Like the rest of enterprise IT, storage is evolving to adapt to the era of big-data. More and more, smaller businesses are turning to SaaS applications and cloud-based storage to lower costs and gain agility. Many enterprises will keep a significant amount of storage capacity on-premises for mission-critical data while using cloud storage for lower-priority data.
Emerging storage solutions focus on flash and virtualization and accommodate maturing technologies like hyper-converged storage. Hyper-converged systems use a software-centric architecture to tightly integrate compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources and other technologies in a commodity hardware forming a software-definable pool of highly scalable shared cloud storage.
New storage chips do much more than store data, they must also manage the data, and transport it over the network. Modern storage technologies also promise to make operations such backup, disaster recovery and archiving much more manageable. For example, highly virtualized, software-defined storage infrastructures can build in backup, disaster recovery and archiving workflows that are efficient and cost-effective.
Data protection is the number one design goal for storage chips. Data protection begins with the SoC where errors are detected and corrected before data is presented to the system. This is one of the many highly complex tasks that the SoC must perform reliably and efficiently with minimal latency and power.
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 takes detailed workload information and uses machine learning algorithms to identify the ideal topology needed while solving complex SoC issues.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, 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 IP offers a powerful collection of functional safety, serviceability and security features.
NetSpeed's functional safety feature provide mechanisms to ensure protection of data through detection and correction of errors. Error containment ensures that compromised data is flagged to the fault controller. Features also include multiple levels of redundancy, automated failure reporting at the silicon and hardware levels.
Serviceability features enable the NoC to proactively and reactively repair known errors and minimize future ones by acting automatically based on configurable options. By providing hook-ups to other SoC IP like fault controller, PMU, etc., it enables collaborating and tight integration with hardware and software stack.
Applications running on mission-critical SoCs have evolved into using open software platforms and applications. These create security risk to hardware and communication at an SoC level. NetSpeed's multi-tiered security features is cognizant of such security risks and provide architectural security support at multiple levels.
