The Long ARM of Intel

by Amelia Dalton

In this week's Fish Fry, I look at Intel's ever-expanding reach into the world of electronic design. I interview Jarrod Siket about Netronome's collaboration with Intel and I also investigate the recent announcement that Intel and Xilinx will be funding R&D at EDA startup Oasys Design Systems. This week I also chat with Tom DeSchutter of Synopsys about what ARM's big.LITTLE is all about and how software can help with energy efficiency in mobile designs.

Did you know that a company in Dubai is offering push button pizza delivery? Its true! Where were they during my senior year thesis? Check out this week's Fish Fry to learn more.

In this week's Fish Fry I check two recent announcements from Intel including their investment in EDA Start-up Oasys Design Systems and their collaboration with Netronome. Also this week, I interview Tom De Schutter of Synopsys about ARM's unique big.LITTLE architecture and how software can can help with energy efficiency and performance in mobile designs. I'm taking a poll - who do you think is going to attempt to buy out Oasys Design Systems? Intel? Mentor Graphics? Xilinx? Cadence? Let me know what you think about this announcement.

Hi Amelia,

I thought you were in Colorado and would have wanted the magnet pizza gizmo service there before Si Valley.

A few of my worst / most interesting projects were from undergrad -
http://bit.ly/HKSelH - A matrix display that I soldered. I had a group who 'helped' me solder it and burnt out two adjacent wires for every wire they soldered, sending me in 'pilgrims progress in reverse'.

Also, I did not get my nerdy give away for the week of -http://www.eejournal.com/archives/articles/20120224-fishfry/...
