MILPITAS, Calif. -- LSI Logic Corp. today announced availability of the industry's first synthesized processor from Arm Ltd. that reaches 200-MHz speeds. The Milpitas company said the synthesized Arm966E-S processor is targeted at communications applications needing highly deterministic control and digital signal processing (DSP) capabilities for such application as digital cellular phones, networking, and mass storage systems.
"The speed increase and enhanced signal processing capabilities enable us to target an even wider range of high-volume applications while maintaining low power consumption, high performance and small die size," said Rafi Kedem, director of Arm CoreWare marketing at LSI Logic.
The Arm966E-S is available now for ICs fabricated in LSI Logic's G12 0.18-micron drawn CMOS technology. The new RISC processor core extends LSI Logic's design library of CoreWare products and support to the AMBA (Advanced Microcontroller Bus Arc hitecture) 2.0 AHB bus specification--which is also known as the AMBA Hi-speed Bus interface.
