The North American Components business of Arrow Electronics has released a new design services and IP access model integrating ARM industry-standard processors in Altera Stratix FPGAs and HardCopy structured ASIC series devices.

Produced by Arrow's Custom Logic Solutions group, the customers can now use ARM processors consistently across FPGA, ASIC and foundry platforms for prototyping and high-volume production uses.

This model extends the company's recently launched support of the Cortex-M1 processor and ARM7 and ARM9E processor families in ASIC and foundry, by employing prototype and production application of these processors in Altera's Stratix FPGA and HardCopy ASIC devices. Based on the design services model, Arrow will create a customer-specified ARM technology-based subsystem and incorporate it into the customers' design. The resulting design will be used in a HardCopy device, or encrypted and delivered for the customers on encryption-capable Stratix devices.

Arrow claimed that the company provides a unique solution for customers who want to include mainstream ARM processors into their Stratix or HardCopy designs. They noted that the combination of ARM technology and Arrow design services helps to provide an excellent partnership of flexibility and time-to-market.
