Santa Clara, Calif.NEC Electronics Corp. has unveiled two 32-bit ARM processor cores that can be used with its SoC design methodology to develop high-speed products for networking, wireless, digital consumer, imaging, storage, automotive and industrial applications.
NEC's 90-nm, 700-MHz (931-MHz under nominal process conditions) dual-core implementation of the ARM11 MPCore multicore processor is being touted as the highest-performing ARM processor core on the market, while the ARM926EJ-S processor core is said to be the industry's fastest at 130 nm, clocking in at 400-MHz (532-MHz under nominal process conditions).
Availability: The 400-MHz ARM926EJ-S processor is available in NEC's CB-130M IP library. The 700-MHz ARM11 MPCore multicore processor is scheduled to be available for SoC integration before the end of 2007 in the CB-90M IP library. Both processors are available for either cell-based IC (CB-IC) or customer-owned tooling (COT) applications.
