1.7. Product documentation, design flow, and architecture

The DMC-400 documentation is as follows:

Technical Reference Manual and Technical Reference Manual Supplement

The TRM and TRM Supplement describe the functionality and the effects of functional options on the behavior of the DMC-400. These are required at all stages of the design flow. The choices that you make in the design flow can mean that some behavior that the TRM describes is not relevant. If you are programming the DMC-400 then contact:

  • the implementer to determine:

    • the build configuration of the implementation

    • what integration, if any, was performed before implementing the DMC-400.

  • the integrator to determine the pin configuration of the device that you are using.

The TRM Supplement is a confidential book that is only available to licensees.

Implementation Guide

The Implementation Guide (IG) describes:

  • the available build configuration options and related issues if you select them

  • how to configure the Register Transfer Level (RTL) with the build configuration options

  • the processes to sign off the configured design.

The ARM product deliverables include reference scripts and information about how you use them to implement your design.

The IG is a confidential book that is only available to licensees.

Integration Manual

The Integration Manual (IM) describes how to integrate the DMC-400 into a SoC. It includes a description of the signals that the integrator must tie-off to configure the macrocell for the required integration. Some of the integration is affected by the configuration options you use when you implement the DMC-400.

The IM is a confidential book that is only available to licensees.

Supplement to AMBA Designer ADR-400 User Guide

The supplement describes how to use AMBA Designer to:

  • configure and build a DMC-400

  • generate its RTL

  • reconfigure the DMC-400.
