Read or watch the complete interview of Eric Flamand, speaking about a breakthrough SoC for IoT applications and sharing its experience of cooperating with Dolphin Integration.

Eric Flamand, co-founder and CTO of GreenWaves Technologies

 

Dolphin Integration’s Silicon IPs, already silicon proven in a representative low-power SoC test chip, allow us to deliver best in class power consumption figures in stand-by as well as very fast switching time between different operating Voltage / Frequency points. Furthermore, integrating those components into our SoC reduces significantly the overall system BOM while greatly simplifying the system design around GAP8. [...] FPGA demos of GAP8 are available to customers today, and GAP8 samples will be available in mid-2017.

Loic Lietar, co-founder and CEO of GreenWaves Technologies

 

Dolphin Integration is a leading silicon IP provider for low-power IoT SoCs. In view of the growing demand for low power consumption in IoT devices, we intend to leverage the unique solutions offered by Dolphin Integration to meet the challenges of our IoT customers

We already have licensed several audio Codecs from Dolphin. But their new generation of audio Codecs should help us reach new heights. First, the power consumption of their DAC is amazingly low. In playback mode, the total power consumption of the DAC with a Class AB headphone amplifier does not exceed 7 mW! This translates into a much longer usage on battery for our end-users. Second, this audio Codec relies on their new and patented technology for reducing pop-up noise below an audible level. Last but not least, they have enhanced their audio Codec architecture to significantly reduce the out-of-band noise, which shall facilitate the performance appreciation by our users, even those which do not own a test equipment dedicated to audio measurement.

We are pleased to cooperate with Dolphin Integration to provide a professional music experiencing with the right cost and power consumption. We had to by-pass its limits in terms of the old SoC computing power and we had initially contemplated replacing it with Dolphin’s silicon IP core offering better cost-performance rating. Our targeted users are sensitive to cost as well as to power consumption. Dolphin Integration appeared as a better choice for our multimedia SoCs in many respects: overall silicon area saving, memory and power consumption reduction, while overall performance is improved.
