System on Chip Seminar
Paul Master, QuickSilver Technology
To support the future Wireless Internet, a mobile terminal platform is required whose application and network capabilities can be upgraded on the fly to instantly meet the needs/desires of a changing consumer marketplace and the demand for capacity improvements from the operator.
Adaptive computing technology, as implemented in QuickSilver's Adaptive Computing Machine (ACM), is a key enabler to a flexible application and air interface environment. Embedded directly into a next-generation wireless/mobile device, the ACM adapts its architecture on-the-fly, to create a new and specific hardware engine for each task, thus enabling a single mobile device to perform a variety of functions. By downloading software applications - that include hardware descriptions - from the Internet, a handheld device can upgrade/update its capability to add new features or upgrade the air interface.
The ACM is a pivotal technology for Software Defined Radio, enabling a consumer to roam seamlessly throughout the world, staying "connected" via the same single mobile device.
This presentation will describe the features and benefits of adaptive
