ARM® Design

DSL can develop complex ARM® based platforms from scratch or by employing our fast time-to-market functional building blocks.

Whilst DSL’s roots were x86 driven, we long ago embraced the emerging technology of ARM microcontrollers and microprocessors, offering ever lower power operation and with lower heat dissipation requirements.

> The AMPIC (ARM® Cortex-M4 multi-protocol interface converter) is employed for low risk Remote SensorsStand-alone Control Systems and Industrial I/O design.

> The Kitana (ARM® Cortex-A8 Sitara processor) is employed for low risk Multimedia and higher complexity applications, often additionally using an ARM® microcontroller to handle low level I/O.

Read about this revolutionary ‘Functional Building Block’ approach to design here.

DSL has the capability to design and manufacture both ARM microcontroller and ARM microprocessor based platforms, employing your preferred platform or recommending what suits your need best.
