Hardware Design & Verification for ARM Powered® Products

ARM+Synopsys

ARM and Synopsys collaborate to enable design and verification of SoCs based on ARM® processors and the ARM AMBA® protocols. Designers can quickly create subsystems based on the ARM AMBA 2, AMBA 3 AXI and AMBA 4 AXI ACE Lite™ protocols using Synopsys' full suite of configurable fabric IP and peripherals as well as the coreAssembler tool to automate block configuration and assembly.

Synopsys Platform Architect allows designers to analyze and tune the performance of interconnect and memory subsystems based on the ARM AMBA protocols. To enable more rapid and productive verification of ARM-based SoCs, Synopsys and ARM have collaborated on many initiatives, including: SystemVerilog, verification methodology, simulation performance, low power verification, debug and verification IP for AMBA interconnect.
