    TSMC Arizona: a new scenario for why it was put there. Everyone keeps asking why TSMC decided to put a fab in Arizona. The most cynical explanation has been that...VLSIresearch has cited the pressure...to fix its supply-chain risk of having so much of its manufacturing concentrated in Taiwan, along with hot aspirations of China to integrate it. Another critical reason is the fact Arizona has the...of any state in the country, thanks to its government's close partnership with...A new one came to mind when I was puzzling over last weekend's coverage in Barron's about TSMC's poorly performing stock...

    DTCO: Why it was needed. Most of the time, new acronyms are simply marketing spins of something that already exists that catch on in the public discourse. Design Technology Co-Optimization is far more than that. DTCO has clearly displaced DFM, or Design For Manufacturing for good reason...Synopsys was one of the pioneers that jumped in with a solution that incorporated process profiles into EDA tools that comprehended manufacturing limitations that induced hot spots and warned designers so they could be fixed long before first-silicon...The problem with DFM is its inherent assumption that manufacturing can't be changed and so product engineers have to design for it. DTCO changes all of that by...
