MILPITAS, Calif., April 16, 2002 - Continuing its leadership in high performance system-on-a-chip (SoC) ASIC designs, LSI Logic Corporation today announced the industry's first implementation of the ARM® Jazelle™ technology-enabled ARM926EJ-S™ microprocessor core in a 0.11 micron ASIC technology for customer SoC designs. The ARM926EJ-S core is now available in LSI Logic's high performance Gflx™ 0.11 micron (drawn) process technology running at 266 MHz at worst case conditions. This new high performance core extends LSI Logic's CoreWare® portfolio to address the increasing number of computation-intensive communications, storage, and consumer applications requiring Java capability and complex operating systems such as Linux. The ARM926EJ-S core is also available in LSI Logic's G12™ 0.18-micron (drawn) technology running at 200 MHz. LSI Logic has already engaged with a number of key customers on ARM926EJ-S core-based designs.
"We are very pleased with the performance achieved by this latest core from ARM," said Rafi Kedem, senior director of the processor cores technology group at LSI Logic. "Not only does the ARM926EJ-S core add significant features such as hardware Java acceleration, and a memory management unit (MMU) for complex operating systems, but it offers even higher performance than earlier ARM9E™ family cores. We are seeing a lot of customer interest in this new core."
LSI Logic was the first ARM silicon partner to reach 200 MHz on the popular ARM946E-S™ core on 0.18um and was one of ARM's lead partners for the ARM926EJ-S core. LSI Logic's portfolio includes the ARM7TDMI-S™ core, the ARM946E-S core, the ARM966E-S™ core, and the ARM926EJ-S core as well as a broad range of processor peripherals, a complete family of processor subsystem reference designs, and processor based platforms for customers' SoC design needs. LSI Logic also provides 'rapid prototyping' support as well as worldwide processor integration support. For over two years LSI Logic has standardized on the ARM AMBA® on-chip interconnect as its SoC connectivity standard for all processor related intellectual property (IP) functions. More recently LSI Logic was one of the first ASIC vendors to offer full support for the new Multi-Layer AMBA on-chip interconnect standard from ARM. LSI Logic has also licensed the entire portfolio of complex functionality ARM PrimeCell® peripherals to further enhance the range of IP cores available to its SoC ASIC customers.
"Once again, LSI Logic has used its exceptional SoC ASIC capabilities to quickly offer customers a high-performance, customer-ready ASIC implementation of one of our leading-edge processor cores," said Steve Evans, VP, Segment Marketing, ARM. "We're very pleased to see LSI Logic's strong ongoing commitment to ARM's IP portfolio, and their particular emphasis on very high-performance ASIC processor cores and subsystems."
