ARM Unveils Cortex-A15 Mpcore Processor to Dramatically Accelerate Capabilities of Mobile, Consumer and Infrastructure Applications 08 September 2010 Unprecedented levels of performance, power-efficiency, and technology leadership accelerate industry momentum to deliver extraordinarily innovative products CAMBRIDGE, UK– SEPT 8, 2010 – ARM today introduced the Cortex™-A15 MPCore processor that delivers a 5x performance improvement over today's advanced smartphone processors, within a comparable energy footprint.
Xilinx Zynq EPPs create a new category that fits in among SoCs, FPGAs, and microcontrollers After telegraphing its punch at ESC last spring, Xilinx has now introduced the first four members of its EPP product line and named them Zynq to differentiate them from the company’s FPGAs.
With the need to integrate an increasing variety of Semiconductor Intellectual Property (IP) blocks in a single System on Chip (SoC), communication management becomes critical when highly diversified functions with varying latency and bandwidth requirements must be supported in an interconnect fabric. NoC technology is often called “a front-end solution to a back-end problem.” As semiconductor transistor dimensions shrink and increasing amounts of IP block functions are added to a chip, the physical infrastructure that carries data on the chip and guarantees quality of service begins to crumble.
