Well, they dont have to pay royalties for using their own core and the external interface to the rest of the system utilizes AMBA, for which they have an implementation for other things already. So - the only cost to them is maintaining the ARC core. Now they can modify the core to their hearts content and thus gain benefit within the sub-system.

thank you Brain for the explanation...what is the reason for Synopsys pushing it since ARM pretty much dominanted that space? I would imagine Synopsys has to be desigining their IP to work with ARM...double effort?

ARC or Argonaut RISC Core was another English processor IP company that had reconfigurable processor core much like Tensillica's. They were acquired by Virage Logic which was then acquired by Synopsys in 2010.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
