CoWare ARM Model Library Supports Cortex-A5, Cortex-M4 Processors

CoWare’s SystemC-based software development solution now supports Fast Models from ARM for Cortex-A5 and Cortex-M4 processor IP. The CoWare software development solutions already include support for Fast Models from ARM for the Cortex-A9, Cortex-A8, Cortex-R4 and Cortex-M3 processors. The ARM Cortex IA Model Integration Library to enable usage of Cortex-A5, Cortex-A8, Cortex-A9, Cortex-R4, Cortex M3 and Cortex-M4 Fast Models from ARM in CoWare Virtual Platform and CoWare Platform Architect is available from CoWare now.

The ARM Cortex Instruction-Accurate Model Integration Library from CoWare supports Fast Models from ARM for Cortex-A5 and Cortex-M4 processors. The enhanced offering enables CoWare to address the IP needs for engineers in mobile, consumer and automotive markets. Applications in these markets typically require multicore designs.

Software developers using the CoWare Virtual Platform solution for Cortex-A5 and Cortex-M4 processors have the benefit of debug synchronization along with debug and analysis visibility across the entire system. These capabilities, combined with the reproducibility and predictability of software behavior using virtual platforms, boost productivity of software development on multicore designs. Designers have been reporting 5X reduction in software development time using the CoWare Virtual Platform solution with the Fast Models from ARM.
