Paper Abstract

As system solutions move to volume production it is often necessary to integrate part or all of the solution. Integration may be done to lower cost, power or noise. Or it may be done to increase performance or even security of the system. This may be accomplished by migrating some hard wired logic to programmable devices and other logic to ASICs. However, integration becomes more difficult if the system includes a Digital Signal Processor (DSP), as the operating speeds increase while power limitations are lowered. Integrating memory with the processor is a possibility. However, this requires a line of DSP devices with varying amounts of memory. The paper examines different techniques for system integration. It includes discussions of advantages of the different techniques. The paper also discusses the required design environments and tools for integrating DSPs with other required circuits.
