Recovery In Flat-Panel Display Biz


The flat-panel display market is starting to recover after a period of oversupply and lackluster growth, fueled by new technologies as well as more people working from home. The flat-panel display market is complex. Several different technologies are at play, such as liquid-crystal displays (LCDs) for TV screens and other products, as well as organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) for smartph... » read more

Multitasking For Modern GPUs


Originally GPUs were all about one thing, 3D graphics, and specifically fill-rate. Creating 3D triangles, calculating their position, coloring them in, processing the right ones (thank you tile-based deferred rending), and outputting them to the screen. Nowadays GPUs need to do more – it’s called “compute.” Indeed, we’ve been talking about running this on low-power GPUs for a long ... » read more

Blocking Vs. Non-Blocking


By analyzing two flow control protocols – Single Threaded Tag (STT) and Multi-Threaded Non-Blocking – we describe a typical SoC employing the two protocols and evaluate their relative advantages and disadvantages. We evaluate the two protocols by experimentation with a representative digital TV (DTV) design and its derivatives, and then show you how one system is able to achieve better perf... » read more
