Tech Visions

Predictions: Markets And Drivers
Jan 11, 2018
Looking forward, Lanza says that reinvention is crucial. “The semiconductor design ecosystem has proven time and again, without an assumption, it could predict the future. And yet it made possible the IoT, creating ubiquitous connectivity and the digital society where physical continuity and dimension are no longer important… It’s up to the semiconductor design ecosystem to set a path to respond, as it always has.”

Machine Learning’s Growing Divide
Jan 11, 2018
Lucio Lanza, managing director for Lanza techVentures, adds that “…with Moore’s Law breaking down, we should expect to see more single-task designed chips and generally a move to single instruction, multiple data (SIMD) and away from multiple instruction, multiple data (MIMD).”

Design Challenge

Video: Mike Noonan and Lucio Lanza

Lucio Lanza, an advisor to efabless, a marketplace and platform for community-engineered electronics, talks with Silego’s Mike Noonen about the efabless/Silego “Go Configure Design Challenge Series.” The challenge calls the global designer community to implement well-used functions using Silego’s configurable mixed-signal ICs with the efabless platform serving as the crowd source design platform.

DAC 2017 Pavilion Video: Simon Segars and Lucio Lanza

DAC 2017 Pavilion: Exploring the Connections Between the Digital World and Physical World. Arm CEO Simon Segars and Lucio Lanza engage in a far-reaching conversation about the Internet of Things and how the digital world will be connected with the physical world.[/

“I’ve known Lucio forever, or at least since we both went to work at Daisy Systems. Later, with Lucio as chairman and me as CEO, we ran and grew Veridicom, the first fingerprint authentication IC company. In the process, I came to appreciate his insight –– sometimes profound, even stunning –– into market and man. He has the best marketing mind I know. It was good to be negotiating from the same side of the table with him.

“If we’re telling tales out of school, a friend –– Phil Kaufman –– told me with glee about racing through Milan in Lucio’s Alpha Romeo Spider, with Lucio ‘kissing the bumper’ of the car ahead if it was annoying. Lucio will not confirm or deny.”
