ARM has delivered a port of the Symbian OS (operating system) for ARM powered 2.5 and 3G smart phone devices to Motorola's Semiconductor Products Sector.

ARM used system emulation methodologies and the ARM integrator development platform, part of the RealView suite of development tools, to create hardware incorporating an ARM920T macrocell and a combination of Motorola and ARM peripherals. The Symbian OS was then ported to this platform.

The ARM920T macrocell supports platform operating systems such as Symbian OS, Linux and Windows CE and is suited for handheld, battery-powered, wireless platforms such as PDAs, smart phones and Internet appliances.

"As a Symbian Competence Center, ARM has extensive experience porting the Symbian OS to new SoC and ASSP devices," said David Boorman, software consultancy services manager, ARM. "Use of our advanced emulation methodology enabled software development to be completed well in advance of the hardware, reducing the time our partners, such as Motorola, require for system integration and testing of the final silicon implementation."
