11:30am Improving Memory on the Edge Using Octal Serial Flash Cache 11:30AM - 12:20PM Babak Taheri, Silvaco show more Description With intelligence and data processing moving to the edge, the demand for local program memory is exploding. So how do you increase the program memory on a device without significantly increasing cost and power or by limiting performance? This presentation from Silvaco, Arm, and Adesto will explore and compare the options available to developers, and will look at whether technologies, such as Execute in Place and Flash Cache, can be used to solve this problem. The technical presentation will provide real-world comparison data and make recommendations so that developers can build products that meet the demands of tomorrow’s intelligent devices.

The developer must understand the cryptography involved and how to establish a public key infrastructure. Thankfully, Arm Mbed TLS has all of the functionality to create and process a chain of certificates that establishes a trusted relationship between a transmitter and a receiver. This session will detail the process of creating a custom certificate, the base messages needed and the mbed TLS APIs used in devices, who authenticate based on a public key infrastructure.

However, eNVM integration is a painful process for SoC designers, as they need to modify memory controllers and interface for different foundry and process technologies. To solve this problem, Arm has developed AMBA Generic Flash Bus interface standard (GFB) in collaboration with its partners. In order to focus on design innovation and not on hacking another memory controller, join this talk to learn how GFB can enable you to save development time, innovate more, and improve reusability.

Virtual prototyping enables the early and joint consideration of HW and SW, across multiple teams and companies, and even before RTL of all components becomes available. This in-depth technical presentation will show the complete flow, including the creation of an accurate virtual prototype as well as the usage for SW bring-up and joint HW/SW performance optimization. The flow will be illustrated by a demonstration of a real-live SSD controller SoC.
