What is iRM?

Applies to: Processor Cores

Answer

iRM stands for implementation Reference Methodology

iRM is a set of best implementation practices for hardening ARM soft IP, which can be used as a source of reference to obtain other customized implementations for tuning performance, power and area of the ARM core.

Customers have to license these iRM components. We provide iRM flows to support EDA tools from the major vendors.

For example:

We have iRM flows using Synopsys, Cadence and Magma tools for all major ARM Cores.

The iRM bundle consists of Scripts + Constraints + Documentation, which helps customers to implement ARM IP RTL all the way to GDSII.
