The RMX embedded, RHX real-time and RPX host processors address a wide range of applications across segments such as automotive, industrial, consumer, storage, and networking. Offering a broad range of processing solutions allows customers to address varying performance requirements and scalability.
One example of ARC-based differentiation leverages more than a decade of expertise delivering processor IP optimized for automotive safety. The safety enabled ARC-V “FS” processors are designed from the outset to achieve the highest levels of functional safety as defined by the ISO 26262 standard, both for the systematic development as well as providing hardware safety mechanisms to support ASIL B and ASIL D risk management levels. They are also compliant with practices defined by the IS0 21434 automotive cybersecurity standard. With the PPA and functional safety benefits ARC-V processors provide, along with Synopsys’ expertise in security and safety, automotive design teams have a robust foundation upon which to develop smarter, more autonomous systems for tomorrow’s vehicles.
Synopsys ARC-V processors are supported by the growing RISC-V ecosystem, giving developers a menu of choices to build a flexible environment with all the required development tools. Synopsys’ embedded hardware and software partners provide development solutions for ARC processor-based systems across a wide array of market segments. The ARC-V processors are also supported by the commercial-quality ARC MetaWare Development Toolkit, which builds upon a 25-year legacy of providing complete solutions providing all the components needed to develop, debug and optimize embedded software.
