While cable TV accounts for the majority of set-top boxes, still 20% of U.S. broadband households own at least one streaming media player, such as a Roku 3, Amazon Fire TV, or Apple TV. Interestingly, 90% of Netflix subscribers, 90% of Amazon Prime subscribers, and 88% of Hulu customers also maintain pay TV subscriptions. Interactive services such as personal video recording, movies on demand, shopping, and games are expected to boost the adoption of the set-top boxes market in the coming years.
NetSpeed’s advanced NoC IP platform bridges the difficult gap between architecture specification and design implementation. NetSpeed platform brings the benefits of synthesis to front-end design with an intelligent platform that automates the architecture process and identifies optimal design solutions.
NetSpeed has industry’s first and only interconnect synthesis engine to optimize PPA. NocStudio includes tools that enable architects to design, configure and simulate NetSpeed IP as well as evaluate multiple SoC architectures.
NetSpeed platform is a requirements driven design flow that synthesizes SoC interconnect and optimizes PPA based on user specifications. The fabric itself can be designed and customized based on fine-grained user requirements and inputs.
NetSpeed's technology adapts to floorplan and uses placement information to automate timing closure and thus creates a design that is ready for first-pass timing closure.
NetSpeed is relentlessly focused on giving customers industry’s best PPA (Power, Performance and Area). With its unique heterogeneous architecture, NetSpeed’s NoC platform delivers scalable high performance and can support an ever increasing number of IP blocks in a SoC. NetSpeed’s technology uses a physically distributed architecture that enables architects to get the best-in-class performance from the coherent and non-coherent interconnect.
NetSpeed’s NoC platform enables an organization to reduce project risks at every stage in the design cycle.
NetSpeed technology creates application-level deadlock-free interconnects. It uses a graph theory-based approach and formal techniques to ensure full deadlock avoidance both at the network & protocol-level.
NetSpeed IP is aware of the physical layout of the on-chip system components producing an interconnect topology that is customized for the SoC layout.
NetSpeed offers multiple kinds of algorithmic ECO capabilities to allow last minute design changes while minimizing the overall change to interconnect and SoC design. These algorithmic optimizations minimizes effort as well as schedule.
