ARM and Synopsys, Inc. Announce Technical Webcast Featuring Joint System-Level Design Solution for ARM Powered Applications

ARM (NASDAQ: ARMHY)(LSE: ARM), the industry's leading provider of 16/32-bit embedded RISC processor solutions, and Synopsys, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNPS), the world leader in semiconductor design software, today announced a technical webcast featuring a joint system-level design solution that enables earlier software development and verification of ARM Powered® systems-on-chips (SoCs).

WHAT: This free, in-depth, technical webcast will illustrate a joint solution for designing and analyzing system-level architectures that significantly reduces the design cycle of ARM Powered SoCs. The system-level design solution is based on ARM® RealView® Model Library SystemC™ processor models, corresponding Synopsys DesignWare® AMBA™ SystemC transaction-level bus models and the Synopsys System Studio system-level design tool. Attendees will learn how to create transaction-level models for AMBA interconnect-based designs and discover how to concurrently develop the SoC hardware and software. This webcast will address how ARM technology-certified SystemC processor models and Synopsys' integrated verification solutions based on System Studio, VCS® and Vera® provide a comprehensive system-level solution that helps reduce SoC design time.
