Custom Chips for Dummies

Learn everything about Custom SoC/ASIC solutions and the benefits they offer!

Upgrade your design from using off the shelf components to a custom SoC/ASIC. Here’s your ticket to significantly reducing your BOM, creating ultra-low-power devices and increasing product functionality with secure IP.

An SoC/ASIC solution is faster, easier, and for much lower-risk, than you might think, especially when certain Arm IP can be licensed for $0 upfront fees such as the Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M0 or when you can access a wide range of Arm IP, tools and support for a low cost access fee with Arm Flexible Access.

This short, easy-to-read guide uses real-world examples, top tips, and watch-outs to explain how to get a custom chip design to silicon, step-by-step.
