This article looks at some of the key architectural and implementation decisions Synopsys has made in developing a version of its HS series of licensable processor cores to serve the embedded Linux market
Moving to a finFET process means considering process readiness, cost and yield, as well as the traditional power, performance and area advantages
Will Ethernet become the dominant interconnect for automotive applications? A look at the market trends and standards, and how to use Ethernet IP and virtual-prototyping solutions in automotive applications.
How to use PCIe in low-power SoCs by swapping the standard PCIe PHY for M-PCIe, defined by MIPI for mobile use
The configurability of processor IP such as Synopsys' ARC HS family gives designers the option to optimise for power, performance or a combination of both.
Mobile and networking platforms need high bandwidth, low power consumption, and small footprint. These needs drove standards, such as LPDDR4, Wide I/O 2 and Hybrid Memory Cube.
The first of a series of seven articles describing the key details of the USB 3.0 protocol.
This article describes various non-volatile memory (NVM) intellectual property (IP) alternatives with specific reference to their integration within system-on-chip designs targeting the 65nm process node and below. The article considers many of the strengths and vulnerabilities of these IP options, and then describes the tests that must be undertaken to ensure their long-term reliability, particularly [...]
New open software platforms can dramatically advance the way consumers interact with the Internet via their televisions and an expanding array of TV-like mobile devices. Ultimately consumers will be able to access websites that are fully optimized for the TV platform. Today, this experience is primarily delivered via widgets—containerized web pages or information portals that [...]
The GENIVI Alliance is already accelerating cross-industry standards development only two years since its formation, says Joel Hoffmann.
