University Program - Overview
The University Program provides and encourages the use of ARM technology as teaching aids in universities and other higher education establishments.
University courses that focus on System-on-Chip design, computer architecture, embedded systems development or general programming can benefit from using ARM processors and development systems.
The program will enable university lecturers/academics to gain access to a set of teaching resources to allow courses developed around the ARM architecture from both the hardware, software and systems aspects.
University DesignStart Processor Design Kits
Universities can gain access to processor simulation environments for ARM technology and can incorporate industry models into academic research efforts. These are simulation environments based on real foundry processes available in the current marketplace.
Academic establishments wishing to participate in the University DesignStart Processor Design Kit program need to register with ARM. Once registered, qualified individuals may download DesignStart Kits for the ARM processor directly from the ARM web site. At the moment, one popular ARM processor is available in this program:

The University DesignStart Kit is comprised of the following deliverables:
- Documentation including User Guide and Integration Manual
- Design Simulation Model allowing RTL level simulation
- Foundry process specific timing view (.lib and .CLF format)
- Foundry process specific abstract layout view (.LEF and .FRAM format)
