Automating Testbench Creation to Accelerate Network-on-Chip Verification

Network-on-Chip (NoC) is a critical building block for many advanced and complex system-on-chips (SoCs). Having a complete verification solution to verify the functionality along with the performance (latency/bandwidth) is a must to ensure there are no functional bugs and no performance bottlenecks.

DDR5 – Off and Running

The Joint Electron Device Engineering Council (JEDEC) has been developing and maintaining DRAM standards for years, defining emerging Memory standards like the DRAM standard. The most recent announcement declares the fifth generation of the DRAM, DDR5, is finally ready for release. The work to define DDR5 began in 2017 with the objective of delivering a standard that could move beyond the DDR4 speed limitations of 16 Gb and 3200 MT/s. The intention was to address new applications around data centers high-end servers for handling AI/ML workloads.

Deciphering the New TileLink Standard

Increasing complexities of processor architectures with limited overall performance scale-up have created a demand for a domain specific architecture to ensure extensive performance scaling. – this is when RISC-V began to gain momentum. RISC-V is gathering widespread attention throughout sectors like datacenter accelerators, mobile & wireless, IoT, etc. for its extensibility. Many industry leaders are beginning to adopt RISC-V for its open source availability that reduces time-to-market and cost effectiveness while at the same time scaling up the overall performance and leaving room for innovation and automation.
