Wolf: A multiprocessor SoC has two aspects. One is the multiprocessor aspect—we can debate how programmable those processors should be. The other aspect is distinguishing a SoC that’s one chip—plus all the other chips we need to make the system work— but we need to distinguish that architecture from ASICs as well as from the multicore CPUs in personal(More)
System on a chip (SOC) implementations typically require their functional blocks to run at different clock frequencies in order to better optimize the system performance for a wide variety of applications while staying within the power envelope. The functional blocks are required to exchange data between themselves and with off-chip memory through a shared(More)
A fast and reliable design tool for real-time simulation of clock grids is presented here. Its implementation is orders of magnitude faster than SPICE, which makes it well-suited for the analysis of a multitude of design options early in a project. The mathematical formulation fully models a regular RLC clock grid with arbitrarily located loads and input(More)
