The Route to Power Efficient, Optimized, Custom Silicon.
v. John Reilly is Senior Partner Manager for Northern Europe
Creating your own silicon has many benefits – enhancing your product, reducing costs, and improving margins, to name a few.
Custom silicon isn’t just for traditional silicon companies though – many OEM and product companies are already reaping these benefits – and there is an opportunity for many more, coupling existing power-efficient architectures with mixed-signal technologies.
The market is changing – product suppliers are now enhancing their products and providng differentiation by using custom silicon. With the availability of low-cost silicon manufacturing, expert design service companies, and easy access to low-cost chip technology, a customized chip is now more possible than ever. This presentation will outline how you, as a product manufacturer, can reap the cost, size, power, reliability advantages of having a chip designed specifically for your needs. The presentation will explore the process of getting a custom chip – how to select the technology/IP to put in it, the manufacturing (foundry) process, the help that is available and the various programs (such as Arm DesignStart) that simplify this process.
Whether you are creating a smart home product, adding machine learning intelligence to an industrial controller, or making a smart sensor, this presentation will help you understand more about custom silicon and how it can help you create even better products.
