At the Cadence booth, Realtek Semiconductor showed off an “always-on, always-listening” controller for mobile devices leveraging a Cadence Tensilica HiFi DSP.
Using Tensilica HiFi Cores with Realtek’s ALC5511/12 controllers to transform voice –trigger technology .
In the modern SoC era, verification is no longer a post-design activity. The verification strategy must be planned much earlier in the design cycle; otherwise the verification closure can become a never ending problem.
Moreover, verification which appears to be complete may actually be incomplete because of undetected issues which can resurface during tape-out or even in the field after fabrication.
