MILPITAS, Calif., June 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/
- 425MHz ARM processor is the fastest ARM1136 implementation available today
- The LSI Logic reference design for the ARM1136J-S is delivered as modifiable RTL, giving customers a jump-start on their own custom processor subsystem
-- Immediately available for cell-based ASIC applications, LSI Logic Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today announced the addition of the ARM1136J-S(TM) processor core running at 425MHz to its portfolio of high-performance processor cores in Gflx(TM) 0.11-micron technology. The ARM1136J-S core provided as a hardmacro, is synthesized from RTL, offers seamless ASIC design flow integration with highly accurate timing models and over 99 percent fault coverage. Complementing the ARM1136J-S core is a reference design with all the peripherals typically needed in an embedded processor application, providing customers the ease of use and reliability needed for Right-First-Time, On Time(TM) designs in the communications, consumer, storage, and other markets. LSI Logic currently has multiple ASIC designs in progress with the ARM1136J-S core.
"LSI Logic provides the highest performing microprocessor cores as part of our CoreWare(R) library and achieving 425MHz with the ARM1136J-S core allows our customers to synchronize the core to a key Fibre Channel frequency," said Harmel Sangha, Director, CoreWare Marketing, LSI Logic Corporation. "The reference design provides a complete solution around the ARM1136, providing designers a jump-start on their system development and allowing them to focus on the parts of their design that offer the most value."Fastest ARM1136 Implementation Available Today
LSI Logic's 425MHz version of the high-performance eight-stage pipeline 32-bit RISC device is the fastest implementation of an ARM1136 core available today. The core includes a 16KB instruction cache, 16KB data cache, 16KB instruction TCM (tightly-coupled memory) and 16KB data TCM. Also included is a memory management unit (MMU) for operating systems such as Linux and 64-bit instruction and data AHB interfaces that enable high-performance access to memory systems. LSI Logic provides complete reference designs for all its processor cores, enabling customers to jump start their system development.First ARM1136 RTL-based Reference Design
LSI Logic's 425MHz ARM1136J-S offering includes the industry's first ARM1136 core reference design complete with an Interrupt Controller, UART, GPIO, Timers, Internal SRAM, EBIU and APB bridge. Delivered in RTL, the reference design provides a streamlined methodology for customers to customize, implement, and verify a custom processor subsystem for integration into a SoC.
