Aldec Adds ARM Cortex-A9 Support to HES-7 ASIC Prototyping Platform

HENDERSON, Nev. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 10, 2012Aldec, Inc., in its commitment to support the growing requirements of hardware and software verification engineers, now supports ARM® dual-core Cortex™-A9 MPCore® application development and verification in its HES-7™ ASIC prototyping platform. HES-7 leverages Xilinx Virtex-7 2000T and Zynq™-7000 All Programmable SoC and includes peripherals supporting media interfaces, memories and additional connectors to expand the development of a wide array of SoC applications.

The HES-7 ASIC prototyping platform, coupled with open-source Linux, Android and FreeRTOS solutions available from Xilinx, provides software developers of ARM Cortex-A9 applications with a complete SoC platform. These applications, along with the 4 to 96 million ASIC gate scalable capacity of HES-7, deliver a powerful verification platform for design teams comprised of hardware and software engineers.

Leverage Cortex-A9

Designers can now leverage the serial processing capabilities of the Cortex-A9 processor for applications that require intensive computations and operating systems with the parallel processing capabilities of HES-7 ASIC prototyping platform to create applications across a diverse range of markets including: Video, Communications, Control Systems and Bridging.
