Electronic Systems Design Seminar
Application-Specific Instruction-set Processor (ASIP) is becoming an essential component in System-on-Chip designs, due to its performance advantages over fixed processors and time-to-market advantages over hard-wired logic. This talk reviews the current ASIP technologies developed at Tensilica, relates the ASIP features to the needs in programmable platform designs, and concludes with some challenges for further research.
