Elstree, England ARC International has licensed its configurable ARC 725D processor core to Honeywell for a government satellite application. Such applications require processors that provide a high level of security, operate reliably and continuously, and consume as few watts as possible over extended periods of time.
"Our configurable cores are particularly well suited for military/government applications because of the clone-resistant security a highly customized ARC CPU provides the designer," said Derek Meyer, senior vice president of sales and marketing at ARC International. "Furthermore, by eliminating unneeded elements within the processor power consumption is kept to a minimum, reducing overall system power requirements."
At up to 700 MHz and over 1068 DMIPS performance in a 90 nanometer process, the 710D, 725D, and 750D cores meet the needs of the most demanding SoC applications. The 700 core family also makes an ideal platform for devices requiring high-end embedded OS's such as Linux. Standard features include DSP instructions, RTOS, and secure processing support. ARC's XY Advanced DSP subsystem, Memory Management Unit, and FPX floating point extensions are available options for each core.
