The world we know today is becoming more and more connected, with increasingly sophisticated, always connected, devices. People have come to rely on high-speed connected devices. Today we stream our movies and TV through wireless connected mobile devices and we are quickly moving to a future of always-connected autonomous vehicles.
For example, Release 15 of the 5G specification from the 3GPP – ITU standards organization has unified many of the wireless connectivity applications and has pushed the specifications of data rates above 1Gbps for mobile wireless devices.
As the majority of these mobile devices will be battery powered, modem SoC (baseband) developers face a very complex task of implementing higher performance data computation systems, but within the very tight power and area budgets required by the demanding consumer markets.
Synopsys’ extensive portfolio of DesignWare IP, including ARC Processors, offers a complete and wide range of IP cores to meet these requirements.
