August 7, 2007 -- ARM today announced that AIT, a manufacturer of highly integrated multimedia processors for mobile phones, has licensed the ARM926EJ-S processor. This licensing agreement will enable AIT to benefit from ARM processor technology, as well as the ARM ecosystem, to accelerate the design of advanced SOC solutions for next-generation feature phones incorporating digital camera technology.
"rowing consumer demand is driving the development of SOC solutions that enable rich multimedia performance in a range of feature phones and smartphones," aid Andy Tsai, Assistant Vice President, AIT. "By licensing the ARM926EJ-S processor, AIT is able to combine its multimedia expertise with ARMís leading technology and integrate advanced features in its SOoC solutions, which enable sharper and more brilliant images, better sound quality, and a more complete multimedia experience in mobile devices."
About the ARM926EJ-S processor
The ARM926EJ-S macrocell is fully synthesizable, and features a Jazelle technology-enhanced 32-bit RISC CPU, flexible size instruction and data caches, tightly coupled memory (TCM) interfaces and memory management unit (MMU). It also provides separate instruction and data AMBA bus compliant AHB interfaces, particularly suitable for Multi-layer AHB technology-based systems. The ARM926EJ-S processor implements the ARMv5TEJ instruction set and includes an enhanced 16- x 32-bit multiplier, capable of single cycle MAC operations. It also supports all major operating systems and existing middleware.
