Cary Robins to Present Research Paper at IP 08

December 2, 2008

Bedford, MA. ChipWrights, Inc. a subsidiary of AD Group. ChipWrights President and expert on SoC technology, Cary Robins, will present a research paper at the IP Based Electronic System Conference and Exhibition (IP 08).

The paper, titled, “SoC IP Interfaces and Infrastructure - A Hybrid Approach” was co-authored by Robins and Shannon Hill (Hardware Engineer at ChipWrights, Inc). The paper presents a hybrid approach to solving the errors and performance-related issues in regard to Intellectual Property (IP) integration into SoC design.

At the conference, which takes places on December 3-4, 2008 in Grenoble, France, Robins will discuss three generations of SoC designs beginning with a flat single AHB Bus based interconnect, followed by a multi-tier AHB/APB segmented communication infrastructure and finally a hybrid approach using both the AHB bus for control path operations and point to point BVCI connections through an internal crossbar for data flow. Robins will also discuss options and tradeoffs in the various industry standard interfaces and crossbar arbitration mechanisms.

IP 08 will be the 17th edition of the working conference on hot topics in the design world, focusing for the past 7 years on IP-based SoC design and held in the well known Silicon and Alliance Nanometer Valley in the French Alps.
