ARM Ltd has launched the ARM11 PrimeXsys Platform powered by the new ARM1136J-S microprocessor core and provides system developers with the necessary hardware, software, and verification IP necessary to design a SoC solution for smart digital devices running RTOSs and open OSs, such as Linux, Palm OS v5, Symbian OS, VxWorks, and Windows

"The PrimeXsys platform standard framework provides significant quality gains as well as cost and time savings, enabling our Partners to bring leading-edge digital devices to market more quickly," claimed Ian Thornton, PrimeXsys product manager.

He added that, "The ARM11 PrimeXsys Platform provides the best possible starting point for ARM11 core-based designs; it has been developed alongside the core itself and all hardware and software has been integrated and validated."

The hardware is tightly-integrated with the ARM1136J-S microprocessor core, while the software development tools include extendible software models of the platform that allow software designers to work in parallel with hardware development.

In addition, the PrimeXsys Verification Methodology enables faster integration, verification and validation of a hardware and software system, further reducing the time-to-market period.

The ARM11 PrimeXsys Platform is based around the ARM1136J-S core or the ARM1136JF-S core, providing a worst-case performance of up to 400MHz and supports the features of the ARM11 cores, including four 64-bit ports connected to memory controller supporting 32-bit DDR, synchronous and asynchronous clocking, and 32-bit private bus for peripherals only available to the ARM11 core to ensure minimum latencies.

In addition, the ARM11 PrimeXsys Platform includes development tools to create and validate customized 64/32-bit bus infrastructure; support for DDR, SDRAM, ROM, Flash, and synchronous Flash memory; support for MBX HR-S and MBX R-S; BSPs for Windows CE .NET and Symbian OS 7.0 and VxWorks; and Verification tools based on the PrimeXsys verification strategy.
