Shared Resource Management on a SoC

  • dW (Posted by VISITOR on Feb 23, 2006 2:45 AM EDT)
The goal of a system-on-a-chip (SoC) is to provide a single-chip system, and therefore SoC resource analysis and sizing is critical. Failure to properly size processing, memory, or I/O needed by software services can kill an SoC project. But all too often, SoC design analysis focuses on processing at the expense of memory or I/O sizing. Any mis-sizing or mismanagement of memory and I/O on an SoC can at the least cause significant project delay and rework.

Q: What does StreamServe do?

A: When you get bills from companies, have you ever wondered why they're so ugly? You have no idea what it's for, but you owe them $345. The information that goes onto these invoices or statements comes from five or six different places. We take that information and consolidate it and condense it.
