High-level IP integration
shortens design time
ARM926EJ-S System CoreWare intellectual property has been added to LSI Logic's IP library
The ARM926EJ-S System CoreWare IP integrates multiple CoreWare modules to create a complete system, thereby reducing design time, complexity and risk for LSI Logic RapidChip Platform ASIC and cell-based ASIC customers. In addition to targeting the communications, consumer and storage markets, this offering also provides IP for designers in markets such as security, consumer electronics, industrial, instrumentation and imaging with the ability to get their products manufactured quickly and at low cost.
The ARM926EJ-S System CoreWare IP is available for use with the RapidChip Integrator, RapidChip Foundation and RapidChip Xtreme slices and provides a seamless migration path to standard cell ASICs.
LSI Logic is already engaged with multiple customers who are using ARM926EJ-S System CoreWare IP in RapidChip-based designs.
"Using the ARM926EJ-S System CoreWare IP in RapidChip has allowed us to focus our efforts on portions of the SoC where we add the most value for our applications", said David E Gross, President and CEO of Cryptek.
"This approach has significantly reduced our overall design and validation effort to maintain an aggressive time-to-market schedule".
"System CoreWare solutions provide a much higher level of IP integration for RapidChip customers", said Rafi Kedem, Senior Director, CoreWare Technology Group at LSI Logic.
"System CoreWare IP can cut SoC development time by as much as 50% by leveraging predefined, preverified systems and enabling customers to focus their engineering effort on adding value to their particular end applications".
The ARM926EJ-S System CoreWare IP consists of proven CoreWare IP functions such as the ARM926EJ-S core, Ethernet controller, vectored interrupt controller, UARTs, GPIOs, IIC and an external bus interface unit.
Expansion amba AHB ports allow customers to easily integrate their own logic or additional cores from LSI Logic's extensive CoreWare library.
For example, the multiported DDR SDRAM controller can be used seamlessly in conjunction with the ARM926 System CoreWare IP.
In addition, this System CoreWare IP provides a fully integrated proven CPU subsystem capable of running popular operating systems like Linux or VX Works.
To significantly reduce software development time, LynuxWorks provides BlueCat Linux OS and software driver support for the ARM926EJ-S System CoreWare IP.
Additionally, Virtio Corp provides a virtual platform for fast full-function software emulation of the ARM926EJ-S System CoreWare IP.
Customers can extend this virtual platform with their own logic and use it to develop their application software even before their SoC silicon becomes available.
LSI Logic's extensive library of CoreWare IP offers proven, easy to integrate, performance-leading cores and system solutions, including GigaBlaze and HyperPHY high-speed standards-compliant serdes, ARM and MIPS processors and associated systems, licensable ZSP DSP cores, processor peripherals and Amba on-chip-bus structures, USB cores, memory PHYs and controllers, Ethernet MAC and PHY cores, PCI Express, XGXS, SPI4.2 and other protocol layer IP.
