Arm Development Boards

Arm Musca-A1 development board

Arm development boards are the ideal platform for accelerating the development and reducing the risk of new SoC designs. The combination of ASIC and FPGA technology in Arm boards delivers an optimal solution in terms of speed, accuracy, flexibility and cost.

Key Benefits:

  • Evaluate, benchmark and start software development using the latest Arm processors.
  • Prototype, validate and develop software drivers for new SoC IP blocks.
  • Test custom logic blocks or system IP in an FPGA, connected to an Arm core running at ASIC speed.
