NetSpeed’s Pegasus Last-Level Cache IP Improves SoC Performance and Reduces Latency

NetSpeed’s Pegasus Last-Level Cache IP Improves SoC Performance and Reduces Latency
by Mitch Heins on 07-17-2017 at 7:00 am

Memory is always a critical resource for a System-on-Chip (SoC) design. It seems like designers are always wanting more memory, and the memory they have is never fast enough to keep up with the processors, especially when using multi-core processors and GPUs. To complicate matters, today’s SoC architectures tend to share memory… Read More


NetSpeed Taking a Ride with Autonomous Automobiles

NetSpeed Taking a Ride with Autonomous Automobiles
by Mitch Heins on 04-24-2017 at 12:00 pm

Image RemovedThe push for autonomous automobiles continues at a rapid pace. Last week a new conference was held in Santa Clara, CA by the Linley Group focused on Autonomous Hardware. The group included presentations from GLOBAL FOUNDRIES, Synopsys, NetSpeed Systems, Arteris, EMBC, Cadence, CEVA, ARM and Trilumina covering… Read More


Automotive OEMs Get Boost as NetSpeed NoC is Certified ISO 26262 Ready

Automotive OEMs Get Boost as NetSpeed NoC is Certified ISO 26262 Ready
by Mitch Heins on 03-07-2017 at 12:00 pm

Image Removed
I read with great interest today news from NetSpeed Systems that both their Gemini and Orion NoC IPs have been certified ISO 26262 ASIL D ready. They were certified by SGS-TUV Saar GmbH, an independent accredited assessor. This is a big deal as up till now, it was left up to the OEMs to do most of the heavily lifting to qualify… Read More

Executive Interview: Joe Rowlands, Chief Architect at NetSpeed Systems
by Daniel Nenni on 01-02-2017 at 7:00 am

Image RemovedJoe has devoted his career to understanding and designing cache coherent systems and has been granted over 95 patents on the subject. For the past four years, he has been Chief Architect at NetSpeed, a developer of network-on-chip SoC interconnect.… Read More


NetSpeed Bridges the Gap Between Architecture and Implementation

NetSpeed Bridges the Gap Between Architecture and Implementation
by Mitch Heins on 12-29-2016 at 11:30 am

Image RemovedThis is part II of an article covering NetSpeed’s network-on-chip (NoC) offerings. This article dives a little deeper into what a NoC is and how NetSpeed’s network synthesis tool, NocStudio, helps system architects optimize a NoC for their system-on-a-chip (SoC) design.

Traditionally IC designers have used proprietary… Read More


NetSpeed Leverages Machine Learning for Automotive IC End-to-End QoS Solutions

NetSpeed Leverages Machine Learning for Automotive IC End-to-End QoS Solutions
by Mitch Heins on 12-24-2016 at 4:00 pm

Image RemovedA couple of weeks back I wrote an article about the use of machine learning and deep neural networks in self-driving cars. Now I find that machine learning is also being applied to help build advanced end-to-end QoS (quality of service) solutions for the automotive IC market. With the advent of self-driving cars comes… Read More


It’s a heterogeneous world and cache rules it now

It’s a heterogeneous world and cache rules it now
by Don Dingee on 09-28-2016 at 4:00 pm

Cache evolved when the world was all about homogeneous processing and slow and expensive shared memory. Now, compute is just part of the problem – devices need to handle display, connectivity, storage, and other tasks, all at the same time. Different, heterogeneous cores handle different workflows in the modern SoC, and the burden… Read More

SoC QoS gets help from machine learning

SoC QoS gets help from machine learning
by Don Dingee on 07-29-2016 at 4:00 pm

Several companies have attacked the QoS problem in SoC design, and what is emerging from that conversation is the best approach may be several approaches combined in a hybrid QoS solution. At the recent Linley Group Mobile Conference, NetSpeed Systems outlined just such a solution with an unexpected plot twist in synthesis.

Top Mobile OEM Uses NetSpeed to Boost Its Next Gen Application Processor

Top Mobile OEM Uses NetSpeed to Boost Its Next Gen Application Processor
by Eric Esteve on 04-20-2016 at 12:00 pm

The smartphone segment is certainly the most competitive market for chip makers today and the yearly product launch cadence puts a lot of pressure on the application processor design cycle. End-users expect to benefit from higher image definition, better sound quality, ever faster and more complex applications which push the… Read More
