SoC Development Platform Prototyping the Next-Gen SoC Designs on 14nm

Faraday SoCreative!VI™ A600 SoC development platform is based on ARM Cortex-A53 processor at Samsung Foundry’s 14LPP FinFET process. It contains a quad-core Cortex-A53 and integrates with multiple high-speed interfaces, including LPDDR4/4X, PCIe-Gen4, Gigabit Ethernet, and USB 2.0 OTG. The platform also integrates Faraday’s Root of Trust IP (Soteria) to support multi-function hardware secure engine and multi-stage secure protection.

SoCreative!VI™ A600 allows seamless system logic architecture verification by connecting to a FPGA with the target design. It shortens overall ASIC development cycle time for early to market.
