Designing a custom SoC: 9 next steps after downloading your Arm IP
Step-by-step guide to designing a system-on-chip (SoC), from initial IP download, to design, software creation and commercialization.
A look inside the Cortex-A5 CPU, available through DesignStart
Arm expanded its fast-access IP program to include the Linux-capable Arm Cortex-A5 processor. Find out the four big aspects that make Cortex-A5 DesignStart stand out and what is included in the program.
7 reasons why fast, low-cost access to a Linux-capable, Arm CPU is great news
By adding Cortex-A5 to the DesignStart program, developers now have fast, low-cost access to a high-performing, ultra-efficient CPU that is ideal for a wide range of embedded and IoT applications.
Expanding Innovation: Bringing Arm to Programmable FPGA
DesignStart FPGA will address growth in application-optimized designs by providing access to Arm Cortex-M1 and Cortex-M3 soft processor IP for integration with Xilinx Vivado Design Suite.
Software code coverage with Arm Cortex-M3 DesignStart
This blog shares a practical example of how to ensure embedded software is fully exercised and tested, creating rudimentary instruction coverage and source line coverage for software running on the Arm Cortex-M3 DesignStart eval package.
New online training course - DesignStart Cortex-M3, An introduction to Armv7-M
Following on from the launch of our new online training service, we have recently published a new video-based training course for developing software for the Arm DesignStart Cortex-M3 processor.
FAQ: Is Quartus Prime Partial Reconfiguration license required to customize/build Arm DesignStart FPGA image?
Older versions of Cortex-M0 DesignStart required obtaining an Intel Altera Quartus Prime partial reconfiguration license. However this is no longer necessary with the latest DesignStart packages
