Design And Security Challenges for VR


Virtual reality is no longer just for gamers, and as this technology is deployed in everything from health care to industrial training, the requirements for processing more data faster over a high-speed connection are growing. Designing these devices continues to be a study in contradictions. They must be extremely low power, with a small enough batteries to make them comfortable to wear. Bu... » read more

The MCU Dilemma


The humble microcontroller is getting squeezed on all sides. While most of the semiconductor industry has been able to take advantage of Moore's Law, the MCU market has faltered because flash memory does not scale beyond 40nm. At the same time, new capabilities such as voice activation and richer sensor networks are requiring inference engines to be integrated for some markets. In others, re... » read more

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
