Like many other businesses, the Japanese heavyweight is under significant financial pressure thanks to the covid-19 pandemic, but its long track record of leveraging its IP assets could prove a saving grace
Wednesday May 27, 2020 / 2:00 p.m. ET Hosted By: Sinjin Dixon-Warren The power electronics industry is in a period of transition. For many years silicon-based devices dominated the industry, with conventional Si MOSFET transistors being used for lower power and intermediate frequency, with super
With waveform and protocol testing essential to investigating memory technology patents for evidence of use, TechInsights’ Martin Bijman and Neil MacLeod take a closer look at the portfolios of the top NAND patent owners to determine how different types of analysis can support different types of
A look inside YMTC’s second-generation 3D-NAND technology, which uses “Xtacking” to bond the peripheral circuitry face-to-face with the memory array instead of alongside. As first published in Semiconductor Digest.
Contributed Author: Sinjin Dixon-Warren The market for Silicon Carbide (SiC) power transistors is expected to grow considerably over the coming years. SiC power transistors have several advantages over traditional silicon-based devices, including improved performance in high-temperature, high
April 29 - 12:00-1:30 pm (ET) – Live webinar, "Patent Portfolio Management: Effective Strategies and Best Practices in 2020", hosted by The Knowledge Group. Key topics include: Patent Portfolio Management Trends and Developments, The Essentials of an Effective Patent Portfolio Management Program
There have never been so many IP tools and technology aides on the market, but how do you decide which ones are going to help your business? Martin Bijman of TechInsights explains.
The Snapdragon 865 platform is Qualcomm's most advanced 5G chipset to date with support for 5G, sub-6, mmWave and LTE. 4G/5G dynamic spectrum sharing, will enable "operators to accelerate 5G deployments by using their existing 4G spectrum holdings to deliver both 4G & 5G services dynamically." A key
Is the Apple A12Z bionic SoC just the A12X renamed, with an enabled GPU core? When we first got the Apple iPad Pro 2020 A2068 in our labs, this was the first thing we wanted to know. What is the A12Z? When we saw the A12Z, there was visually no difference between it and the A12X, so we dug further
TechInsights has been executing a business continuity plan since early February. As a global business, we first took measures in Asia and quickly cascaded those measures to our European and North American offices. My responsibilities are in this order 1) my colleagues and 2) our customers. Our
Last year, Samsung announced the introduction of EUV into their 7LPP process used in the Exynos 9825. Through analysis of the part, we found little difference between their 7LPP process in the 9825 and their 8LPP process in the Exynos 9820. Now, we are excited to say that we have found Samsung’s
