Meeting design requirements and project objectives is a must. Being able to do it with precision is an innovation that can differentiate one product from another. With the explosion of data traffic in all aspects of today’s connected world, SoC designers need more control over floating point logic used in their design. Attend this webinar and find out how you can control your design’s floating point logic using the DesignWare Foundation Cores flexible floating point format. We will use a multiply/addition example showing the QoR benefits, the versatility of flexible floating point format, and precision tuning of the design.

What you will learn:

  • Achieving design requirements with precision
  • Making power, performance and area tradeoffs with floating point accuracy
  • Meeting design objectives for SoCs that require complex mathematical operations

Who should attend:
SoC designers, design managers, R&D teams
