Chip Planning Portal
The ChipEstimate.com chip planning portal is an ecosystem comprised of ARM IP cores, technical articles, white papers and videos. ChipEstimate.com and ARM share in the common vision of helping the worldwide electronics design community achieve greater profitability and success by exploring the most up-to-date silicon proven IP available from ARM. ChipEstimate.com and ARM provide design teams with the latest information on semiconductor IP and software required to automate the estimation and planning of future chip designs.
InCyte Chip Estimator
The InCyte Chip Estimator provides IC design teams, architects and management with the ability to visualize tradeoffs throughout the chip design cycle. Bringing ARM IP and manufacturing data to bear on the earliest stage of chip planning, the InCyte Chip Estimator enables earlier and more informed decision-making by exploring ARM IP in the context of critical decisions affecting chip performance, functionality and cost. The system helps users explore a wide range of chip architecture options in literally seconds including selection of ARM IP, technology nodes and manufacturing technologies, low power strategies, packaging and much more. Using the InCyte Chip Estimator to develop and optimize chip specifications gives accurate insight into chip size, power, leakage, performance and cost, as estimation results typically correlate well with final silicon.
InCyte Chip Estimator users enter a high-level design specification, including selection of gate counts, performance goals, off-chip bus connections, memory configurations and optional connectivity. They then select ARM IP to be considered either by importing IP Lists they build by searching and selecting ARM IP at ChipEstimate.com, choosing from the InCyte Chip Estimator's extensive integrated catalog or entering in custom IP definitions. After the initial specification is defined, the InCyte Chip Estimator returns a complete datasheet with estimations of final silicon including die area, performance, power, leakage, yield, package recommendations and production chip cost.
Whether you're starting with a complete chip specification or just a high level block diagram, the InCyte Chip Estimator can provide you with meaningful and valuable feedback in seconds.
