12:30PM EDT - Q&A Time

12:31PM EDT - Q: Latency through NoC Access point? A: NoC is user programmable - can provide QoS and latency requirements on the NoC. The latency that is experienced is dependent on those settings. There's documentation on the NoC for specific scenarios in simulation and design

12:32PM EDT - A: Constraints on PL kernels for recompiles for moved them around? A: Have to place them in programmable logic patterns that are repeated. Similar constraints between devices. Need better documentation

12:33PM EDT - Q: Total die size? 92B? A: No comment on total die area. Applies to largest stacked silicon device

12:34PM EDT - Q: LPDDR5 support? A: No comment.

12:34PM EDT - Q: HBM bandwidth? A: Cannot comment at this point. Keep an eye on future announcements

12:36PM EDT - Q: Can external chiplets attach to NOC? A: Theory yes, but I don't think that any of them exist today

12:37PM EDT - That's a wrap. Next talk for me is the Tofino2 switch chip at 10:30am PT.
