Toshiba Corp. has licensed the ARM926EJ-S core processor to allow Toshiba to offer a processor for wireless applications such as mobile phones and PDAs.

"Mobile products are evolving to embrace such functions as image transmission, that requires de facto standard Java technology-based middleware. This license will allow us to offer a Java technology-based SoC solution to our customers," said Shigeru Komatsu, general manager of the Telecom and Network Division at Toshiba's Semiconductor Co. "Our licensing of ARM926EJ-S core will enable us to expand our SoC solution business with IP-rich advanced embedded technologies."

The ARM926EJ-S core contains ARM Jazelle technology that accelerates Java execution by up to eight times compared to a fully software-based JVM. It is expected to run diverse platform operating systems, such as Linux, Palm OS, Windows CE and Symbian OS, in mobile phones or other applications.
