Cadence Design Systems Inc. and ARM Announce Strategic IP Interoperability Agreement
Mar 18 15
Cadence Design Systems Inc. and ARM announced the signing of a broad Intellectual Property Interoperability Agreement. This multiyear agreement provides reciprocal access to relevant IP portfolios from the Cadence IP Group and ARM. Additionally, the agreement grants both companies rights to manufacture test chips containing Cadence IP and ARM IP and to provide development platforms to customers. The ability to test the IP interoperability in silicon is intended to enable Cadence and ARM to optimize performance and interoperability within systems on chip while accelerating time to market for customers in markets such as mobile, consumer, networking, storage, automotive and the Internet of Things. The IP Interoperability Agreement covers existing and future ARM Cortex processors, ARM Mali GPUs, ARM CoreLink system IP, ARM Artisan physical IP, and ARM POP IP; Cadence Design IP including cores for PCI Express, MIPI, USB, HDMI, DisplayPort, Ethernet, analog, DDR/LPDDR PHY and multiple other memory and storage protocols. This agreement expands upon the successful EDA Technology Access and EDA Subscription Agreements ARM signed with Cadence last year to further enable customers' designs to reach peak performance and power efficiency. Through expanded collaboration, Cadence and ARM are able to develop and deliver solutions that enable customers to rapidly design optimized high-performance ARM-based SoCs and speed time to market for complete systems. This new agreement allows customers of both companies to get to market faster with pre-integrated IP solutions and continue pushing the envelope on low-power and high-performance SoC design.
ARM Ltd. Unveils New 32-Bit Cortex-M Processor
Sep 26 14
ARM Ltd. has unveiled a new 32-bit Cortex-M processor. The ARM Cortex-M7 is targeted at high-end embedded applications used in next generation vehicles, connected devices, and smart homes and factories. Early licensees of the Cortex-M7 processor include Atmel, Freescale and ST Microelectronics. The Cortex-M7 achieves an impressive 5 CoreMark/MHz. This performance allows the Cortex-M7 to deliver a combination of high performance and digital signal control functionality that will enable MCU silicon manufacturers to target highly demanding embedded applications while keeping development costs low. Expected uses of Cortex-M7 include smart control systems employed in a range of applications such as motor control, industrial automation, advanced audio, image processing, a variety of connected vehicle applications and other Internet of Things (IoT) uses. Enabling faster processing of audio and image data and voice recognition, the benefits delivered by the Cortex-M7 processor will be immediately apparent to users. The core also provides the same C-friendly programmer's model and is binary compatible with existing Cortex-M processors. Ecosystem and software compatibility enables simple migration from any existing Cortex-M core to the new Cortex-M7. System designers can therefore take advantage of extensive code reuse which in turn offers lower development and maintenance costs.
Huawei Technologies Inks ARMv8 License Agreement with ARM Ltd
Sep 5 13
Huawei Technologies declared that license agreement has been inked with ARM Ltd. on ARMv8 architecture. Huawei Technologies will be able to use ARMv8 to design its own microprocessor cores, which strengthened cooperation between both sides that has lasted for nine years. In 2012, Huawei Technologies became a major partner of Cortex-A57 processor based on ARMv8.
