Synopsys Inc. announced Android OS (v2.2 FroYo) support for the DesignWare ARC 750D configurable processor core. The DesignWare ARC 750D host processor at 1.1 GHz and delivers 1800 DMIPs in an industry standard 40nm process.

The DesignWare ARC 750D offers a broad range of processor, DSP and floating point capabilities, enabling designers to address a wide range of processing requirements with a single host application processor. Using a single processor simplifies the design, lowers silicon-area and enables faster debug of the chip. In addition, Synopsys offers designers a full suite of software and development tools to ease program development and debug. Shipped in more than 550 million ICs annually, Synopsys' high-quality DesignWare ARC processors can be integrated into SoC designs with less risk and improved time-to-market.

"Synopsys' DesignWare ARC 750D processor core with support for the Android OS enabled us to easily integrate Android-based applications into our SoC early in the design process," said Robert Chen, president of AVID. "By using Synopsys' configurable DesignWare ARC 750D processor, we are able to produce a high-performance, low-power solution that is helping deliver next-generation Android-based products reliably to the marketplace."

The DesignWare ARC 750D processor is available now.
