ARM Adds Tools for Embedded and IoT Developers

ARM will offer simplified and expedited access to EDA tooling and design environments from Cadence and Mentor Graphics. The partnership builds on the benefits of free access to ARM Cortex-M0 processor IP offered through the DesignStart portal, which offers SoC designers free access to ARM Cortex-M0 processor IP for design, simulation and prototyping with the option to buy a simplified and standardized $40,000 fast track license.

ARM said the addition of Cadence and Mentor Graphics tools for DesignStart users accelerates the development of custom SoCs for embedded and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

“ARM’s DesignStart portal, with its convenient access to the Cortex-M0 package and its low-cost path to commercialization, is already making it easier for start-ups and OEMs to create embedded and mixed-signal SoCs,” said Nandan Nayampally, vice president of marketing and strategy, CPU group, ARM. “Simplifying access to EDA tools from Cadence and Mentor Graphics will further spur rapid innovation, creating a fast path to production silicon for companies looking to deliver an embedded or connected IoT product.”
