Overview:
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

Length: 50
minutes + 10 minutes of Q&A
