DesignWare Hybrid IP Prototyping Kits

Accelerate IP Prototyping & Integration for ARM-based Designs

The Synopsys DesignWare® Hybrid IP Prototyping Kits pre-integrate a Virtualizer™ Development Kit (VDK) and a DesignWare IP Prototyping Kit to accelerate IP prototyping, software development and integration of DesignWare IP in 64-bit ARM®-based designs. Hybrid IP Prototyping Kits enable designers to accelerate hardware/software integration and full system validation, thus reducing the overall product design cycle. The included Linaro® Linux® software stack, reference drivers, and pre-verified DesignWare IP reference design allow users to start implementing and validating IP in an SoC context in minutes.

The Synopsys DesignWare Hybrid IP Prototyping Kits are comprised of:

  • DesignWare IP Prototyping Kit, including an FPGA-based HAPS®-DX system and DesignWare IP reference design
  • HAPS UMR PCIe bus
  • DesignWare VDK for ARMv8 Base Platform

DesignWare Hybrid IP Prototyping Kits for 64-bit ARM-Based Designs

Watch how the DesignWare Hybrid IP Prototyping Kits combine the benefits of virtual prototyping and FPGA-based prototyping to speed development of DesignWare IP in 64-bit ARM-based designs.

The Hybrid IP Prototyping Kits accelerate software integration and validation of Synopsys DesignWare IP by enabling software development, validation, code porting, software debug, and optimization. The Hybrid IP Prototyping Kits provide software engineers with an ideal, ready-to-use solution for efficient coding in a virtual ARMv8 platform. Synopsys' Hybrid IP Prototyping Kits enhance software stack validation through high-speed processor execution using SystemC models. It allows connection to real-world interfaces via analog PHYs through the DesignWare IP Prototyping Kit. In addition, designers can change the IP configuration with the included Fast Iteration Flow to start optimizing software with the actual interface IP configuration used in the SoC.

DesignWare Hybrid IP Prototyping Kits are currently available for USB 3.0 Host and Device IP. Please contact Synopsys for information on additional protocols in development.
