Scrambling to keep up the the spiraling bandwidth requirements of
high-speed processing cores, SoC designers are looking at various on-chip bus options. Jack Shandle describes three bus flavorsshared, switched, and networkedand discusses how some major microprocessor core and silicon IP companies are addressing the problem of moving data on silicon.
