Q: What distinguishes Design Reviews from Training or Support?
A: Support and Training are based on explaining what an Arm product can do and how to integrate it, whilst Design Reviews cover all the Arm products in your implementation to ensure they are used correctly and in line with your design goals.
Q: Why do I need a Design Reviews agreement before the first engagement starts?
Q: What happens when I take a Design Review?
A: For a Design Review, there are three stages: Preparation, On-site Visit and Report. For an Implementation Assist, the visit is replaced by off-site consultancy involving a series of conference calls. The preparation stage is necessary in both cases to ensure best use is made of time spent in the main consultancy phase.
Q: How long does a Design Review engagement last?
A: Assuming the Design Review agreement is in place; an engagement can start within a few weeks of the request. The length of the engagement will vary depending of the type of Design Review service; which typically takes 3 to 4 days on-site, whilst an Implementation Assist is conducted over a period of months. The report is published two weeks after the engagement has concluded.
Q: What information does the Design Review report contain?
Q: What products can be covered by a Design Review?
A: Design Reviews are restricted to Arm technology. The preparation stage of the Design Review will identify which products you are using and ensure the right experts are assigned to cover those. Please contact us to discuss any special requirements you may have.
Q: Who delivers a Design Review?
A: Design Reviews are delivered by senior Arm engineers from the Product Support team or the Product Development team, chosen for their relevant knowledge and experience, and backed up by the Product Support team.
Q: What guarantees does Arm make?
A: Arm cannot guarantee that a Design Review will produce perfectly working silicon. Arm cannot guarantee that an Implementation Assist will exceed PPA targets. Arm can guarantee that a design will be thoroughly inspected by Arm experts who have worked with many successful designs.
