Programming heterogeneous multiprocessors
Design How-To  
8/24/2006   Post a comment
In this article, we examine how to program a heterogeneous multiprocessor (such as TI's DaVinci) based on the proven method of the Remote Procedure Call (RPC). We examine how this method addresses numerous programming challenges. We also explain how the RPC method introduces some pitfalls, and show how they may be avoided.

BOM shrinks handset costs
Teardown  
8/14/2006   Post a comment
Reducing the handset bill of materials can be a chip designer's nightmare, involving further integration of the various radio, baseband and audio functions to reduce chip count. By comparing the silicon solutions developed by Infineon for the Panasonic EB-MX6 handset and the new PMB7870 E- GOLDradio, one can see the cost savings and system simplification achievable with the more highly integrated solution. This article will also review some key aspects of the PMB7870 E-GOLDradio.
