Respond faster to changing networking requirements
More and more consumers have chosen the ‘cloud’ as their primary source of information, entertainment and communications – which has fueled a significant increase in data, voice, gaming and multimedia content that is being downloaded, transferred, played and viewed on home networks. This content is driving the demand for servers, routers, Wi-Fi, and last mile home and infrastructure solutions.
SoC designers targeting the broadband access markets require high-performance devices to access, deliver and store content to and from the home. Sonics offers its customers the ability to rapidly respond to changing networking requirements by delivering a range of System IP products for complex SoCs used in these markets. This IP includes on-chip network solutions featuring high reliability, increased performance and the design scalability necessary for home networking SoCs, wireless data network SoCs used in a multi-functional gateways and last mile solutions.
Sonics products including SonicsGN and SonicsSX are the on-chip network backbone of many of these infrastructure SoC devices. Offering unmatched speed, SGN provided SoC designers with a >1GHz network-on-chip capability and when coupled with the MemMax DRAM scheduler, offers the highest bandwidth performance by optimizing the memory subsystem design for the most efficient DRAM access.
Sonics System IP products also provide SoC designers with development and analysis tools to ensure optimal performance of the SoC. Using stimulus and data-base analysis tools, Sonics allows SoC designer to easily iterate designs for optimal performance while minimizing the chip gate count for the best cost performance trade-off.
