The Shifting, Whispering Sands…

July 15, 2022 – The shifting, whispering sands of silicon never stay still as the market continues to move from general purpose chips to custom or semi-custom solutions. It’s happening everywhere and all the big platform names now have their own in-house chip design teams including Apple, Amazon, Facebook (Meta), Google, Microsoft and even Tesla.

Custom solutions give maximum performance and power efficiency with an optimum feature set tightly targeted at the end application. Apple and Google, for example, now have AI/ML accelerators in their chips, something they would still be waiting for if they used off-the-shelf solutions. It’s not just the big names of course and a lot of other companies are looking at how to reduce cost and increase performance by creating their own chips…itor and alarm systems…45MP…
