Why platform-based design works better than a discrete IP approach

Fritz, David
October 2003
Portable Design;Oct2003, Vol. 9 Issue 10, p8
Points out the advantages of a platform-based design over the discrete Internet Protocol (IP) approach for designing systems on a chip (SoC) for embedded systems. Requirements of a discrete IP approach; Reduction of development time, cost, and overall design risk in using a platform-based design; Importance of the approach for designers of portable and short-cycle consumer systems.
