Print’s role in Semiconductor IP Design
Print content continues its steady decline in our everyday lives. But what is the real impact on semiconductor IP designs?
Few semiconductor IP designers use print exclusively for the development of their System-on-Chips (SoC). But print still plays some role a part in the creation of complex chips. But for how much longer?
Maybe not much longer, according to a number of different perspectives that emerged this week:
- Shifting sands: Trends in embedded systems design – EETimes’s David Blaza puts a good face on the demise of the print version of Embedded.com But is it really a print vs. online question or an “general” embedded vs. “specific” embedded-application issue? The answer has implication for all general embedded pubs and conferences.
- What lies ahead for science and science writing? – 10th anniversary of MIT Graduate Program in Science Writing celebrates past, looks to future.
- Multimedia E-books: Immersive or Subversive? – Here’s a different perspective on the demise of print. Will those of us practiced in the art of text content even survive?
