Cadence: tool suites optimized for Arm Cortex-A75 and Cortex-A55 CPUs and Mali-G72 GPU

Cadence Design Systems announced that its full-flow digital and signoff tools and the Cadence Verification Suite have been optimized to support Arm Cortex-A75 and Cortex-A55 CPUs, based on Arm DynamIQ technology, and the Arm Mali-G72 GPU, the latest offerings from Arm for premium mobile, machine learning, and consumer devices. To accelerate the adoption of Arm’s latest processors, Cadence delivered new 7nm-ready Rapid Adoption Kits (RAKs) for the Cortex-A75 and the Cortex-A55 CPUs, which include the DynamIQ Shared Unit that provides a shared level 3 cache between the CPUs, and a 7nm-ready RAK for the Mali-G72 GPU.

The Cadence RAKs accelerate physical implementation, signoff, and verification of 7nm designs, allowing designers to deliver mobile and consumer devices to market faster. With the delivery of the new RAKs, Cadence is also providing specialized technical support for Arm IP implementation based on the deep collaboration between Arm and Cadence over many years.

The Cadence digital and signoff tools have been configured to provide optimal power, performance and area results using the RAKs, which include scripts, an example floorplan, and documentation for Arm’s 7nm IP libraries. The comprehensive Cadence RTL-to-GDS flow incorporates the following digital and signoff tools in the RAKs: Innovus Implementation System, Genus Synthesis Solution, Conformal LEC, Conformal Low Power, Tempus Timing Signoff Solution, Voltus IC Power Integrity Solution, Quantus QRC Extraction Solution.

The Cadence Verification Suite t has also been optimized for Arm-based designs including JasperGold Formal Verification Platform, Xcelium Parallel Logic Simulation,            Palladium Z1 Enterprise Emulation Platform, Protium S1 FPGA-Based Prototyping Platform, vManager Planning and Metrics, Perspec System Verifier, Indago Debug Platform, Cadence Verification Workbench, Cadence Interconnect Workbench, Verification IP Portfolio.
