Semiconductors run and connect today’s technology-driven world, powering all the electronic systems and products around us. Critical to communication, entertainment, work, medical diagnoses, travel, socializing, and making new discoveries, these specialized chips are ubiquitous. And chip designs grow ever more sophisticated in order to power new generations of devices, computers, the Internet, and the cloud. To enable new applications and use cases – like the Internet of Things – semiconductor vendors have continually pushed the boundaries of their designs to accommodate new fabrication processes that make chips smaller, more power efficient (to make personal devices last longer), and able to pack more gates into smaller dies (to make them more powerful).
Given the evolution of past major advances in wireless-LAN technologies, it should come as no surprise that products based on the still-in-development IEEE 802.11ac standard are now appearing across the board, from residence to enterprise. Just as was the case with 802.11g and 802.11n, the standards-development process is now far enough along that the semiconductor community is shipping in volume, the Wi-Fi Alliance has been able to issue an initial interoperability specification, and system-vendor products offering up to 1.3 Gbps are now available at prices very close to those of 802.11n APs but with on the order of a 30% improvement in price/performance on a spectral-efficiency basis and from 100% to more than 200% in performance overall.

Today's technological innovation demands high performance coupled with low environmental impact. These dual requirements are driving components of the semiconductor industry which informs many global businesses and consumer lives.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is expanding in a dramatic way, bringing to question the issue of availability versus security, as security measures are having a difficult time keeping pace with the development of IoT devices. The introduction of more efficient semiconductors, coupled with revolutionary technology that allows semiconductors to store as well as process complex instructions, means that the IoT may be a more attractive target for hackers. IoT devices from healthcare and industrial systems (i.e., SCADA) could be the most at risk for significant service interruptions and may have secondary and/or tertiary effects on other industries.

Claudia Innes, Corporate Marketing Director for Fairchild Semiconductor, Inc. discusses their use of the SyberWorks Hosted e-Learning Solution to create a marketing-information portal to provide marketing and performance support for their sales staff, sales engineers, partners, and distributors in the power-supply segment.
Machine learning uses algorithms to build analytical models, helping computers “learn” from data. It can now be applied to huge quantities of data to create exciting new applications such as driverless cars.
This paper, based on presentations by SAS Data Scientist Wayne Thompson, introduces key machine learning concepts and describes SAS solutions that enable data scientists and other analytical professionals to perform machine learning at scale. It tells how a SAS customer is using digital images and machine learning techniques to reduce defects in the semiconductor manufacturing process.
PTC, the Product Development Company® today announced that Samsung Electronics Co., LTD (SEC), a leading digital products manufacturer of mobile phones, televisions, and semiconductors, has selected PTC Windchill as its digital product development data repository to manage an integrated BOM of mechanical, electrical and software data across its globally distributed product development environment. Windchill is the standard enterprise PLM solution at SEC because of its powerful, Web-based support of key product development processes on a single technology architecture and execution environment.
