"Arm expands design possibilities with free Cortex-M processors for Xilinx FPGAs"

https://www.arm.com/company/news/2018/10/arm-expands-design-possibilities-with-free-cortex-m-processors-for-xilinx-fpgas


FPGA 시장이 점점 커질 것을 예상하고, arm에서 선제적으로 FPGA용 CortexM 시리즈를 무료로 배포한다.

장점이야 링크 글에 있는 내용을 가져오면 머 당연한 말들이 적혀있다.

Cortex-M1 이 원래 FPGA용 코어로 제공되고 있는 것으로 알고 있고, Cortex-M3 합성도 가능한가 보다.


  • Maximum choice and flexibility: easy and instant access to Cortex-M1 (an FPGA-optimized version of the Cortex-M0 processor) and Cortex-M3 soft processor IP for FPGA integration with Xilinx products – all for no license fee and no royalties
  • Reduced software costs: by making it possible to get maximum reuse of software across an entire OEM’s product portfolio on a standardized CPU architecture, scaling from single board computers through to FPGAs
  • Ease of design: easy integration with Xilinx system and peripheral IP through Vivado Design Suite, using a drag-and-drop design approach to create FPGA systems with Cortex-M processors
  • Reduced time-to-market: access to an extensive software ecosystem and knowledge base of others designing on Arm, which includes Arm Keil MDK, a full-featured software development suite for Arm-based microcontrollers
