Synopsys' DesignWare® ARC® Processor IP includes the ARC HS, ARC 700, ARC 600 and ARC EM families of 32-bit processor cores, as well as the ARC Audio solution.
The ARC cores are highly configurable to meet the unique performance, power and area requirements of each target application. The extensible instruction set gives designers the ability to define custom instructions that implement proprietary hardware accelerators to dramatically improve application-specific performance while reducing power consumption and the amount of memory required. The ARC Audio family includes specialized audio processors combined with optimized codecs and media streaming framework for a complete audio IP solution.
ARC cores are also components of DesignWare IP Subsystems, pre-verified and configurable hardware and software IP solutions that offer SoC-ready functionality to ease integration into SoCs.
To accelerate the chip development cycle, Synopsys' ARC Processor IP is supported by a complete and integrated development tool suite, including tools for configuration, design, simulation and software development. DesignWare ARC processors are also supported by a variety of 3rd-party tools, operating systems and middleware from leading industry vendors, including members of the ARC Access Program.
