Synopsys White Paper
Dealing with change has become more important than ever - whether you need to support a new emerging standard or respond to new functionality that your competition just released. And, as if the drive towards more flexibility and versatility isn't complex enough, designers also need to deal with growing performance demands and power efficiency while meeting time-to-market pressures.
So what about trading fixed hardware implementation for software flexibility? This white paper provides you with the understanding of how custom processors offer the flexibility needed to deal with multiple standards, multiple modes and late design changes as well as help minimize verification effort. Custom processors are ideal for use in a wide variety of application including video, audio, security, networking, baseband, control and industrial automation applications.
