Sensors are becoming a part of everyone’s daily life. Many applications, such as those found in mobile devices, rely on sensors’ abilities to read and interpret environmental conditions such as pressure, temperature, motion, and proximity. Digital signal processing (DSP) functions, hardware accelerators, and sensor interfaces are now common in SoC designs supporting these applications.

This webinar will:

  • Discuss the evolution of sensor-based systems and how the complexity of these systems is driving the need for an integrated, pre-verified sensor IP subsystem
  • Show how integrating a DesignWare ARC® EM4 32-bit processor with sensor interfaces and DSP hardware accelerators provide significant improvements in power, performance and area
  • Describe how the hardware and software DesignWare® Sensor IP solution eases integration effort, while offering a 40-60% area savings with lower latency compared to typical bus-based systems

Length: 50 minutes + 10 minutes of Q&A

Who should attend: Design engineers, managers and system architects developing SoCs for applications such as smart sensors, sensor fusion or sensor hubs.
