Semiconductor Engineering: Winners and Losers At The Edge

Kurt Shuler, Vice President of Marketing at Arteris IP comments in this new article in Semiconductor Engineering:

Winners and Losers At The Edge

July 7th, 2020 - By Ed Sperling

No company owns this market yet — and won’t for a very long time. 

 
 
“Everything is use-case based when designing the NoC,” said Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at  Arteris IP . “You’ve got to understand what the use case is to be able to size up that NoC. There are two aspects of this. One is in the creation of that network on chip and the configuration of it, and what gets burned into the chip. The other step is, once you’ve created all the roads — they’re this long or this wide — that’s it.

All About Circuits: The Role of Last-Level Cache Implementation for SoC Developers

Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP authored this new All About Circuits article:

The Role of Last-Level Cache Implementation for SoC Developers

May 13th, 2020 - By Kurt Shuler

There is a challenge for SoC developers to find ways to navigate the demand of memory in their design. This article looks at how a fourth, or last-level, cache can provide a solution.

So, what’s the best memory solution? For hints, we can look at what other companies are doing. Tear-down analyses have shown that Apple, for one, solves the speed mismatch problem by adding another cache. If a big company with nearly infinite R&D resources designs around its SoCs bottlenecks this way, it’s probably worth looking into.

New! Arteris IP Technical Paper, Re-Architecting SoCs for the AI Era

Kurt Shuler, VP of Marketing at Arteris IP has written this 10-page technical paper titled, "Re-Architecting SoCs for the AI Era".

August 29, 2019 - by Kurt Shuler

Abstract:
The growth of artificial intelligence (AI) demands that semiconductor companies re-architect their system on chip (SoC) designs to provide more scalable levels of performance, flexibility, efficiency, and integration. From the edge to data centers, AI applications require a rethink of memory structures, the numbers and types of heterogeneous processors and hardware accelerators, and careful consideration of how the dataflow is enabled and managed between the various high-performance IP blocks.
