The power control, timers, Wi-Fi, and display components

The power control

It is important to have a power and clock control infrastructure on an SoC. For this purpose, Arm created the PCK-600 Power Control Kit. The PCK-600 components use Arm Q-Channel and P-Channel Low-Power Interfaces to control the power and clock states of components on the SoC.

This guide assumes that you will use the PCK-600 for your SoC.

Note: The PCK-600 is part of the Corstone-201 Foundation IP that is supplied with Arm Flexible Access.

The timers

It is important to have timers on an SoC. The Cortex-M System Design Kit (CMSDK) provides timers with varying functionality.

This guide assumes that you will use one or more of the CMSDK timers to fulfill the requirements of your SoC.

Note: The CMSDK is part of the Corstone-201 Foundation IP that is supplied with Arm Flexible Access.

The Wi-Fi component

Arm does not currently offer any Wi-Fi IP. We recommend that you investigate IP that is offered by third parties. This guide assumes that you have Wi-Fi IP suitable for your IoT coffee machine and examines how you could integrate the Wi-Fi IP with the SoC.

The display

Arm does not currently offer any display IP targeting an AHB-based system. We recommend that you investigate IP that is offered by third parties. This guide assumes that you have display IP that is suitable for your IoT coffee machine and examines how you could integrate the display IP with the SoC.
