“The industry heated up this week as we in the United States prepared to say goodbye to summer and usher in the Labor Day holiday weekend. Hot Chips, Hot Interconnects, and hotheads at Nvision made this last week in August a memorable one.
Outsourcing was one of the topics that steamed attendees at Hot Chips this week. As EDN’s Ron Wilson reported, as outsourcing matures, US job loses aren’t the only problems that have emerged. As Ron wrote in his blog, there are other problems emerging as well, that impact not just designers but the outcome of designs, and quite possibly the competitiveness of the companies that outsourced the work in the first place. Also discussed at the event were memory coherency over networks, IBM’s advice on low-power processor design, and the hype that’s growing around photovoltaic power generation.”
