Overview:

The demand for physical IP in 90-nm to 10-nm process nodes is driven by the market requirements for wearable devices/IoT
and application processors that require increased integration for next-generation mobile devices.

The technical requirements, process technologies and IP design approaches for each application are unique. The rise in wearable/IoT
applications has given a new impetus to the established nodes (90-nm and 55-nm bulk CMOS), while leading-edge nodes (14/16-nm
and 10-nm FinFET) are required to support high-performance, low-power application processors in mobile devices. Both markets
require IP tailored for the specific application and supported by the IP ecosystem.

This technical webinar will review the process and IP requirements for wearable/IoT devices and mobile application processors.
It will describe the different design approaches for physical IP from 90-nm to 10-nm for these markets. Finally, the webinar
will review the importance of close collaboration between the IP provider and foundries to help ensure successful IP implementation
and ramp-up.

What You Will Learn:

  • Technical requirements for wearable devices and application processors
  • Differentiating design approaches for physical IP from 90-nm to 10-nm for specific markets
  • How the close collaboration between the IP provider and foundries helps ensure successful IP implementation and ramp-up


Who Should Attend:


SoC designers, architects, and managers interested in designing and implementing IP for IoT/wearable applications or mobile
application processors
