Taking into account the range of implementation challenges faced by mutual customers, ARM and Cadence partnered to produce the Encounter Express Flow for the ARM Cortex-A8 processor, a completely synthesis-based flow to complement the Optimized flow,
vastly reducing the engineering effort required to produce an implementation with an acceptable power/performance/area trade off. This flow is available
now from ARM.
