What’s So Important About Processor Extensibility?


While the ability to extend a processor is nothing new, market dynamics are forcing a growing percentage of the industry to consider it a necessary part of their product innovation. From small IoT functions to massive data centers and artificial intelligence, the need to create an optimized processing platform is often the only way to get more performance or lower power out of the silicon area ... » read more

Optimizing DDR Memory Subsystem Efficiency


This whitepaper applies virtual prototyping tools and best practice techniques to optimize the DDR memory subsystem configuration for a specific SoC application. Starting from a hypothetical Mobile Application Processor design, we will illustrate step-by step how to optimize: Address mapping Clock frequency Quality of Service (QoS) To read more, click here. » read more
