Engineering the Complex SOC The first unified hardware/software guide to processor-centric SOC design Processor-centric approaches enable SOC designers to complete far larger projects in far less time. Engineering the Complex SOCis a comprehensive, example-driven guide to creating designs with configurable, extensible processors. Drawing upon Tensilica’s Xtensa architecture and TIE language, Dr. Chris Rowen systematically illuminates the issues, opportunities, and challenges of processor-centric design. Rowen introduces a radically new design methodology, then covers its essential techniques: processor configuration, extension, hardware/software co-generation, multiple processor partitioning/communication, and more. Coverage includes: Why extensible processors are necessary: shortcomings of current design methods Comparing extensible processors to traditional processors and hardwired logic Extensible processor architecture and mechanisms of processor extensibility Latency, throughput, coordination of parallel functions, hardware interconnect options, management of design complexity, and other issues Multiple-processor SOC architecture for embedded systems Task design from the viewpoints of software andhardware developers Advanced techniques: implementing complex state machines, task-to-task synchronization, power optimization, and more Toward a “sea of processors”: Long-term trends in SOC design and semiconductor technology For all architects, hardware engineers, software designers, and SOC program managers involved with complex SOC design; and for all managers investing in SOC designs, platforms, processors, or expertise.

This cutting-edge resource offers you an in-depth understanding of metamodeling approaches for the reuse of intellectual properties (IPs) in the form of reusable design or verification components. The books covers the essential issues associated with fast and effective integration of reusable design components into a system-on-a-chip (SoC) to achieve faster design turn-around time. Moreover, it addresses key factors related to the use of reusable verification IPs for a "write once, use many times" verification strategy - another effective approach that can attain a faster product design cycle.

Microprocessor cores used for SOC design are the direct descendents of Intel’s original 4004 microprocessor. Just as packaged microprocessor ICs vary widely in their attributes, so do microprocessors packaged as IP cores. However, SOC designers still compare and select processor cores the way they previously compared and selected packaged microprocessor ICs. The big problem with this selection method is that it assumes that the laws of the microprocessor universe have remained unchanged for decades. This assumption is no longer valid. Processor cores for SOC designs can be far more plastic than microprocessor ICs for board-level system designs. Shaping these cores for specific applications produces much better processor efficiency and much lower system clock rates. Together, Tensilica’s Xtensa and Diamond processor cores constitute a family of software-compatible microprocessors covering an extremely wide performance range from simple control processors, to DSPs, to 3-way superscalar processors. Yet all of these processors use the same software-development tools so that programmers familiar with one processor in the family can easily switch to another. This book emphasizes a processor-centric MPSOC (multiple-processor SOC) design style shaped by the realities of the 21st-century and nanometer silicon. It advocates the assignment of tasks to firmware-controlled processors whenever possible to maximize SOC flexibility, cut power dissipation, reduce the size and number of hand-built logic blocks, shrink the associated verification effort, and minimize the overall design risk. · An essential, no-nonsense guide to the design of 21st-century mega-gate SOCs using nanometer silicon. · Discusses today's key issues affecting SOC design, based on author's decades of personal experience in developing large digital systems as a design engineer while working at Hewlett-Packard's Desktop Computer Division and at EDA workstation pioneer Cadnetix, and covering such topics as an award-winning technology journalist and editor-in-chief for EDN magazine and the Microprocessor Report. · Explores conventionally accepted boundaries and perceived limits of processor-based system design and then explodes these artificial constraints through a fresh outlook on and discussion of the special abilities of processor cores designed specifically for SOC design. · Thorough exploration of the evolution of processors and processor cores used for ASIC and SOC design with a look at where the industry has come from, and where it's going. · Easy-to-understand explanations of the capabilities of configurable and extensible processor cores through a detailed examination of Tensilica's configurable, extensible Xtensa processor core and six pre-configured Diamond cores. · The most comprehensive assessment available of the practical aspects of configuring and using multiple processor cores to achieve very difficult and ambitious SOC price, performance, and power design goals.

System-on-Package (SOP) is an emerging microelectronic technology that places an entire system on a single chip-size package. Where “systems” used to be bulky boxes housing hundreds of components, SOP saves interconnection time and heat generation by keep a full system with computing, communications, and consumer functions all in a single chip. Written by the Georgia Tech developers of the technology, this book explains the basic parameters, design functions, and manufacturing issues, showing electronic designers how this radical new packaging technology can be used to solve pressing electronics design challenges.

Starting with a basic overview of system-on-a-chip (SoC), including definitions of related terms, this new book helps you understand SoC design challenges, and the latest design and test methodologies. You see how ASIC technology evolved to an embedded cores-based concept that includes pre-designed, reusable Intellectual Property (IP) cores that act as microprocessors, data storage devices, DSP, bus control, and interfaces -- all "stitched" together by a User's Defined Logic (UDL).
