An excellent ARM TechCon 2013 video on FD-SOI for designers is now posted on the Synopsys site. David Jacquet from ST shares the company’s FD-SOI approach to delivering optimized energy efficient solutions for the SoC market. Jacquet currently leads ST’s architecture activities for energy efficient high performance CPU/GPU implementations. In his presentation (click here to view it) entitled, “Energy Efficient Implementation of ARM® Cortex©-A57/-A53 Processor Cores in FD-SOI Process Technology”, he begins with with an overview of the FD-SOI process technology as an enabler for high performance / low power design. Highlights from the low power implementation and verification methodology developed with Synopsys, including results and best practices, are also presented. This is a technical presentation, covering ST’s process technology and ARM-core based SoC product roadmap. ARM TechCon is ranked one of the top three must-attend events in the embedded industry. Highly recommended viewing.
