From specific design team skills, to organizational and economic impacts, the move to bespoke silicon is shaking things up.
Bespoke silicon developers are shaking up relationships, priorities, and methodologies across the semiconductor industry, creating demand for skills that cross traditional boundaries, and driving new business models that leverage these enormous investments.
Bespoke silicon designers today are a rare breed, capable of understanding the unique requirements of a specific domain, as well as a growing array of issues that can crop up in multiple stages of the design flow. At the most basic level, they need to understand what works best in hardware, what works best in software, and how to tightly integrate both to optimize performance and power….
