White Paper: 7 Critical Questions to Ask When Selecting a Digital Audio Solution for SOC Design

The complexity of delivering a mobile audio IP solution to SOC designers causes design teams to ask many, many questions before choosing an audio core and associated codecs. That's a good thing. The selection process is complex, and the more information you have before making the decision, the better. Experience shows that design teams' questions about mobile audio solutions fall into seven broad categories. Check out this white paper.

Paul McLellan Discusses How to Use Processors in the SOC Dataplane

Tensilica's DPUs are idea for the SOC Dataplane. What's a DPU? Read this article. The main advantages are:

  • Flexibility. Changing the firmware changes the blocks function.
  • Software-based development, with lower cost tools and ease of making last minute changes.
  • Faster and more powerful system modeling, and more complete coverage
  • Time-to-market
  • Ability to make post-silicon changes to the firmware to tweak/improve algorithms
  • DPU processor cores are pre-designed and pre-verified. Just add the firmware.
