Programmable Architectures of Mixed Signal Systems-on-Chip for Portable Consumer devicesEmbedded systems conference Tel-Aviv
April 10, 2006
A new paradigm is evolving because a SoC is not a mere Microcontroller IC just fashionably renamed, but a Programmable Architecture with hierarchical design-in of Virtual Components of Silicon IP.
All portable consumer SoC's tend to become mixed signal for cost-effectively embedding Power Management Units or DC-DC converters as well as A/D and D/A converters. SoC Architectures now must guarantee the resilience of each participating ViC to Disturbances emitted by the others, or received from the surroundings PCB...
