SoC Subsystem Manager - SSM™
Adaptive SoC Operations Using Policy Based System Control
Network devices often include “tap points” dispersed across the network’s flows that collect analytics for monitoring and adapting the network’s behavior according to the actual usage, priority, and type of content passing through it. Policies such as Quality of Service (QoS), Policy Based Routing (PBR), and even Call Admission Control (CAC) can then be applied based on the analytics that form the policies for the adaptation.
As the complexity of SoC operations grow, they too are more resembling networks. For example, the concept of distributed caches with coherency, recently introduced as an innovation in SoC interconnect technology, resembles the queues in a network device. But where are the equivalent QoS or PBR “policies” for the SoC that are present in networks and provide the key adaptive decision making components?
ChipStart’s SSM represents a control plane for SoCs that operates based on software policies. SSM is a key subsystem IP component that can be added to any SoC to provide the key missing components to enable adaptive SoC operations.
