Discrete Memories Trade Off with ASIC Cells
ISD Magazine (USA)
Component selection is all about making hard decisions when determining what parts best suit your system needs." Common trade-offs include price vs. performance and integration vs. time-to-market. System-on-a-chip is a concept that is often discussed, written about and dreamed about. However, the realities of system design reveal flaws in the theoretical search for greater integration. To the first order, from a performance standpoint, integration is usually best. However, from a density and time-to-market standpoint, a discrete solution is often the better choice. A perfect example that illustrates these concepts can be found in the area of true dual-ported memory.
