As the accelerating market of SoCs inevitably means a faster rate of adoption, system level designers are also faced with fragmenting markets, with new standards adopted and with multiple types of complex requirements in a system. The integration of IP (Intellectual Property) can be a boon, but there are caveats, as Caroline Hayes, Senior Editor reports.

The quadrupling of resolution in 4k video opens up broadcast, gaming and other sectors to a world of mobility via the ubiquitous smartphone. By Caroline Hayes, Senior Editor.
Graphics processing is no longer a case of monochrome or color, but shading to add depth in computer games, digital signage or medical equipment.
System Design Enablement (SDE) will provide tools, design content, and services for the development of whole systems or end products.
At advanced technology nodes (40nm and below), the number of options that a system-on-chip (SoC) designer faces is exploding. Choosing the correct combination of these options can have a dramatic impact on the quality, performance, cost and schedule of the final SoC.
The new ARM suite addresses the most complex challenges associated with SoC configurability and assembly while reducing time to market.
Massively parallel architecture scales linearly beyond 10M instances while improving power, performance and area.
Advanced Formal Verification Technology Platform from OneSpin Used by Partner Companies in Range of New, Unique Verification Solutions.

An interconnect, also referred to as a bus matrix or fabric, serves as the communication hub of multiple intellectual property (IP) cores inside a system on chip (SoC). As the capacity of today’s SoCs continues to increase dramatically…
Finding the optimal configuration options that meet the requirements of a particular system requires complementary design tools to enable the designer to rapidly explore and correlate trade-offs in performance, power, and area (PPA).
The recent advent of low-cost cluster management offerings have allowed IT organizations to adopt failover techniques for a variety of mission-critical systems, including the ENOVIA Synchronicity DesignSync Design Data Management (DDM) product from Dassault Systèmes. This paper provides a detailed example developed with a current semiconductor customer.
When templates, methodologies and verification IP components were integrated, suddenly simulation speed took a nosedive. Here’s why.
A new method for dramatically reducing CPU and RAM resource requirements.
