Cadence and ARM have created an IoT IP reference sub-system that can speed system development, enabling rapid prototyping and reducing time to market. The sub-system contains a processor and a set of peripherals that are typical for IoT sensors, giving a design team access to required functionality. Thus, the engineering effort is spent configuring the system, connecting the data stream to the cloud, and developing the solution applications.
The system is available as an FPGA development board, peripherals including a touch screen, and soft IP image as described in the video here.
Figure 1: ARM IoT Development Board
ARM has committed the design to silicon, producing a chip in TSMC 55ULP and a board. The first demo using this board is for a Bluetooth smartphone application, shown in a video here.
These examples enable an engineer to produce a working system in just one month. See a short video on that here.
The IoT market is rapidly evolving, and this IoT IP reference sub-system enables customers to keep pace with changes. For questions about this solution, including how to get access, please contact Steve Brown: firstname.lastname@example.org.
