ARM Ltd and Semiconductor Mfg Int. Corp. (SMIC) have signed an agreement to develop an ARM7TDMI microprocessor core-based test chip targeted for SMIC's 0.185m CMOS process.

The ARM7TDMI test chip is expected to enable local semiconductor houses to develop and validate products around ARM's microprocessor cores. With a customer base already established in China for both companies, this agreement is said to mark the foundation of a complete package of services, from delivery of semiconductor IP through design and validation to manufacturing. The test chip is scheduled to complete validation by the end of the year and ARM7TDMI core-based ICs are expected soon thereafter.
