ARM Achieves 50X Faster OS Boot-Up on Mali GPU Development using Cadence Palladium XP Platform with ARM Fast Models

Cadence Palladium Hybrid solution enabled 10X speed-up in hardware-software co-development and reduced OS boot-up to test time from hours to minutes

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 1, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), a leader in global electronic design innovation, today announced that ARM® utilized Cadence® Palladium® Hybrid technology and ARM Fast Models to achieve a 50X faster OS boot-up during the development of its ARM Mali-T760 GPU. Compared to the previous emulation only solution, this resulted in up to 10X speed-up of overall hardware-software testing. This increased speed reduced ARM's time from OS boot-up to test from hours to minutes, improving turnaround time and system quality.

"Early hardware-software co-development is critical in the design process for advanced, highly integrated projects," said Hobson Bullman, general manager, development solutions group, ARM. "By using Cadence Palladium Hybrid technology to combine ARM Mali-T760 emulation with ARM Fast Models, we reduced the OS boot-up time, allowing us to run more extensive system-level software workloads and improve product quality."

Part of the Cadence System Development Suite, the Palladium XP platform is the industry's first high-performance, special-purpose verification computing platform that unifies best-in-class simulation acceleration and emulation capabilities in a single environment. Palladium Hybrid technology was introduced in September 2013 and is currently available in production. For more information on Palladium Hybrid technology, visit www.cadence.com/news/pxp.
