Arm Cortex-A Physical Implementation

  • Delivery method: Virtual Classroom (Private)

  • Location: Any Location

  • Course Length: 1 day or 2 x 1/2 days

  • Technology Focus: Hardware

  • Cost: Contact us for pricing

  • Provider: Arm


This course is designed to help implementation engineers with the physical layout and implementation flow specific to their individual piece of Arm Cortex- A Processor IP, such as the Arm Cortex-A78, Cortex X1 or Cortex A65AE. Please note this course will need repeating for each separate processor when working on a multiple processor implementation.

At the end of the course, attendees will be able to

  • Describe the design structure and configurable options
  • Analyse clock and reset scheme
  • Use the implementation methodology
  • Apply timing constraints and data flow
  • Integrate Power Grid and Low Power implementation
  • Learn floorplan and placement guides from Arm experience
  • Analyse critical timing and power consumption.
  • Integrate DFT and MBIST


  • A working knowledge of implementation flows.
  • Experience of EDA tool operation.
