Fixed-Point And Floating-Point FMCW Radar Signal Processing With Tensilica DSPs

Automotive Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) applications are increasingly demanding radar modules with better capability and performance. These applications require sophisticated radar processing algorithms and powerful Digital Signal Processors (DSPs) to run them. Because these embedded systems have limited power and cost budgets, the DSP’s Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) needs t... » read more

Tensilica DSPs Support In Eigen Library

Eigen is a high-level C++ library of template headers for linear algebra, matrix and vector operations, geometrical transformations, numerical solvers, and related algorithms. Eigen is open-source software licensed under the Mozilla Public License 2.0 (MPL2). Eigen is implemented using the expression templates metaprogramming technique, meaning it builds expression trees at compile time... » read more

Accelerate The Algorithm To Silicon Development With Stratus HLS

Growth in demand for artificial intelligence (AI) and digital signal processing (DSP) applications, coupled with advances in semiconductor process technology, drives increasingly denser SoCs. These complex SoCs further challenge the design team’s ability to meet performance, power, and area (PPA) goals within tight time-to-market windows. We need automated and targeted solutions that efficien... » read more

Tensilica DSP Code Generation Toolbox With MATLAB/Simulink

MATLAB and Simulink are widely used for modeling and simulating real-time dynamical systems. To verify the performance of MATLAB/Simulink models of these systems in a real-time application, MATLAB/Simulink models are converted to embedded C code and executed on a target processor or its equivalent Instruction Set Simulator (ISS). To deploy the generated C code in a processor, the genera... » read more

AI-Driven Big Data Analytics Enables Actionable Intelligence, Improving SoC Design Productivity

As the latest systems on chip (SoCs) grow in size and complexity, a vast amount of design data is generated during verification and implementation. Design data is business critical and, with the proliferation of artificial intelligence (AI) use in chip design, provides designers an opportunity to carry forward learnings and insights with every new design. To achieve first-pass success deliverin... » read more

Ensuring Data Integrity And Performance Of High-Speed Data Transmission

In key electronics applications such as data centers, automotive, and 5G, the data speed and volume are increasing at an exponential rate. Data centers require data transmission (Figure 1) as high as 112Gbps, which can be achieved only using PAM4 signaling. The automotive industry is dealing with the challenges of transferring data between various electronic control units (ECUs) at a very high ... » read more

Efficient Verification Of Mixed-Signal Series IP Using UVM

Interface IP are an integral part of systems-on-chips (SoC) that include mobile, automotive, or networking applications and are primarily used for transmitting data over a physical medium between a host and device. The mixed-signal nature of the IP makes verification a challenging task, requiring special considerations for digital and analog sections. This paper describes a robust mixed-signal ... » read more
