On Wednesday 18th April a delegation from Moortec, including CTO Oliver King made their way to the University of Southampton to support the ELEC6200 Group Deign Project Presentation Day.
The aim of the group design project is to encourage both innovation and engagement with the broader engineering context (financial, economic, social, environmental). The use of ‘real world’ engineering problems requires students to actively engage with their customers to determine the scope and requirements of their project, in order to provide a realistic simulation of the sort of challenges that they are likely to face as engineering graduates.
One of the projects focused on the recent collaboration work between Moortec & UltraSoC which involved integrating UltraSoC’s digital monitoring and optimization capabilities, with Moortec’s industry-leading PVT products this enables powerful, chip-wide infrastructure to improve SoC performance and reliability.
Moortec’s PVT sensor sub-systems are widely used thoroughout the industy to allow intelligent control of system clock frequencies and voltage levels within supply domains, by sensing die temperature, logic speed and voltage supply levels while the device is in-service. UltraSoC’s on-chip monitoring and analytics architecture allows complementary monitoring and analysis in the digital domain, enabling non-intrusive, wire-speed capture and logging of information about the real-world operation of SoCs.
Established in 2005 Moortec provides compelling embedded sub-system IP solutions for Process, Voltage & Temperature (PVT) monitoring, targeting advanced node CMOS technologies from 40nm down to 7nm. Moortec’s in-chip sensing solutions support the semiconductor design community’s demands for increased device reliability and enhanced performance optimization, enabling schemes such as DVFS, AVS and power management control systems. Moortec also provides excellent support for IP application, integration and device test during production.
UltraSoC is an independent provider of SoC infrastructure that enables rapid development of embedded systems based on advanced SoC devices. The company is headquartered in Cambridge, United Kingdom. For more information visit www.ultrasoc.com
