1.2. SoC Design Issues
· Architectural complexity has manufolded due to significant advancement in technolgy.
· Deed submicron and nanometer technological fabrication processes are very much sensitive to variations in process, voltage and temperature.
· System verification and integration challenges are increasing as analog/RF, digital hardware, non-electrical parts such as sensors, actuators etc are becoming part of SoC.
· Normal ASIC design methodology is itelf too costly for SoC. Cost to develop is very high.
