Program Your Way To SoC Success With FPGAs
Design How-To  
3/26/2004   Post a comment
With silicon rapidly evolving from single-function devices to more intricate SoCs that pack myriad functions on just one die, designers are facing unprecedented levels of complexity. Improvements in process technology continue to push the theoretical limits of wiring to create crosstalk bedlam. The need to integrate existing or third-party IP offer unusual challenges to teams accustomed to building chips from scratch. And, design tools and methods often solve yesterday's problems better than cur
