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 announced a TLM-2.0 solution for the AMBA protocol. The solution enables modeling the AMBA protocols with SystemC TLM2-0. The TLM-2.0 for the AMBA protocol solution will execute in any SystemC environment and contains no runtime licensing. Engineers can create models representing AMBA intellectual property (IP) blocks at any level of abstraction. The TLM-2.0 for the AMBA protocol solution is available for free from Carbon’s IP Exchange.
