ARM Ltd has licensed its ARM922T embedded processor core to Synad, a fabless WLAN SoC company.

Synad will use the ARM core on its Mercury 5G WLAN 802.11a, b, and g chipset and will be deployed to run the 802.11a/b/g media access control (MAC) and support all key wireless network security features including TKIP, AES, WPA, and 802.1x.

The ARM922T hard macrocell is suitable for a wide range of platform OS-based applications. The ARM922T core features instruction and data caches, a memory management unit (MMU) to enable support for all major OSs, AMBA bus-compliant interfaces, and support for the ARM real-time trace technology with the optional ETM9 product and the Embedded Trace Macrocell product.

"The technical suitability of ARM cores for networking applications, the range of system level components and solutions we offer to speed design, and our flexible licensing programs, enable burgeoning companies like Synad to embrace and deliver advanced solutions for key market applications like WLAN," said Denise Kerstein, networking segment manager, ARM.
