. Broadcom, Freescale, Cavium, and Synopsys all launched products, tools and IP for supporting the ARM64 ecosystem. This system is [...]

February 6, 2013 – The Linley Data Center conference relocated to the Hyatt in Santa Clara for this year’s event focusing on interconnect/networking and power. The keys were the advances in high speed interconnect as driven by the cloud and software defines networking, as well as optimizing performance/power for the growing data centers & servers. [...]

February 5, 2013 – At the Linley Data Center Conference held in San Jose earlier this month, we had a chance to meeting the Ryan Baxter of Micron to discuss their new NVDIMM module that is targeted at enterprise servers. To bring higher reliability to the enterprise marketplace, the NVDIMM product looks like an RDIMM [...]

October 2012 – At the Linley networking and processor event, we had a chance to meet with Micron Technologies and discuss their high performance Networking DRAM solutions. These memories feature a reduced latency for fast random access, based on using a different internal design than from standard DRAM. The turnaround time on a data access [...]

 April 20, 2011 – San Jose, CA – At the Linley Group Mobile Processor Conference, the discussion was on the directions and types of processors being created for the mobile space. The mobile space has greatly changed from the time of voice communication era for basic cell phones with Laptops as the dominant mobile technologies. [...]
