Synopsys offers a comprehensive portfolio of IP, tools and software to accelerate the deployment of highly-efficient embedded processors and DSPs in SoCs.
The ARC Processors can be tailored to meet the specific performance, power and area requirements of applications in a variety of markets segments, including mobile, IoT, digital home, automotive, industrial and storage applications.
The DesignWare® ARC® Processor IP solution consists of proven ARC 32-bit processor cores, audio processors and codecs, operating systems and development tools. ARC Processor cores are highly configurable so they can be tailored to meet the performance, power and area requirements of each target application. The extensible instruction set gives designers the ability to define their own custom instructions that implement hardware accelerators to dramatically improve application-specific performance, while reducing power consumption and memory requirements. ARC Processor IP is supported by a complete and integrated development tool suite, including tools for configuration, design, simulation and software development. DesignWare ARC processors are also supported by a variety of 3rd-party tools, operating systems and middleware from leading industry vendors, including members of the ARC Access Program.
In addition, ARC processors are components of DesignWare IP Subsystems, pre-verified and configurable hardware and software IP solutions that offer SoC-ready functionality to ease integration into SoCs.
Synopsys also offers ASIP Designer for automating the design and implementation of application-specific instruction-set processors (ASIPs). ASIP Designer enables designers to create custom processors and programmable hardware accelerators for specialized processing requirements.
