WHY: In granting the award, VDC said, “ESL-focused companies should be pleased to see a company like ARM continuing in its efforts to bring improved system-level design tools to customers. With the popularity of the ARM® architecture, the company has substantial influence in the industry and VDC believes that by streamlining its tools chain and making these tools available to a greater number of system developers, ARM is helping to substantially promote the concept of ESL-based design.
