What changes are happening in the semiconductor industry to enable the Internet of Things? What are some of the implications for System on Chip (SoC) architecture, semiconductor foundries, and electronic design automation (EDA) tools? And where will the jobs be created? In this talk, Steve will share some of the latest thinking from his work at Cadence in his current role in the IP Group, and previously the System Verification Group.
