Types of Design Reviews:
  • Architecture Design Review
    Arm experts visit you on-site to review your proposed system, looking at the system topology, potential bottlenecks and power management considerations, providing general best-practice advice.
  • CryptoCell Security Architecture Design Review
    Arm experts visit you on-site to review your proposed system, looking at the usage of CryptoCell, checking security infrastructure implementation and providing general best-practice advice. They will also review your software design to align with CryptoCell security.
  • RTL Design Review
    Arm experts visit you on-site to verify the SoC design of your Arm IP at the RTL level, covering for instance: signal connectivity, system coherency, correct implementation and system performance.  
  • Physical Implementation Design Review
    Arm experts offer a best practice review of your implementation flow and intermediate results, followed by an on-site review of logs just before you proceed to the tape-out stage.
  • Trusted Firmware-A Design Review
    Arm experts visit you on-site to assist you with your platform software integration code and to provide feedback and advice on implementation options. This is done through a program of training and reviews.
  • Power Management Firmware Design Review
    This Design Review is comprised of interactive training covering mobile platform power management frameworks from a software perspective. The training will guide you on low-level System Control and Management / Power State Coordination Interfaces (SCMI / PSCI) and System Control Processor (SCP) implementation, making reference to Arm mobile system design guidance. Following the training, we will conduct a comprehensive review of your project; advising on the Cortex-M based SCP platform power management solution, in addition to reviewing any specific requirement and modifications.
  • Linux power and thermal frameworks Design Review
    This Design Review covers Energy Aware Scheduling (EAS) and Intelligent Power Allocation (IPA). Arm experts will assist you with best practice for tuning power and performance under platform thermal constraints. This is done through a program of training and reviews.
