PARIS Carbon Design Systems (Acton, Mass.) has released virtual models for ARM Mali Graphic Processor Units (GPUs).
Carbon said this new generation of ARM models contain transaction-level model (TLM)-2.0 interfaces so as to confer flexibility for architectural exploration, firmware development and application software development.
Models execute seamlessly with Fast Models from ARM as part of a system prototype and "quickly" boot an operating system such as Linux or Android, the company claimed.
The models, including the Mali-200 and Mali-400MP, are compiled directly from the ARM register transfer level (RTL) code and are implementation accurate, Carbon noted.
