Morgan Kaufmann Publishes Tensilica Book Targeting SOC Designers

“Designing SOCs with Configured Cores: Unleashing the Tensilica Xtensa and Diamond Cores,” by Steve Leibson, technology evangelist at Tensilica, is now available. The book is a no-nonsense guide to the design of 21st-century mega-gate SOCs using nanometer silicon and emphasizes a processor-centric system on chip (SOC) design style. “Designing SOCs with Configured Cores” also provides SOC designers with the most comprehensive assessment available of the practical aspects of configuring and using multiple processor cores to achieve their very difficult and ambitious price, performance, and power design goals.

The book, published by Morgan Kaufmann, provides SOC designers with a practical introduction to three basic techniques of modern SOC design: use of optimized standard CPU and DSP processors cores, application-specific configuration of processor cores, and system-level design of SOCs using configured cores as the key building block. The book has a list price of $59.95 and is available at
