ARM and Carbon expand partnership
Carbon Design Systems announced support for the latest ARM technology, and that it will create and deliver virtual models for the ARM CortexA57 and Cortex-A53 processors, as well as CoreLink CCN-504 system intellectual property (IP).
The models will enable architectural optimization, system performance analysis and pre-silicon software development. As part of the long-standing agreement, ARM will supply Carbon with register transfer level (RTL) and ARM Fast Models for its recently announced Cortex-A57 and Cortex-A53 processors, as well as the CoreLink CCN-504 cache coherent network. Carbon already supports the Mali-T628 GPU. Carbon will use the technology to deliver 100% accurate virtual models, as well as Carbon Performance Analysis Kits (CPAKs) capable of booting Android or Linux in seconds, while enabling a swap to a 100% accurate model at any breakpoint. "Designers using ARM Cortex-A50 series processors, CoreLink System IP and Mali GPUs, need high quality models to optimize their chips for lower risk and faster time to market," said John Cornish, executive vice president and general manager, System Design Division, ARM. "Accurate models from Carbon will help enable companies to deliver high-performance, low-power systems including servers and leading-edge mobile computing devices." "Working together with ARM, we have enabled companies to ship billions of ARM Powered devices," added Rick Lucier, president and CEO at Carbon. "With this partnership expansion, Carbon is enabling new generations of designs to be refined, optimized and integrated well in advance of silicon." Availability 100% accurate models of the ARM Cortex-A57 processor and Mali-T628 GPU are available today from Carbon's IP Exchange web portal for select early access partners. A CPAK for the Cortex-A57 processor is also available, which includes a CoreLink CCI-400 and bare metal initialization software to further accelerate integration efforts. Additional models and CPAKs including support for big.LITTLE™ processing, with the Cortex-A53 processor and CoreLink CCN-504 as well as Linux, will be available over the coming months. Users can be informed of availability automatically by subscribing to the desired model at Carbon IP Exchange.
