The evolution of SoC design has transformed the embedded landscape. As a
result, SoCs have assumed a much higher level of integration,
sophistication and functionality. Over the last few years, one major
area of advancement has been in the network communications area on the
SoC, or “Network-on-chip” (NoC), where today Sonics serves as the chip’s
connectivity backbone and has grown to become the world’s #1 supplier
of on-chip network IP.
The Sonics MemMax® Memory Scheduler provides significant performance increases through unprecedented control and management of concurrent accesses to shared off-chip DRAM. As system-on-chip complexity grows, one of the largest roadblocks to success is costly, inefficient access to shared, off-chip memory. The Sonics MemMax Memory Scheduler provides Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees to initiator cores, drastically lowering the risk of starving high-demand initiators such as DSPs and graphics processors.
