Micronetworks for SOC Integration

Michael J. Meyer


The increased level of integration in SOC designs presents several challenges to design reuse and time-to-market. Micronetworks are a communications-based approach to SOC integration where each core has a standard interface and an agent manages the communication from this standard interface to the other cores on the SOC. System level tuning is done by changes to the agent, not the core. This talk will present micronetworks and the tools and design methodology needed to use them.
