Kontron introduced the SMARC Starterkit. The ready-to-use kit enables developers to get started with embedded ARM processors. The Kontron SMARC Starterkit includes a sturdy transport case, has all the cables already connected and is equipped with all the necessary components, including a display and power supply. All documentation is provided on a USB drive. The Kontron kit is available now.
ARM and Cadence Design Systems teamed together to create a solution that uses the Cadence Encounter digital platform to optimize ARM POP intellectual property (IP) technology for the Cortex-A9 processor on the TSMC 40LP process, including ultra low threshold voltage (uLVT). The combined solution is available for license from ARM to accelerate the implementation of ARM processors.
Carbon Design Systems and Cadence Design Systems announced the availability of a Carbon Performance Analysis Kit. The CPAK accelerates the intellectual property (IP) benchmark process. The Carbon/Cadence CPAK is available now from Carbon’s IP Exchange web portal. Ported CoreMark benchmarking software is available from coremark.org.
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.
