Cloud native EDA tools & pre-optimized hardware platforms
The DesignWare® ARC® EM Family, based on the ARCv2 instruction set architecture (ISA) includes ARC EM4 and EM6, DSP-enhanced EMxD processors, and ASIL compliant EM functional safety processors.
The ultra-compact EM cores feature excellent code density, small size and very low power consumption, making them ideal for power-critical and area-sensitive embedded and deeply embedded applications.
The ARC EM processors are supported by a broad ecosystem of commercial and open-source tools, operating systems and middleware. This includes offerings from leading industry vendors who are members of the ARC Access Program as well as a comprehensive suite of free and open source software available through the embARC.org website.
