Ericsson selects processor technology for high speed wireless
Posted: 31-Jul-2000 [Source: Ericsson press release]

[Ericsson has selected the ARM7TDMI processor core as the basis for its Bluetooth and fast Internet developments.]

Ericsson licenses ARM(r) Microprocessors for Bluetooth and fast Internet access Ericsson has licensed the ARM7TDMI processor core for use in communication products. This agreement will enable Ericsson to leverage on the re-use of the ARM and Ericsson design IP among all its divisions providing greater design and production flexibility resulting in faster time-to-market and reduced development costs. "For Bluetooth applications we have found that ARM's proven processor technology provides us with an efficient and scalable platform for our system-on-chip solutions. Fast Internet access to the home is an other important area of applications," said Johan Tingsborg, Vice President and General Manager for Datacom ICs at Ericsson Microelectronics AB. "By working directly with ARM and our silicon foundry partners, we will be able to further extend our technology leadership while significantly reducing time-to-market for our next generation consumer communications products through extensive hardware and software re-use across the company." "This agreement reflects ARM's commitment to aligning with industry drivers, as Ericsson, in key market segments, reinforcing ARM's position as a de facto standard," said Mike Muller, executive vice president of Business Development for ARM. "The Ericsson/ARM partnership accelerates the adoption of the ARM architecture and increases the demand for ARM Powered communications products."

ARM(r) processors range in performance from 60 MHz (54 MIPS) to 175 MHz (200 MIPS), extending to 300 MHz (400+ MIPS) for processor cores currently in development. The cores are noted for performance, small die size, low power consumption, tight code density, and multiple supply sources. Instruction set compatibility between processor families promotes design reuse and reduces software development time. ARM offers full system-on-chip solutions including processor cores, peripheral intellectual property, development tools, applications software, EDA tools and design services. The ARM architecture is well supported by semiconductor partners, real-time operating system providers, third-party tool chain developers, application software providers and ARM design centers.
