01-SoC architecture

A primer on mobile systems used for heterogeneous computing

       

In the mobile and embedded market, the design constraints of electronic products can sometimes be seen as tight and contradictory: the market demands higher performance yet lower power consumption, reductions in cost but shorter time-to-market. These constraints have created a trend for more specialized hardware designs that fit a particular application; if each task is […]

Imagination, TSMC IP platforms - SoC IP (0)

Imagination, TSMC collaborate on a wide range of IoT subsystems

     

If you look at the semiconductor landscape today, the number of companies that have the ability to design advanced SoCs is shrinking rapidly. Industry consolidation/verticalization and rising manufacturing costs are creating an environment where true differentiation is difficult to achieve using generic solutions. In addition, integrating high performance CPUs, GPUs, coherent fabrics and other hardware […]
