Automating the design of SOCs using cores

View publication


Automating the design of system on a chip (SOC) using cores technique was presented. The cores or intellectual property (IP) blocks are used to quickly create SOC design with required complexity. The coreConnect architecture provides three buses namely processor local bus (PLB), on-chip peripheral bus (OPB) and device control-register (DCR) interconnects for interconnecting cores and custom logics. This technology brings a high-level abstraction to SOC design which enables easy reuse of existing components.
