Low-end processor cores can be utilized in various SoC applications including IoT, wireless communication, and machine learning. In this short talk, we will introduce how we designed some low-end integer cores applied to some applications such as deeply embedded IoT and WLAN MAC Soc, and also introduce the basic design of embedded cores for neural networks.
Part II: The application-specific design for signal processing applications tends to necessitate multi-disciplinary knowledge on system, algorithm, architecture and circuit levels. In this talk, we will introduce our application-specific design approaches for various signal processing applications. In addition, we discuss several design challenges involved in system-on-a-chip (SoC) design for neural networks, regarding how to customize the on-chip bus architecture.
Prof. Fitzgerald Sungkyung Park took his Ph.D. degree in electronics engineering from Seoul National University, Korea, in 2002. He worked for Samsung Electronics from 2002 to 2004, joined Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) from 2004 to 2006, and worked for Ericsson, Inc., USA, from 2006 to 2009, where he developed mixed-signal circuits for radio transceivers. In 2009, he joined the faculty of Pusan National University, where he has worked on low-end processors and SoC for IoT and other applications.
Prof. Chester Park received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Korea, in 2006. After about two years with Samsung Electronics Inc., Giheung, Korea, he joined Ericsson Research, USA, where he developed various signal processing algorithms for wireless communications. Since 2013, he has been with Konkuk University, Seoul, Korea, working on hardware accelerator design for signal processing algorithms.
