DesignWare ARC 600 Processor Core Family 


Synopsys' DesignWare® ARC® 600 Family of 32-bit RISC processor cores are optimized for embedded applications and DSP tasks where high performance and low power consumption is required. To address a wide range of processing needs, the DesignWare ARC 600 family includes flexible memory options such as single-cycle Closely Coupled Memories (CCMs) for instructions and data, as well as configurable I-cache and D-cache.

The DesignWare ARC 600 family offers a broad range of processor solutions that enable system-on-chip (SoC) designers to create a wide range of embedded microprocessors that are optimized for their specific target applications. These solutions include the DesignWare ARC 601, ARC 605, ARC 610D and ARC 625D.

Synopsys' ARC processors have been used by more than 170 customers worldwide who collectively ship more than 700 million ARC-based chips annually. The DesignWare ARC processors are extendable, allowing designers to add their own custom instructions that dramatically increase performance.

DesignWare ARC processor cores are supported by a variety of 3rd-party tools, operating systems and middleware from leading industry vendors, including members of the ARC Access Program.

  • Products
  • ARC 601
  • Compact, low-power, cacheless 32-bit processor more

Strong combination of small size, low power and high performance for embedded and microcontroller applications.

  • ARC 605
  • Compact, cacheless 32-bit processor with power management unit more

Ideal solution for a wide range of embedded control and computing functions within system-on-chips (SoCs). The core is designed for hard real-time processing, where high speed and deterministic response are required. Optionally, custom instruction extensions may be incorporated to achieve application performance levels unattainable with fixed architecture cores.

  • ARC 610D
  • Low-power, cacheless 32-bit processor with DSP capabilities more

Ideal for SoC applications that include conventional computation and signal processing algorithms. Designed for hard, real-time processing, where high-speed and deterministic response are required

  • ARC 625D
  • Low-power, 32-bit processor with DSP capabilities and I & D caches more

Full-featured, mid-range embedded core with best-in-class speed, die area and power characteristics. It is a complete processor solution for SoCs targeted at consumer, networking, automotive and other cost-sensitive markets. The core’s flexible, configurable memory architecture makes it ideal for RTOS-based applications.
