    It's surprising to realize that buyers of intellectual property (IP) blocks used in system-on-chip (SOC) designs may not be entirely aware of what they're getting and how it works. But that's one reason why software for IC design verification is gaining attention: to ensure that those blocks will work as intended, both internally and with other components. Another reason is time to market. SOC pro... View full abstract»

    On 7 May 2002, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, Rockville, Md.) formally heard the operator of an Ohio reactor report on the causes of a situation that could very nearly have led to a serious loss-of-coolant accident. The situation is now fairly well understood and can be considered isolated, but questions remain as to whether nuclear surveillance both by the NRC and plant operators is... View full abstract»

    3G is all about new services and content to keep the wireless party going. Like cable TV companies of yore, cellular operators today are awaiting the arrival of smashing new content to generate new streams of revenue as they build a new and expensive third-generation global network. Coming in two flavors (cdma2000 and UMTS/WCDMA), 3G technologies serve largely to protect the investment of their se... View full abstract»

    The US congress and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) should stop micromanaging so the industry, in time, can shake out, wake up, and begin growing again. The US telecommunications industry has been in critical condition for more than a year; some claim that even its industry leaders are at death's door. Almost one-third of a million people in the industry have lost their jobs in one yea... View full abstract»

    Despite all the talk about broadband, only about 7%, or 7.5 million, of US households subscribed to high-speed Internet access services as of last June, according to a February report issued by the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The situation is not much different elsewhere; only a few countries with much smaller populations report somewhat higher percentages. Lack of need is, one rea... View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 2002 , Page(s): 32 - 37
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (699 KB)  

    From high-speed transistor to sold-state lasers, IEEE Medal of Honor recipient Herbert Kroemer's theories have led to a wealth of semiconductor applications. His theory of heterostructures did not immediately have practical use, but it is at the root of today's CD and DVD players, cellphones and even laser pointers. For his work on heterostructures, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 20... View full abstract»
