The DesignWare® ARC® HS36 Processor is a member of the high-speed 32-bit HS Processor Family, optimized for use in high-performance embedded applications. The HS36 Processor has support for up to 64KB of instruction and data cache and can be configured as a dual-core or quad-core for maximum performance.
The HS36 Processor is based on the highly-efficient ARCv2 instruction set architecture (ISA) and pipeline that deliver a high degree of performance efficiency and code density with minimal power and area for embedded applications. These ARC processors are ideally suited for applications such as SSD controllers, networking, medical, industrial and automotive systems, and many other high-end embedded applications.
ARC HS36 Processors are highly configurable and enable designers to tailor each instance on their SoC for the optimum balance of performance, power and area. User-defined instructions that enable the integration of a user’s proprietary hardware accelerators allow for further optimization of the processors to dramatically improve application-specific performance while reducing power consumption.
To minimize system-level latency and increase overall system performance, the HS36 Processor supports close coupled memories and direct mapping of peripherals, providing single-cycle access to other IP and memory blocks on the SoC. Native ARM® AMBA® AXI™ and AHB™ standard interfaces are configurable for 32-bit or 64-bit transactions to optimize throughput.
The HS36 Processors are supported by a robust ecosystem of software and hardware development tools, including the MetaWare compiler/debugger, the nSIM instruction set simulator, the MQX real-time operating system (RTOS), and third-party tools, operating systems and middleware from leading industry vendors through the ARC Access Program.
