In the very early stages of the design cycle, VSTREAM may be used to:
DS-5, together with VSTREAM and the ARM DSTREAM™ target connection unit, provide a common software development environment throughout the complete design cycle: from models and RTL simulators, through hardware emulators and FPGAs, to ASICs and ASSPs.
All current ARM Cortex processors are supported by VSTREAM. Furthermore, it enables the simultaneous connection of multiple debuggers to a target, an essential function in bringing up multicore devices, such as those based on the Cortex-A5, Cortex-A9, and Cortex-A15 MPCore™ processors.
VSTREAM is available now for usage with Cadence Incisive, Synopsys VCS and Mentor ModelSim and Questa simulators. The hardware emulators supported are Cadence Palladium, Eve Zebu and Mentor Veloce. For further details on VSTREAM visit www.arm.com/vstream or contact your ARM representative.
