Is a DesignWare foundation license required to synthesize the ARM synthesizable cores?

Applies to: ARM1026EJ-S, ARM7EJ-S, ARM7TDMI-S, ARM926EJ-S, ARM946E-S, ARM966E-S


In most cases, yes. DesignWare components are used within the core, they offer better performance and reduce the overall area size. However, it is possible to replace the DesignWare components instantiated in the RTL by equivalent RTL code.
