Santa Clara, Calif.--May 24, 1999-Coware, Inc. (Santa Clara) and ARM (Cambridge, U.K.) announced an agreement that allows engineers to use the Coware N2C design system to develop thehardware and software for highly integrated systems based on ARM cores. As a member of ARM's EDA PartnershipProgram, Coware provides a design environment that makes it easy to build complex systems-on-chips (SOC) based onARM cores.
Coware N2C lets designers create a system-level virtual prototype--a reference platform to start software developmentmuch earlier, before the hardware is implemented as an ARM core-based SOC design.
As part of the agreement, Coware has enhanced its integration of the ARM7TDMI core with a new model that approaches100 percent cycle accuracy. Coware has also integrated the AMBA bus and the ARM9 family of processors.
Coware has integrated ARM's Coverification Simulator and Bus Interface model components of each supported ARMprocessor for distribution with Coware N2C at a price of $4,950 per license per year in the U.S., based upon thesubscription method of licensing software. Support for the ARM7TDMI core with the new cycle-accurate model and theAMBA bus is available now. Support for the ARM9 core will be available later this quarter.
