Silicon Photonics: A Game-Changer for AI and Data Management

By Dick Weisinger

Data management is the process of collecting, storing, processing, and analyzing data for various purposes, such as business intelligence, decision-making, and machine learning. Data management is becoming more challenging as the amount and complexity of data grows exponentially in the

Automation Transforms the Back-end of Semiconductor Manufacturing

By Dick Weisinger

Semiconductors are the brains of the digital economy, powering everything from smartphones to self-driving cars. But making these tiny chips is not easy. It involves two main steps: front-end and back-end. The front-end process creates the wafer, a thin slice

Silicon Photonics Could Revolutionize Data Centers and Moore’s Law

By Dick Weisinger

Silicon photonics is a technology that uses silicon as an optical medium to create photonic integrated circuits (PICs) that can transmit and process data using light. Silicon photonics has many advantages over conventional electronic circuits, such as lower power consumption,

TSMC’s Chip Dominance: A Blessing or a Curse?

By Dick Weisinger

The global semiconductor industry is undergoing a major transformation, as the demand for chips in various sectors such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence, 5G, and autonomous driving is soaring. However, the supply of chips is constrained by the limited manufacturing

AI Chips: AI-Targeted Massive Wafers Speed the Creation of Large Language Models

By Dick Weisinger

‘Wafer-scale engine‘ (WSE) – it is what Cerebras, a semiconductor manufacturer, calls the architecture of their massive GPU engine on a single ‘chip’. It is 56 times the size of the largest ‘standard’ GPU chip and packs 3000 times more
