@@Hsinchu, Taiwan-Jan. 26, 2006 - Global Unichip Corp. (GUC), a leading SoC design foundry and TSMC partner, today announced the world first and only one ARM926EJ testchip UTM0034A(TM) featuring 2 sets of AHB interface. Unlike other circulated testchip solutions with single AHB interface, GUCfs UTM0034A(TM) testchip solution represents the real ARM926EJ bus structure, which provides 2 sets of AMBA interconnect-based AHB interface, and is more favorable for the practical application when used in system prototyping.
@@gThis solution helps engineers accelerate development in the stage of FPGA prototyping and reduce efforts and risks of ARM core integration when processing chip implementation,h said Jim Lai, President and COO of Global Unichip Corp. gIt effectively shortens time-to-design and time-to-market for customersf various ASIC/ASSP products.h
@@ARM926EJ testchip UTM0034A(TM) was hardened from ARM926EJ-S, a synthesizable macrocell, based on TSMC 0.13um 1P6M generic process technology. Its functionality was fully validated on platform UMVP-2000(TM), a standard AMBA-based IP/SoC verification platform designed by GUC. gWith the offering of testchip UTM0034A(TM) and platform UMVP-2000(TM), GUC actively demonstrates its long-term commitment to deep submicron IP/SoC design service for ARM core-based designs,h highlighted Jim Lai. gNow GUC has one more powerful weapon to help customers enable business.h
@@UTM0034A(TM) features 2 AHB interfaces, BGA388 package, 32KB/32KB I/D caches, 64KB/64KB I/D TCMs (Tightly Coupled Memory) and up to 200MHZ performance. The design kit of testchip UTM0034A(TM) including core module, datasheet, application note, and reference board schematics is now available.
