Maximizing Memory Performance

Performance-IP’s Memory Request Optimizer Pushes Your Design Forward

Step right up, ladies and gentlemen. We’ve got CPUs, GPUs, audio codecs, video accelerators, bailing wire, and duct tape. This week’s Fish Fry is about how you can get all of your component ducks in a row with a little help from Performance-IP. Gregg Recupero (CTO – Performance-IP) and I discuss the details of Performance IP’s Memory Request Optimizer, how you can boost the performance of your design while reducing latency in your memory subsystem, and how Performance-IP works with the EDA big dogs (rather than competing against them). Keeping with our memory theme, we also take a closer look at groundbreaking research from MIT that could completely change our understanding of how memories are formed in the brain.
