If your application requires a great deal of signal processing, examine BDTI's benchmark results. Using their benchmark scores, BDTI compares devices with regard to power consumption, speed, and price. Figure 2 looks at speed for select processors using the BDTImark2000™ and BDTIsimMark2000™. The BDTImark2000 and BDTIsimMark2000 are summary measures of signal-processing speed. The scores are distilled from results on the BDTI DSP Kernel Benchmarks™, a suite of 12 key DSP algorithms. A higher score indicates a faster processor. For more scores—and to learn more about the BDTI DSP Kernel Benchmarks—go to www.bdti.com/bdtimark/BDTImark2000.htm.

Ethernet's ease of use, cost effectiveness, high bandwidth, stability, security, and a high degree of compatibility makes it a natural solution for accessing the Internet. In addition to SOHO and corporate networks, Ethernet is gradually making its way into consumer and household devices as a primary way to access the Internet, satisfying both the stability and reliability demanded by industrial users and the bandwidth and multimedia connectivity demanded by home consumers.

Legacy code also plays an important role. MCU code is likely to assume byte addressing, 32-bit operations and a 32-bit address space. In contrast, legacy DSP code typically assumes 16-bit addressing, 16-bit arithmetic, and a 16-bit address space.

For example, he said, if a set of components can be shut down, they may want to put them together. That may affect the delay, the scheduling, in the microarchitecture. All of that is interleaved, which presents a challenge to the RTL designer today. So it would be very attractive for behavioral synthesis to automate that process.”

When analyzing modulation, the IQnxn can show constellation diagrams, make EVM (error vector magnitude) measurements, and check for things such as spectral flatness. It can also measure carrier leakage, EVM vs. symbol/time, and EVM vs. carrier, to name a few of its capabilities.

Advances in process and design technologies pose significant challenges when chips are being designed to meet often-conflicting specifications. Power dissipation is now the dominant performance-limiting factor in nanometer designs. Materials and structures used in nanometer processes show increased leakage power and decreased thermal conduction.
