Intel Corp. has identified a bug in its Intel 810 or "Whitney" chipset.
The bug, which involves an error with the real-time clock (RTC), occurs when "the RTC may inaccurately report that the clock is not busy when it is actually in the process of updating internal registers," according to a statement posted by an Intel support engineer on an Intel 810 hardware support forum on Intel's Web site. "This may result in invalid data being read in the date and time fields of the real-time clock, but the erratum does not modify the actual RTC values."
As Moore’s Law reverses beyond 28nm, consider network-on-chip (NoC). While more and more content in SoC designs is coming from third-party IP providers, interconnect-fabric is one area that is still in transition.
