For more than 30 years, Microprocessor Report (MPR) has been the industry's go-to source for the latest microprocessor news. This subscriber-only publication covers a broad range of semiconductor topics. We publish an average of three new articles per week, each covering a new product, technology, or trend.
Our core coverage is of processors and SoCs for servers, PCs, supercomputers (HPC), smartphones, wearables, embedded systems, IoT devices, communications and networking equipment, and advanced automotive applications. We also cover licensable and open-source cores for CPU, DSP, graphics, and other functions. Many of our recent articles cover AI accelerators for cloud, edge, automotive, mobile, and IoT.
Deep Insight and In-Depth Analysis
Today's complex SoCs contain a variety of functions beyond the processor, so our coverage extends to wired and wireless communications protocols such as 5G, LTE, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, PON, PCI Express, and InfiniBand. We also cover special-purpose chips such as search engines, fabrics, silicon photonics, FPGAs, PHYs, cellular RF, high-bandwidth memory, and new memories such as Optane and NRAM.
We often write about new companies, new technologies, and new design approaches to keep our subscribers up to date on trends. We are particularly interested in new technologies for SoC design and manufacturing. We also keep an eye on mergers and acquisitions, and we use our in-house market-share data to highlight shifts in the market.

Gate-All-Around Cranks Up Logic SpeedNanosheet transistors are superior to FinFETs for logic transistors, offering an adjustable gate width, superior electrostatic characteristics, and better channel-thickness uniformity as well as faster switching speed. They have drawbacks for SRAM and I/O transistors, however.
Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 Uses 8+ Gen 1 DieQualcomm announced a Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 that reuses the premium Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 die with altered specs. Market conditions left the company with excess inventory that it’s moving into the midpremium market.
Axiado Rethinks Server Security, ControlAxiado combined server security and management functions into a single chip to which it added AI acceleration to thwart ransomware.
AI Gold Rush Also Boosts NetworkingOne of the biggest beneficiaries of California’s 1849 gold rush wasn’t a miner, but Levi Strauss, who famously sold the miners clothing.
Broadcom Retargets Jericho at AI ClustersBroadcom is challenging the conventional topology linking AI engines in training supercomputers/clusters, offering a version of its Jericho Ethernet switch chip set for AI.
