FPGA-Prototyping Simplified

Cadence Rolls New Protium Platform

by Kevin Morris

System on Chip (SoC) design today is an incredibly complicated collaborative endeavor. By applying the label “System” to the chips we design, we enter a realm of complex, interdisciplinary interactions that span realms like analog, digital, communications, semiconductor process, and - with increasing dominance - software. Since the first SoCs rolled out a mere decade or so ago, the composition of design teams has shifted notably, with the percentage of cubicles occupied by software developers increasing much more rapidly than those of any of the other engineering disciplines. In most SoC projects today, software development is the critical path, and the other components of the project are merely speed bumps in the software development spiral.  Read More

On the Scene: Project Ara

posted by Amelia Dalton

The race hasn't yet begun. In fact, we're not even on the starting block, but the rule book for this race - the race to the next major innovative mobile platform (smartphone) has been drafted and teams are starting to assemble. Google's Project Ara, the world's first completely modular smartphone is coming, and the modules will be designed by... YOU! On your mark. Get set. Design! (21-Apr)

Smoother IP to SoC Prototyping

posted by Bryon Moyer

Some folks have to prove out IP; others have to integrate IP into an SoC. And some people or groups do both, first building IP and then using it. Prototyping just got easier for that scenario. (4-Feb)

"One of the challenges of bringing FPGAs to markets where software-programmable solutions like MCUs have traditionally ruled is bringing the design team up to speed with creating FPGA designs"

I think the challenge to replace MCUs by FPGAs is simply th…
