“Given the complexity of current SoC designs, subsystems offer the advantage of reducing the overall number of IP blocks that an SoC manufacturer has to evaluate, assemble and verify,” said Frank Ferro, director of product marketing at Sonics…

SoC design continues to challenge semiconductor and system companies in their pursuit to create a better user experience for a wide range of products. Given this, I was pleasantly surprised to see that two of the “Ten technologies that will change the world in 2013,” according to EETimes (December 2012 issue) were SoC-related.

Just how important are IP subsystems to complex SoC designs? It appears much more than you may have thought just a few months ago.
With the emergence of SoCs that now support the cloud computing revolution and every major cloud-connected device, SoC complexity is increasing at a dizzying pace. We commonly now see increasing number of IP cores, cores from multiple sources, different protocols and core frequencies, and so on. And of course, the growing challenges this level of complexity brings to SoC designers and their ability to execute a successful SoC program are also major considerations. So the answer to the above question drove an interesting panel discussion on the emergence and importance of IP subsystems at this month’s DAC.

As featured in: If you’re paying attention and/or using a smart phone every day (and perhaps it’s safer to assume the latter) the ‘cloud’ is no longer a buzzword. The cloud has become grounded in our daily reality. How’s that for a paradox and a visual? But at a minimum, it has become more like …
