DesignStart Success Stories
"Arm DesignStart is the ideal starting point for a custom SoC – being able to use both the Cortex-M0 and Cortex-M3 CPUs with a $0 license, just a success-based, royalty-only model, means that our customers can save on costs and reduce risk. Providing these in a verified subsystem allows our developers to concentrate on creating the value-add in the custom SoC, with the fastest time-to-market."
- John Tinson, VP Global Sales, Sondrel.
“DesignStart enables educators to make the giant leap from incomplete, simple educational examples to real-world, industry-leading IP technology as the foundation of our future education.”
- Dr Matthew Swabey, Director of the Bechtel Innovation Design Center, Purdue University
University of California San Diego
“Using the Cortex-M0 DesignStart in our studies has led to industry interest in our research results.”
- Professor Andrew Kahng, University of California San Diego (UCSD)
