Redefining Chip Complexity in the SoC Era

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

I am old enough to recall the Pentium versus AMD processor rivalry of 1990’s. Back then, the chip complexity was all about number of transistors and clock speed. More and more complex Pentiums were reeling out of factory at a pace, faster than we replaced dress shirts in our closets!

In today’s SoC, complexity is not just about clock speed or number of transistors packed in tiny wafers. We don’t hear much about clock speed of processor in the Apple iPhone, or the Samsung Galaxy 4 smartphone, do we?

Are we building less complex chips? Have our applications become simpler?

Quite the opposite. (more…)
