Connectivity (Internet of Things)

The Internet of Things (IoT) covers billions of connected devices in a wide range of applications, from remote sensors collating data at a very low data rate, wearables, smart connected devices in the home, neighborhood and industrial applications to automotive devices. Along with a broad set of applications there is a range of wireless communication standards and technologies.

Due to time to market, cost and ultra-low power consumption constraints, SoC developers generally look for single solution across multiple applications and standards. Synopsys offers an extensive portfolio of DesignWare IP, including programmable processors that can support multiple wireless communication standards on a single core, to meet a range of application requirements.
