Arm Neoverse – DynamIQ (CHI) System Design


This training course covers system-wide configuration and integration topics for DynamIQ-based infrastructure systems. By the end of the course delegates will be able to:

  • Describe the DynamIQ (DSU), Neoverse Processor main functions.
  • Integrate the DSU in their SoC and configure to match their system requirements, including integrating GIC-600.
  • Explain the DynamIQ (DSU) transaction flows and clocking schemes.
  • Describe the DSU memory system configuration and behavior with different memory types.
  • Understand the DSU and Neoverse processor power and reset modes and power transition flows.
  • Explain DSU Debug and Trace integration.
  • Run the supplied test cases when they get the release package test-benches


  • A working knowledge of SOC and RTL design.
  • Intro to Arm online training (included)
  • Armv8-A Overview (included)
  • Introduction to DynamIQ online training (included)
  • CHI training


Engineers who work in a SoC project using Neoverse-N1 and carry out System Design or IP / SoC verification.
