Arm

OVERVIEW

ARM RealView Hardware Platforms are suitable for architecture and CPU evaluation, hardware and software design, and ASIC emulation. They are designed to provide value to customers in a number of ways:

  • Early access to the latest ARM IP, including processors, AMBA interfaces, and PrimeCell blocks
  • Faster time to market achieved by fast software development early in the development cycle
  • Risk reduction in ASIC designs by prototyping custom hardware in FPGAs and connecting it to real processors and peripherals
  • Fast environment for application development for a number of operating systems

Connectors

Versatile is ARM’s latest generation family of boards. They are based on high density Q Strip® QTH/QSH connectors from Samtec, which allow several AMBA AHB or AXI buses to be routed between baseboard and daughter cards, also called "tiles."

Samtec describes the Q Strip® QTH Series connector (used on the upper side of the tile) as a header and the QSH Series connector (used on the lower side of the tile) as a socket.

In this video from DesignCon 2019, Scott McMorrow walks us through a live demonstration showing how NovaRay® Cable assemblies offer extreme density while enabling 112 Gbps PAM4 performance. In combination with an ExaMAX® Backplane Cable assembly, the traditional backplane archite...
Micro and rugged typically do not go hand-in-hand, but Samtec offers a breadth of products and features that prove it is possible. To show that, we recently released a new Micro Rugged web experience. Here you can scroll, roll over and interact with the product solutions and rugg...
In January of 2019, we wrapped up a few smaller projects that we have been working on to increase the presence of videos across Samtec.com. We also released a couple of updates to our Industy Standards section of the website, as well as our product configurator. Here are the majo...
Using a connector set that hasn’t been tested for mechanical shock and vibration is like getting a tattoo on your face while jumping on a trampoline; probably isn’t a good choice. Ok, maybe you are thinking, “I’m an engineer, and everyone knows engineers don’t get tattoos.” Well ...
