ARM and Carbon expand partnership to include Cortex-A57 and Cortex-A53 processors, CoreLink system IP

USA: Carbon Design Systems announced support for the latest ARM technology, and that it will create and deliver virtual models for the ARM Cortex-A57 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 percent 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 percent accurate model at any breakpoint. All models and CPAKs will be available exclusively from Carbon's IP Exchange web portal.
