This virtual reference design kit is intended to guide engineers as they design the Spreadtrum SC9830A quad-core SoC into a target PCB design. Using the virtual reference design kit, users can take the SC9830A reference PCB design and re-use portions relevant for their target design and rapidly adapt other portions as required. The virtual reference design kit includes data examples and analysis models pre-populated for use in:

"We worked very closely with Cadence, leveraging their Sigrity technology, to develop a virtual reference design kit that makes it easier for our customers to design in our SC9830A quad-core SoC," said John Rowland, SVP of Hardware Engineering at Spreadtrum. "Our customers can now begin to optimize the cost and performance of their products to take advantage of all the Spreadtrum SC9830A features, while meeting accelerated time-to-market challenges."
