ARM’s Musca-S1 test chip demonstrates a new choice in SoC design for IoT solutions
At the Samsung Foundry Forum, Arm, in a joint effort with Samsung Foundry, Cadence, and Sondrel, showed the first 28nm fully-depleted silicon-on-insulator (FD-SOI) embedded MagnetoResistive Random Access Memory (eMRAM) IoT test chip and advancement board.
The Musca-S1 is intended to offer decision to IoT originators in their framework on-chip (SoC) advancement venture. Designers can now effectively execute secure, holistic IoT arrangements, empowering them to concentrate more on center item separation and quickening time-to-showcase.
Gus Yeung, VP, GM and Fellow, Physical Design Group, Arm, quoted, “The promise of a world transformed by a trillion connected devices is not far in the future, but for IoT devices to scale we must continue to put a range of technology options in front of designers to test and evaluate. This collaboration has yielded a true end-to-end solution that ensures IoT designers can prototype their product designs from device-to-data security.”
With respect to past Musca solutions, the Musca-S1 test chip board now incorporates testing and evaluation of new eMRAM technology for reliable, low-power and secure device improvement through secure memory usage.
Musca-S1 test chip exhibits a mix of on-chip power control, Samsung Foundry’s Reverse Body Biasing (RBB) and eMRAM non-volatile memory control shutdown, taking into consideration testing and testing of new classes of highly energy-efficient, controlled IoT devices.
By merging Arm IP and programming arrangements on a single board, IoT planners can test and evaluate Arm’s end-to-end secure IoT arrangement, exhibiting energy-efficient effective and secure IoT at scale. Also, the Musca-S1 test chip load up can additionally diminish expenses and time-to-showcase by giving designers the adaptability to repurpose the reference plan for future items.
