Carbon Design Systems is accelerating the analysis, optimization and verification of system-on-chip (SoC) performance with their new Carbon Performance Analysis Kits (CPAK). The CPAK family for ARM Cortex processors includes reference hardware and software designs along with analysis and debug software for the Cortex-A9, Cortex-A15 and Cortex-A7 cores, and the ARM big.LITTLE subsystem. The CPAK Family for ARM Cortex A-Series Processors will be available in bare metal and Linux configurations in this quarter. Android configurations will be available in the second half of this year.
Ace Thought Technologies announced a multi-threaded software video decoder suite for ARM Cortex-A series of application processors. The multi-threaded video decoding suite enables high quality video solutions with HD resolution on Android smart-phones and tablets and on Apple iPhone and iPad devices. The scalable design of video decoder supports single, dual and quad-core application processors in a single library. Ace Thought Technologies’ video decoder suite is now available for licensing.
