EDA tool vendor Carbon Design Systems has started volume shipments of the recent version of the tool it had acquired from ARM Holdings in July.

Carbon boasted the company has a complete system validation solution with cycle-accurate system modeling, cycle-optimized platform creation, execution and analysis and cycle-accurate model kits for ARM intellectual property.

"Customer feedback on Carbon's acquisition of SoC Designer has been positive and reinforces our extensive experience giving cycle-level virtual platform solutions," said Rick Lucier, CEO, Carbon, in a statement. "Having direct responsibility for the technology helps us to provide a complete solution for architectural analysis, firmware and driver development and optimization, and system integration and debug," he added.

"The new launch incorporates usability, analysis and integration enhancements with an objective to increase the coupling between SoC Designer and Carbon's Model Studio," the company said. "Other features include the ability to give results into other environments, while new transaction and signal dumping support improve debug integrations and provide a path to capture data streams for reuse as block-level test drivers," it added.

Carbon said the latest version of SoC Designer is available for platforms running Linux and Windows.
