Cortex-A5 DesignStart

Arm DesignStart is enhancing the Cortex-A5 package to help custom chip designers to expand market opportunities and develop richer experiences. The new package helps to reduce the development time of Arm-based Linux-capable chips. Designers can now take advantage of the fast simulation models of the CPU with a pre-validated, configurable reference (subsystem) design to reduce device complexity and speed-up software development.
