Recommendations for download
It is recommended that you use the GNU tar tool, version 1.14 or higher to avoid any confusion over the contents of your download. The downloaded file has been TAR'ed and compressed using 'gzip'.
To recreate the files use:
gtar -xvf FILENAME.tar
Additional information regarding GNU tar
Arm deliverables are downloaded as gzipped tar files that contain long pathnames. There are numerous different versions of "tar" available for unpacking them, but not all of them cope well with long paths.
If you have any questions regarding this release please, do not hesitate to contact your Partner Account Manager or firstname.lastname@example.org.
New contract page functionality
Downloading Arm IP via connect
Arm recommends that if you use connect, to download, and install the Aspera Connect download manager to manage your IP downloads.
The Aspera application can be downloaded from the diagnostic tool page. Which detects your OS and present you with the correct version for your machine. You can also test your ports from this page to see if you must take action regarding opening the correct ports. See the FAQ page on Aspera for further details.
The most important benefit of using the recommended download manager is the ability to automatically restart a download. If interrupted by the browser losing connection. And to manage multiple concurrent downloads if necessary.

Product and Part Information
How are the Arm PIPD products bundled?
Arm PIPD products are bundled according to the following guideline:
||Contains an elemental set of views to support basic product operation. Typical contents vary by product family and may include, but are not limited to, release note, databook, cell list, user guide, symbol models, verilog models, LEF views, FRAM views, Liberty NLM Models for the nominal voltage domain.|
||Same as the FE bundle contents plus GDSII layouts and LVS netlist views|
||Contains Liberty NLM models for voltage domains other than nominal, each unique voltage domain would have a unique FT bundle|
||Contains advanced EDA views set-up by EDA view per voltage domain supported. Typical contents vary by product family and may include, but are not limited to, CCS Timing-Noise models, Cadence CPF models, CeltIC Noise models, Apache Power Library models and VoltageStorm models. Products generally contain multiple FX bundles.|
