White Papers

C-V2X Drives Intelligent Transportation
This white paper describes the benefits that cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology will provide by enabling vehicles to communicate directly with each other (V2V), transportation infrastructure (V2I), and network-connected service providers (V2N).
In-Memory Acceleration for Big Data
Standard CPUs can easily perform complex calculations on small datasets, but they struggle to handle larger datasets, particularly for simple tasks such as search. GSI Technology has created a new type of processor that combines memory and compute units on a single chip.
Certus-NX Innovates General-Purpose FPGAs
Certus-NX is the second product in Lattice's Nexus family, bringing the benefits of FD-SOI to a broader range of applications. It is well suited for many applications including smart home, IoT, consumer networking, and motor control.
Machine Learning Moves to the Edge
Embedded systems at the edge of the network will increasingly use machine learning (ML) to deliver new capabilities. Even as ML becomes more important, these new capabilities must be added without breaking the BOM cost and power budgets of existing products.  SiMa.ai is a new company developing a product to fit these requirements.

Cortex-R82 Brings Linux to SSDs
Arm’s first 64-bit Cortex-R adds a memory-management unit for high-level operating systems, enabling computational-storage drives to run Linux. It inherits classic real-time features from the predecessor Cortex-R8.
IBM z15: A Modern Mainframe Chip
The z15 is IBM’s next-generation Z-series processor for mainframes, operating at a 5.2GHz base frequency. Relative to the z14, the company added two CPU cores and a handful of on-die accelerators.
Editorial: Nvidia Grabs Arm for AI
Nvidia aims to become the world’s leading computing company with its $40 billion acquisition of Arm, but the mismatch between the two businesses will make it a challenge to pull off.

Quantum Computing Seeks Supremacy
Google, IBM, Intel, Microsoft and other companies are pushing the frontiers of quantum computing, but researchers must reduce the qubit error rate before quantum processors can perform useful tasks.
Lightmatter Realizes Photonic AI
Lightmatter emerged from stealth by presenting details of its Mars test chip. The 3D chip stacks photonic and digital die, and it shows that a complete product could quickly follow.
Ambiq Doubles CPU Frequency
The Apollo 4 microcontroller delivers industry-leading energy efficiency while adding a graphics subsystem. Ambiq’s new part also adds location support to its low-power Bluetooth subsystem.
