Quantifying the Value of On-Chip Debug


White paper authored by Semico Research, quantifies the benefits of using on-chip debug and monitoring technology, specifically UltraSoc's technology. Rising design complexityIn the last several years, contemporary SoCs (system-on-a-chip) have become increasingly complex. They now consist of 100s of millions of gates, 100 or more discrete semiconductor intellectual property (SIP) blocks, hi... » read more

ISO26262: The Case for Embedded Analytics in Automotive (updated: V.4.0)


From advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) to a new generation of robots and medical systems, we are seeing an explosion in the development of cyber-physical systems. Because these systems use advanced software to interact with the physical world, safety is a paramount issue but one that is reflected in many industries by the use of safety standards based on a philosophy of risk assessme... » read more

Tail End Latency And Server Debug


The rise of the heterogeneous multicore processor has enabled a massive increase in the ability of data centers to deliver advanced services to billions of users worldwide. But the complexity that is now possible has made the optimization of these services difficult to achieve. Providers of heterogeneous multicore SoCs have an opportunity to deliver the tools to make optimization of highly dist... » read more

Tail End Latency And Server Debug


In the drive to deliver highly scalable services that meet the demands of mobile users, enterprises and, increasingly, the Internet of things, the software underpinning them has become incredibly complex. At the same time, the systems that run these complex workloads have become prone to troublesome and often baffling performance issues. Response times measured over the course of millions of... » read more
