ARM Ltd has licensed its ARM926EJ-S embedded processor core to Conexant Systems Inc., a supplier of semiconductor solutions for communications applications. Conexant will use the licensed ARM core on its latest family of home network processors (HNPs).

The ARM926EJ-S macrocell is fully synthesizable and features a 32-bit RISC CPU, DSP functionality, ARM Jazelle technology, size instruction and data caches, coupled memory (TCM) interfaces, and a memory management unit that supports operating systems such as the Symbian OS, Linux, and Windows CE. Conexant's collaboration with ARM also spans the primary family of ARM cores to include the ARM7TDMI core, the ARM920T core, and the ARM940T core.

"Our selection of the RM926EJ-S solution was based on the core's flexibility in supporting a wide range of operating systems, its enhanced DSP technology for voice and video and its configurable cache and tightly coupled memory - all of which make it an ideal platform for our next-generation of semiconductor solutions for the broadband digital home," said Mohamed Ben-Romdhane, director of Intellectual Property and Software for Conexant's Broadband Communications segment.
