A Comparison Of Embedded Non-Volatile Memory Technologies And Their Applications

With complexity of SOCs growing and time to market cycles shortening, designers need to have an arsenal of tricks to deliver highly differentiated products to market quickly. The arsenal may include SystemC, EDA tools to achieve a faster timing closure, and IP from high speed I/Os to memories. The most pervasive memory IPs are SRAM and ROM. Less pervasive memory IPs include non-volatile memory ... » read more

ROM Code First

By Achim Nohl Finally, nine months after the next-generation SoC project was kicked off, the first prototype board has finally arrived! There are just six months left to get Android and Linux up and running. Because Android should take full advantage of the latest hardware additions, let’s make sure we get it ported as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, it’s not that easy. Before you c... » read more
