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.

Thermal Shock testing isn’t unique to the connector world, but it does play a big role in the qualification testing that Samtec puts all connectors through before they are released for production. Chances are likely that you thermally shock many items per day and don’t give it a ...
