GOWIN Semiconductor Joins Arm DesignStart Offering Free Arm Cortex-M Processors for its FPGA Product Families
May 20, 2019
GOWIN offers Cortex M1 IP.
SAN JOSE, CA. and GUANGZHOU, China. GOWIN Semiconductor Corp., the world's fastest-growing programmable logic company, announces a collaboration with Arm Limited to bring the mature Arm® embedded ecosystem to GOWIN's FPGA product families. GOWIN will be joining the Arm DesignStart™ FPGA program, offering embedded developers a no license fee, no royalty access model to use Arm Cortex®-M processors for enabling FPGA projects with proven Arm IP and software products.
Embedded designs are pushing the envelope of performance, flexibility, and cost in today's IoT systems. FPGAs offer a greater degree of flexibility, optimization, and performance than microcontrollers, at the same cost, power, and size. Developers are now further enabled with easy access to the most widely adopted Arm processors along with the broadest set of software and tools.
"We are excited to be working with Arm as a partner in the DesignStart FPGA program to enhance development in the IoT space with our FPGA solutions," said Scott Casper, Director of Sales, GOWIN Semiconductor, "Our customers can now gain fast, completely no-cost access to proven Cortex-M1 processor IP, and easy design integration with GOWIN tools. This provides a comprehensive software development environment to accelerate success on our FPGAs."
With the DesignStart FPGA program, GOWIN is enabling developers to accelerate success with easy and instant access to these Cortex-M processors through the GOWIN IP Generator. The IP Generator provides easy integration of the processor with GOWIN's tools and additional peripheral IP. The development environment is complemented with Arm's software and development ecosystem.
"Developers are constantly looking for quick, low-cost ways to adapt their products and meet the needs of fast-moving markets," said Chris Shore, director embedded solutions, Automotive and IoT Line of Business, Arm. "The expansion of the DesignStart program with GOWIN brings the benefits of the extensive Arm software and development ecosystem to even more application-optimized designs. This means developers can innovate faster with reduced development costs and decreased time to market on commercial FPGAs."
