Multiple Implementation Choices to Achieve Market Leading PPA for Arm IP
Arm offers a range of options for physical implementation to suit your needs, starting from best practice guidelines in the iRM, through to comprehensive physical implementation services and Arm POP IP technology.
Implementation Reference Methodology (iRM)
Arm provides a worked implementation example for all cores, which is a fixed configuration on a specific process node using a specific EDA tool. iRMs contain documents and constraint files and are shipped with Arm IP deliverables.
You may decide to extract best practice from the iRM, however we recommend that you also consider some additional physical implementation services from Arm, and/or Arm POP IP solutions.
