The Thermal Challenges of Moore’s Law: Part 1

Semiconductor Engineering editor in chief Ed Sperling spoke with Steven Woo, Rambus fellow and distinguished inventor, about the relationship between Moore’s Law, Dennard scaling and thermal challenges. As Woo notes, there is a “tug of war” between the benefits that Moore’s Law provides and the breakdown of Dennard scaling in 2005. “Systems now need to […]

Memory Systems for AI: Part 1

Written by Steven Woo for Rambus Press There has been quite a lot of recent news about domain-specific processors that are being designed for the artificial intelligence (AI) market. Interestingly, many of the techniques used today in modern AI chips and applications have actually been around for several decades. However, neural networks didn’t really take […]

Are Tried and True Encryption Standards Going by the Wayside?

Michael Cobb, certified information systems security professional – information systems security architecture professional (CISSP – ISSAP), is regarded as a top security expert and is a published author of many security papers. In his most recent piece, he writes how the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is preparing to defend against quantum attacks.  […]

TIRIAS Research analyzes Rambus’ memory and high-speed interfaces strategy

Jim McGregor, principal analyst at TIRIAS Research, recently spoke with Gary Hilson of the EE Times about Rambus’ 56G SerDes PHY. More specifically, the analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and (DSP) architecture of Rambus’ 56G SerDes PHY is designed meet the long-reach backplane requirements for the industry transition to 400 GB Ethernet applications. In practical terms, this […]

PC World: Microsoft’s cool quantum computing plan embraces cryogenic memory

PC World’s Agam Shah reports that Microsoft is working with Rambus to develop and build prototype computers with memory subsystems that can be cooled at cryogenic temperatures, typically below minus 180 degrees Celsius or minus 292 degrees Fahrenheit. “Cryogenics goes hand in hand with quantum computers, which promise to be significantly faster than today’s PCs […]

The evolution of augmented reality (AR)

Wearable augmented reality (AR) devices are still at a relatively nascent stage. As the technology progresses, augmented reality will likely face a number of obstacles, including evolving social mores, strict adherence to Moore’s Law and the challenge of maintaining a seamless user experience. According to Rambus Fellow Dr. David G. Stork, it is difficult to […]

Rambus is at DesignCon 2016

The DesignCon 2016 expo kicked off on January 20th in Santa Clara. Rambus was at booth #835, showcasing its R+™ enhanced standard serial link and memory IP core solutions, along with tools for server, mobile and networking applications. Rambus also hosted a full-day training session. The workshop explored industry trends and challenges including the shifting bottlenecks in […]

Moore’s Law accelerates smart sensor evolution

Named after Intel co-founder Gordon E. Moore, Moore’s Law observes that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years. According to Intel, the continuation of Moore’s Law means the rate of progress in the semiconductor space will far surpass that of nearly all other industries. In fact, the future […]
