Designers of today’s telecommunication products such as cellular phones, wireless, and networking devices are facing a rapidly growing system complexity. Driven by the advances in semiconductor technology and the need for new telecommunication applications, the amount of functionality that is realized on a SOC is increasing enormously. The architecture for these applications are truly heterogeneous multiprocessor including hardware/software, and digital/analog parts.
