What is the eSPI Protocol and How Does it Improve Upon LPC?

Background of LPC

Low Pin Count, or LPC, was introduced by Intel in 1998 as an interface to connect low-bandwidth devices to the CPU. It had replaced its Industry Standard Architecture (ISA) counterpart improving the data rate transfer from 8 MHz up to 33 MHz. LPC transfers data using a 4-bit bus and features an architecture usi...

What is the Difference Between RAM and ROM?

RAM and ROM are both types of computer memory used to store data, code, and other information that is used by the CPU to operate in real time. Embedded systems include both of these types of memory to perform certain tasks, each with their own individual purpose, advantages, and disadvantages. In this article, we’ll provide backgr...

Differences Between FPGA vs ASIC – Advantages and Disadvantages

FPGAs and ASICs are both types of integrated circuits that are often compared when implementing electronic product design. FPGAs and ASICS are similar in their circuit design flow that consists of arrays of logic cells that can be programmed using hardware description language. However, these two technologies differ in multiple wa...
