Challenges in delivering sub-System IP
By Chakra Parvathaneni,
Posedge's IP portfolio has Sub-System IP is like Wireless LAN
(802.11n), routing/switching IP and SSD controller. And Posedge has
extensive experience in delivery and deploying these solutions in
various SoCs. Based on our experience it is clear that Sub-System IP
delivery needs to be complete above and beyond providing
functionally compliant design, but it includes
Application Aware Software (Delivering just an API layer
is not good enough)
For example in WLAN, Posedge Provides Multi-BSS, BT
Completeness with respect to providing RF (Radio), Data
Convertors (ADC/DACs), Hardware IP (MAC and Baseband) and
Need to provide End to End solution
Certification Support. IP Vendor need to have a support
model to enable Customer's WiFi certification, FCC
certification and other regulatory requirements like DFS.
Production Testing. IP Vendor needs to provide, Production
test routines with respect to trimming, calibration
The discussion / presentation is around the different things
expected in the market place for "Sub-System IP's" with specific
examples. It not only talks about the requirements, but also some
solutions to the problems.
