Synopsys offers a series of ARC®-based development and evaluation systems for software development, code porting, software debugging and profiling.
The ARC EM Starter Kit provides a platform for rapid software development for ARC EM processors. The kit is ready for use "out-of-the-box" and enables designers to immediately begin writing code for their design. It features a Xilinx Spartan®-6 LX45 FPGA, an on-board 125 MHz clock generator, 128 MB of DDR3 memory and 16 MB of flash memory.
The ARC Software Development Platforms are complete, standalone hardware and software platforms that include ARC processors, peripherals, pre-built Linux and MQX operating systems, device drivers, and application examples, enabling designers to start software development prior to SoC availability. In addition, they have been built using licensable DesignWare IP including USB, Ethernet, UART and other common interfaces, providing a rich set of peripherals that can be implemented in an SoC. The ARC AXS101 Software Development Platform supports the ARC 625D, 770D, EM4, EM6 and AS221BD processors. The ARC AXS102 Software Development Platform supports the ARC HS34 and HS36 processors and is ideal for the development of SoCs for high-performance embedded applications.
