3.2.1. Prerequisites

When you are ready to access the RTL for the design and simulation phase, you should register on designstart.arm.com. After your registration is approved, download the package ARM Cortex-M0 DesignStart Design Kit.

When you have downloaded the ARM Cortex-M0 DesignStart Design Kit, you should install the ARM Cortex-M0 DesignStart Design Kit into a working directory, for example:


See the Cortex-M0 DesignStart RTL Testbench User Guide for more information about how to complete the ARM Cortex-M0 DesignStart Design Kit installation.

For the FPGA design and testbench files, from the ARM Cortex-M0 DesignStart FPGA Prototyping Kit, copy the path DVD/app_notes/AN387/designstart to your working directory, for example:


Figure 3.1 shows the recommended directory structure for your simulation environment.
