The DesignWare ARC 700 family includes the ARC 710D, ARC 725D and ARC 770D processors, which are highly configurable so that each instance can be tailored to achieve the optimum balance of performance, power and area, enabling SoC designers to optimize the processors for their specific target applications. The ARC 700 processors are also extensible, allowing designers to add their own custom instructions to dramatically increase performance.
Optional DSP and floating point unit (FPU) capabilities enable designers to address a wide range of processing requirements with a single host application processor. Using a single processor simplifies the design, lowers silicon-area and enables faster debug of the chip.
DesignWare ARC processor cores are supported by a variety of 3rd-party tools, operating systems and middleware from leading industry vendors, including members of the ARC Access Program.
