April 27, 2007 -- Parrot S.A., a leading provider of mobile multimedia solutions, has licensed the ARM926EJ-S™ processor, along with the PrimeCell® DMA Controller (PL080) the PrimeCell Vectored Interrupt Controller (PL190) and the AMBA® Design Kit. In addition, they have also licensed RealView® prototyping Boards and RealView Development System 3.0, the latest ARM integrated software development suite, for the development of next-generation multimedia products.
The Jazelle® technology-enabled ARM926EJ-S processor executes an instruction set which includes fixed point DSP instructions to enhance the performance of many signal processing algorithms as well as audio and video encoding applications. Its small size and low power consumption will enable Parrot S.A. to continue to deliver high quality audio and mobile communications devices.
The proven compatibility of the PrimeCell DMA controller and the Vectored Interrupt Controller with the ARM926EJ-S processor reduces design risks, while the AMBA Design Kit facilitates the design and verification of a complete ARM® processor-based system. This will greatly reduce a design’s time-to-market, and will enable Parrot S.A. to maintain timely delivery of its products.
