Simplifying Sensor Integration with the DesignWare Sensor IP Subsystem
By Rich Collins, ARC Segment Marketing Manager, Synopsys
Sensors are becoming a part of everyone’s daily life. Many applications, such as those found in mobile devices, rely on sensors’ abilities to read and interpret environmental conditions such as pressure, temperature, motion, and proximity. Digital signal processing (DSP) functions, hardware accelerators, and sensor interfaces are now common in system-on-chip (SoC) designs supporting these applications.
This article highlights the benefits of simplifying sensor integration with Synopsys’ DesignWare® Sensor Subsystem. The Sensor Subsystem offers a high level of IP integration, including hardware, software and DSP library functions, to help designers reduce silicon footprint and power consumption while speeding time to market.
