Atsana Semiconductor Corp. has licensed ARM922T core through the ARM Foundry Program. Atsana will use the core to develop embedded processors used in multimedia applications such as mobile phones, PDAs, PCs, and network digital cameras.

Atsana's embedded processor, which is expected to ship in Q3 of this year, is based on a parallel highly scalable, low-power architecture. The patent-pending technology integrates thousands of processing elements into an array of RAM, the company said. The chip delivers the processing ability for encoding or decoding video and images to standards such as MPEG-4, JPEG, or JPEG2000.

"By licensing the ARM922T core, we are ensuring our ability to deliver a high-performance, low-power processor, which will encourage growth in the wireless multimedia market," said Michael Krause, COO, Atsana. "ARM is the most widely adopted embedded RISC architecture, and it will offer our customers the benefits of programmability, flexibility, and an extensive third-party toolset."
