Design & Reuse: Streamlining SoC Integration With the Power of Automation
byOn Oct 23, 2023
The rapid acceleration of semiconductor technologies is creating system-on-chip (SoC) devices that are increasingly complex. These chips contain billions of transistors and hundreds of functional intellectual property (IP) blocks. This exploding complexity requires the automation of the SoC integration, which is the process of instantiating, connecting and configuring all the IPs. This process often includes a mix of IPs from trusted third-party vendors and internally developed components distinguishing the design from competitors.
