Software eases interconnect analysis of ARM-based SoCs

-October 30, 2013

Interconnect Workbench from Cadence provides interconnect performance analysis and verification of SoC (system-on-chip) devices incorporating ARM CoreLink CCI-400, NIC-400, NIC-301, and ADB-400 system intellectual property (IP). The software tool identifies design issues under critical traffic conditions and delivers cycle-accurate analysis that enables users to make tradeoffs and enhance their designs.

Interconnect Workbench works in conjunction with Interconnect Validator to form a complete functional-verification and performance-validation platform. By automatically generating a performance-analysis testbench that incorporates Interconnect Validator and a complete suite of ARM AMBA verification IP, design teams can reduce the time and effort typically required to create a test environment. System architects can experiment with different scenarios and consider tradeoffs that impact throughput, latency, and bandwidth. Users can even compare potential architectures side by side on one screen.
