What you should consider when choosing a processor IP core – E-book

This 24-page e-book looks at what you need to consider when choosing a processor IP core.

Most integrated circuits include at least one processor core and some embedded software. On SoCs there may be application processors running the main software, and operating system.  Additionally, multiple subsystems handling functions such as communications, security, and sensors need embedded cores. Requirements for processing vary considerably and there is a wide choice of processor IP cores available to choose from. Processor IP vendors often vie with each other by showing PPA numbers (performance, power, and area) but such indicators can potentially be misleading.

This e-book focuses on:

  • Instruction Set Architecture (ISA)
  • Processor performance
  • Processor complexity
  • Operating system support
  • Subsystem silicon area
  • Licensing models
