The ARM968E-S is a small footprint core for low power, data intensive applications
The ARM968E-S processor is designed for hard real time applications, and provides highly deterministic performance. Within the ARM9™ processor family, the ARM968E-S processor provides the smallest footprint and highest power efficiency.
Some of the features offered by the ARM968E-S are:
- Separate directly connected instruction and data tightly coupled memory (TCM), which have flexible sizes.
- Dedicated AMBA® AHB-lite slave Direct Memory Access (DMA) port and dual banked data TCM to enable the processor and a DMA controller to share access to TCM
- Binary compatibility with the ARM7TDMI® processor
Over 5 Billion ARM9 processors have been shipped so far
The ARM968E-S processor is a very popular processor within the ARM9 family, and continues to be successfully deployed across a wide range of products and applications which demand highly deterministic behavior and have tight area and power budgets.
By offering stable and proven performance, it provides designers a low risk solution, with very fast time to market.
