3 Easy Ways to Accelerate Development of your Embedded SoC
The development of software, firmware, and hardware for embedded SoCs can sometimes be challenging because there are limited options for low cost embedded SoC development platforms. Many low cost starter kits feature a standard MCU which may not reflect the desired peripherals or connectivity for your development. There are many other methodologies to choose from: simulators, virtual prototypes, and larger, more complex FPGA-based development platforms—but these often present their own specific limitations. In this webinar we will show you 3 easy ways to accelerate your development time for your embedded SoC software with Synopsys' new ARC™ EM Starter Kit. We will show you how easy it is to get started with the ARC EM4 or ARC EM6 CPU IP cores and how you can easily add external sensors, peripherals and connectivity options using industry standard Pmod™ expansion connectors. You will see how the platform allows you to use free open source GNU tools or the full featured MetaWare tool chain.
This webinar will focus on:
- How to use the pre-configured EM4 and EM6 cores, integrated GPIO, I2C and SPI peripherals, ported MQX RTOS binary, peripheral drivers and example application code to enable an easy-to-use software development platform
- How to use the six 12-pin Digilent Pmod™ compatible expansion connectors to easily create an embedded SoC prototype system and/or demo platform
- Why the Synopsys DesignWare® ARC EM Processor family makes an unbeatable embedded sensor and control processor core
