ARM Extends DesignStart Program with ARM926EJ Processor

17 January 2007

ARM has extended its DesignStart™ Program to include the popular ARM926EJ™ processor alongside the ARM7TDMI® processor.

The ARM DesignStart program was established to provide designers with the ability to evaluate ARM processors for use in their designs. The program enables fabless companies, from start-ups through to small and medium size organizations, to do the majority of their design activities, including SoC integration and verification, software development and chip layout, prior to obtaining a full ARM Processor Foundry Program License.

The Jazelle® technology-enabled ARM926EJ processor features 16k instruction and data caches, tightly coupled memory (TCM) interfaces and memory management unit (MMU). For further information about the program and products, visit www.arm.com

The ARM DesignStart Program has proved very successful since its launch in 2005. The introduction of the ARM926EJ processor into the program will provide fabless companies with the opportunity to evaluate their designs on either one of ARM’s most popular processors, before committing to silicon.

ARM designs the technology that lies at the heart of advanced digital products, from wireless, networking and consumer entertainment solutions to imaging, automotive, security and storage devices. ARM’s comprehensive product offering includes 16/32-bit RISC microprocessors, data engines, graphics processors, digital libraries, embedded memories, peripherals, software and development tools, as well as analog functions and high-speed connectivity products. Combined with the company’s broad Partner community, they provide a total system solution that offers a fast, reliable path to market for leading electronics companies.
