Multi-core SoCs challenge interconnects

Keywords:interconnect  multi-core  SoC  Ethernet 

System-on-chip (SoC) devices have reduced the boundaries between individual components and the system architectures they implement. Where once a board held one complete computing system, today many such systems are present on a single device.

Multi-core SoCs have rearranged the boundaries among silicon devices, boards and sub-systems. The trend has led to significant changes in chip-to-chip and board-to-board interconnect requirements. This article asks, "Are existing standards-based interconnects ready for this transition?"

This paper discusses how interconnect protocols like Ethernet, PCI Express (PCIe) and RapidIO apply to multi-core devices.
