ARM Introduces New Processor for Low-Power Mobile and Consumer Applications
Posted on 5-Oct-2005 12:05. | Tags Filed under: News.



ARM has announced its new Cortex-A8 processor which the company says will revolutionize consumer and low-power mobile devices, enabling the delivery of higher levels of entertainment and innovation to end users.

The new processor was launched at the second annual ARM Developers' Conference, in Santa Clara, California. The ARM Cortex-A8 processor delivers performance and power efficiency while using less than 300 mW in 65nm technology.

ARM has already secured five licensees for the Cortex-A8 processor, including Freescale, Matsushita, Samsung and Texas Instruments, and future support from major EDA and Operating System vendors.

The Cortex-A8 processor is the first applications processor based on the next-generation ARMv7 architecture, and features Thumb-2 technology for greater performance, energy efficiency, and code density. It includes the first implementation of the NEON multimedia extensions to accelerate media codecs such as H.264 and MP3.

This solution also includes Jazelle-RCT Java-acceleration technology to optimize Just In Time (JIT) and Dynamic Adaptive Compilation (DAC), and reduce memory footprint by up to three times. Additionally, the new processor features TrustZone technology for secure transactions and Digital Rights Management (DRM), and Intelligent Energy Manager (IEM) capability for low power.

Texas Instruments Incorporated intends to use the Cortex-A8 processor across a range of next-generation, ultra-low power 3G modems and high-performance, OMAP application processors.
