National Seminar on System on Chip (NSSOC - 2003)

27th Nov. to 29th Nov. 2003 - A Report

 

The fifth address on ‘Challenges to SOC designers for wireless communication applications’, by Dr.M.H.Kori, Technical Director, Bell Labs., Lucent Technologies, Bangalore outlined the phenomenal growth of wireless mobile communication, wireless communication  standards, processing limitations within the constraints of size, power consumption and cost. He linked the technical advancements to the challenges it is posing to SOC designers. He concluded with examples of such advancements like 3G standards, Wi-Fi, Bell labs Blast, Software Radio developments and their dependence on SOC for their success.

The third day started with ‘Impact on nanometre related timing failures on at speed testing’, by Dr.C.P.Ravikumar, Senior Technology Specialist, Texas Instruments, Bangalore . His talk introduced the topic of At-speed testing and brought out the difficulties of carrying out this in DSM technologies, the timing constraints and the path delays due to IR drop. He discussed the many aspects of testing – a very significant topic for M.Tech. VLSI design course.

 

This was followed by a talk on “Emerging trends in 4G wireless technologies”, by Dr.S.Lakshmipathy Sondur, Intel, Bangalore wherein he specified the role of wireless communications in telecommunications industry, evolving from simple speech based to data communications. The presentation included some of the key technological advances and how the usage methods that are now emerging as core components for wireless communication. He explained in particular the implementation of 802.11n, and multiple input output systems. The third talk on ‘Embedded systems design’, by Dr. Swapna Banarjee, Professor, IIT Kharagpur explained the growing need for portable embedded computing devices which leads to new SOC architectures intended for embedded systems.

 

The design aspects by taking the biomedical environment as a platform, the system level design, hardware software co-design methodologies were described. The finale to the event was a panel discussion on topics in the area of SoC in the Indian context.
