The Eyes Have It
  • About

    This blog discusses all things related to mixed-signal PHY IP such as the latest trends, design challenges and anything that may be controversial.

    I built my first crystal radio at about the age of ten (had help with the soldering iron) and have been dabbling in the analog electronics field ever since. The "James Brown of Analog": I do like James Brown and have I been working in the electronics industry for many years. I’m also a big fan of Reggae and Ska and spent my youth listening to John Peel on Radio 1. Ken Boothe is the greatest singer. Running is a passion. Squaw Valley is the best place to ski. Ever!

International SoC Conference With Analog/Mixed-Signal IP Focus

Posted by Navraj Nandra on October 21st, 2012

The 10th International SoC Conference will be held in Irvine, California on October 24th and 25th. http://www.socconference.com/agenda.htm for details. There will be a track on analog/mixed-signal including a presentation on design requirements for 28-nm and 20-nm analog/mixed-signal IP on the 24th. Details on:

  • Design requirements for lower power, higher performance on 28-nm & 20-nm and shrink path expectations in terms of power, performance and area (PPA) will be discussed
  • The technical challenges implementing Analog/Mixed-Signal IP such as USB, PCI Express®, DDR, MIPI, HDMI, Analog Front-End (AFE) for LTE/WiFi, and audio codecs
  • Market requirement to meet PPA using early PDK and work on first instantiation in SoC
  • Advanced silicon design methodology to 14-nm will also be presented

Looking forward to seeing you there!
