A look at three design challenges for USB Type-C: implementing two SuperSpeed datapaths on a reversible connector; partitioning the design to support multiple USB Type-C variants; and partitioning the management software.
A look at USB 3.1, which offers data rates of up to 10Gbit/s, and the way that the USB 3.1 protocol has changed to support this rate.
An analysis of what it takes to build true random number generators that can provide a strong cryptographic basis for systems security, especially for IoT devices.
A quick look at Bluetooth Smart and how it can be used to provide network connections in certain classes of IoT application.
How to leverage a simpler, standardized approach to describing generic and reusable stimulus sequences for verification IP.
Many IoT applications have a very strict energy budget. SoC designers targeting the IoT have to trade off providing the features that the market demands with the power budget the applications demand. What are their options?
The arrival of USB Type C provides an opportunity for SoC design teams with opportunities to provide customers with significant cost savings. Integrated IP will help the process.
Achieving IoT security means addressing every link in the chain, from the quality of your application code to embedding a root of trust in the hardware.
Verification IP can help verify that memory-controller implementations meet standards; test an implementation against specific memories; and drive traffic for SoC verification and power analysis. Here's how to choose it.
Implementing the reversible connector of USB Type-C demands a rethink of the PHY architecture to achieve the most cost-effective IP solution
