Reality Check: A Guide to Understanding Optimized Processor Cores
The performance of the processor core in an SoC is often a key product differentiator, particularly in smartphones and tablets. It's not just about performance though—power and cost are equally important considerations. In today's markets, SoC developers have to hit aggressive power, performance and area goals to remain competitive. This white paper discusses the many interacting parameters that determine the optimum implementation for your application.
