Vice President, Product Development and Services, ARC International
ARC International is the world leader in configurable processor technology. ARC licenses patented configurable CPU/DSP processors and multimedia subsystems that enable customers to design products that give them a strategic competitive advantage in the marketplace. Using ARC's configurable cores and subsystems, licensees can develop highly differentiated system-on-chips (SoCs) that consume less power and are less expensive to produce.
As a member of the Cadence OpenChoice IP program, ARC works with Cadence to build, validate, and deliver optimized design methodologies using the Cadence® Encounter® platform integrated within ARC's ARChitect® configurator design environment. In addition, ARC uses the Cadence Incisive® platform for verification to ensure the highest quality products.
ARC joined the Power Forward Initiative in 2006 and will deliver future products which integrate the Cadence Encounter digital design flow using the Common Power Format (CPF) within its ARChitect configurator tool. The ARC and Cadence collaboration also extends to co-marketing activities with ARC participating on CPF panels at industry events and as a Silver sponsor of CDNLive! Silicon Valley 2007, while Cadence participates in ARC's ConfigCon™ series.
As ARC continues to develop new products and IP, we will work with Cadence to offer flows that target those products, reducing customers’ risk and enabling them to get to market quicker.Paul Holt,Vice President, Product Development and ServicesARC International
