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.[/

“Lucio has directly contributed to PDF’s growth from a small start-up to a successful publicly traded company. He has foreseen necessary technical and business changes in our industry that result from its technical evolution. At PDF, Lucio was instrumental in PDF’s decision to focus on electrical characterization necessary to address the parametric and systematic defect challenges in deep sub-micron technology. This technology formed the foundation that has enabled PDF’s growth over the past 15 years.

“... More than just his venture capital investment, Lucio’s personal long-term commitment to founders whom he believes can drive change required in our industry has had a lasting impact on both the EDA industry and semiconductor industry at large.”
