DAC 2017 ARM/TSMC/Synopsys Breakfast

Collaborating to enable design with Arm’s latest processors (Cortex-A75, Cortex-A55), TSMC 16-nm and 7-nm processes and Synopsys’ Design Platform

DAC 2017 ARM/TSMC/Synopsys Breakfast

Arm, Synopsys and TSMC kicked off DAC 2017 with an event to share the results of their collaboration to enable design on TSMC 16-nm and 7-nm process technology with the new Arm® Cortex®-A75 and Cortex-A55 processors and the Synopsys Design Platform. In this event video, they introduce the new Synopsys QuickStart Implementation Kits (QIKs) for the Arm cores that take advantage of Arm POP™ technology and Synopsys tools, and the

collaborative design enablement for TSMC 16-nm and 7-nm process technology. HiSilicon concludes the video by describing their impressive mobile product success designed by taking advantage of the Arm/TSMC/Synopsys collaboration.
