DesignWare ARC Development Systems

DesignWare ARC Software Development Platforms

Ready-to-use extensible platforms with ARC processor, peripherals and comprehensive software package enables an early start to software development

Complete, Ready-to-Use Systems for Early Software Development

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 is a low-cost, versatile solution enabling rapid software development, software debugging, and profiling for the ARC EM Family of processors, including the EM4, EM6, EM5D, EM7D, EM9D and EM11D cores.

The ARC EM Software Development Platform (SDP) is a flexible platform for rapid software development on ARC EM processor-based subsystems. It supports ARC EM4, EM6, EM5D, EM7D, EM9D and EM11D cores as well as ARC EM-based subsystems.

The ARC IoT Development Kit is a versatile platform that includes the necessary hardware and software to accelerate software development and debugging of sensor fusion, voice recognition and face detection designs. The ARC IoT Development Kit includes a silicon implementation of the ARC Data Fusion IP Subsystem and a rich set of peripherals commonly used in IoT designs such as USB, UART, SPI, I2C, PWM, SDIO and ADCs.

The ARC AXS10x 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.
  • The ARC AXS103 Software Development Platform supports the ARC HS34, HS36, HS38, HS45D, HS47D and HS48 processors.

The ARC HS Development Kits are ready-to-use software development platforms that include a multicore ARC HS3x-based or ARC HS4xD-based chip, implemented in a TSMC 28HPM process, that integrates a wide range of interfaces including Ethernet, USB, SDIO, I2C, SPI, UART, and GPIO, as well as a GPU. The kits also feature an on-board WiFi and Bluetooth module. This combination of ARC HS processors and the comprehensive set of peripherals allow developers to build and debug complex software on a fully-featured hardware platform. Software support includes ARC Linux and the embARC Open Software Platform.
