There really is a whiteboard in the new Cadence Whiteboard Wednesdays video blog series, and it's put to good use. This new blog series provides practical information and hands-on insights about system-on-chip (SoC) design with semiconductor IP, and it does so with videos that are short (4-minute range), focused, informative, and entertaining.
The Whiteboard Wednesdays blogs are featured on the new Cadence IP landing page. You can also find the blogs directly at /blogs/whiteboardwednesdays/default.aspx or below the "Community" tab on Cadence.com. New postings typically appear on Tuesdays.
As of this writing (Feb. 25, 2014) there have been five Whiteboard Wednesday posts. Here they are, with direct links to each post:
Whiteboard Wednesdays - Closing the Memory Wall GapJanuary 22, 2014
This inaugural blog post addresses the memory wall gap - the phenomenon that occurs when the bandwidth of microprocessors outpaces the bandwidth of the memory in the design. Scott Jacobson of Cadence takes a closer look at how CPU performance outstrips memory transfers and discusses the options available to system designers. He also covers 2D solutions like EMMC 5.0, UFS, and DDR4, as well as 3D solutions like HMC, HBM, Wide I/O 2, and DDR4 3DS.
Whiteboard Wednesdays - Imaging, Video, and Embedded VisionFeb. 4, 2014
Gary Brown from the Tensilica Imaging and Video Division at Cadence talks about imaging, video, and embedded vision technologies that are being worked on today. Gary gives a high-level overview of the industry sectors and end products that leverage these technologies and some of the tradeoffs that need to be considered during the design process.
Whiteboard Wednesdays - What is VIP?Feb. 11, 2014
Tom Hackett, product marketing director at Cadence, talks about the important role that verification IP (VIP) plays in the verification process. Tom details how VIP provides known good designs and stress testing for all interfaces and memory components, helping you to develop bug-free chips.
Whiteboard Wednesdays - Implementing Always-On AudioFeb. 18, 2014
Gerard Andrews from the Tensilica Audio DSP Group at Cadence discusses always-on audio functionality. Gerard details features like voice trigger, sensor fusion, and low-power audio playback, and explains how Cadence's HiFi DSP solution can help you successfully implement always-on audio technology in today's mobile devices.
Whiteboard Wednesdays - How the MIPI Alliance Works to Enhance Mobile DevicesFeb. 25, 2014
Moshik Ruben, Product Marketing Director at Cadence, explains why the MIPI Alliance formed and what its mission is. He discusses MIPI protocols including CSI-2, DSI, D-PHY, SLIMBUS, M-PHY, UniPro, UFS, CSI-3, LLI and DDRF. This year alone, these protocols are projected to be shipped in over 4 billion mobile devices.
