ARM design suites of heterogeneous computing cores all baselined on a specific implementation of the ARM architecture model. This provides opportunities for enhanced quality control and process improvement. One such improvement is a multi-layered reuse model that enables content sharing across the suite, with reduced development time and an ability to accurately make fast updates. This presentation describes the mechanics of that reuse model. The model uses both profiling and key-defined content switching and worked extremely well for ARM.
