ARM GPIO Libraries are available from the latest 28nm nodes to established 250nm nodes. These are “best in class” libraries based on architectural analysis by experts in leading-edge processes and design styles.
The libraries include a comprehensive cellset to allow for successful implementation of a robust pad ring on your next ARM core design. The GPIO offers a wide performance range for all types of applications from low speed/low current drive to high performance high loaded systems. Ability to address the low power dense applications and allowing the choice in packaging create compelling competing solutions for broad ranges of SoC price points.
ARM has a successful history of library development and takes the forefront in cooperation with foundries, customers and EDA vendors. Such alignment, across key disciplines within the industry, results in continuous improvements in cell sets, architecture and modeling, all proven in thousands of designs.
ARM GPIO Libraries, used for ultra-low power applications in the kHz range up to multiple hundreds of MHz in performance, are targeted to specific process node and foundry. The designs ensure the extraction of the most performance of the design, ensuring robust operation.
Designed to meet a wide range of process, voltage and temperature conditions, the ARM GPIO libraries, verified in our silicon test chip, ensure correlation between simulation models and ensure full functionality.
