Immediately available for cell-based ASIC applications, the new member of LSI Logic Corp.'s portfolio of processor cores in Gflx 0.11?m technology runs at 425MHz.

Provided as a hard macro, the ARM1136J-S processor core features a 16KB instruction cache, 16KB data cache, 16KB instruction TCM (tightly-coupled memory) and 16KB data TCM. Also included is a memory management unit (MMU) for OSs such as Linux and 64-bit instruction and data AHB interfaces that enable high-performance access to memory systems. According to the company, the device offers seamless ASIC design flow integration with highly accurate timing models and over 99 percent fault coverage.

"LSI Logic provides the highest performing microprocessor cores as part of our CoreWare library and achieving 425MHz with the ARM1136J-S core allows our customers to synchronize the core to a key Fiber Channel frequency," said Harmel Sangha, Director of CoreWare Marketing, LSI Logic.

The ARM1136J-S offering includes what LSI Logic claims as the industry's first ARM1136 core reference design with an Interrupt Controller, UART, GPIO, Timers, Internal SRAM, EBIU and APB bridge. Delivered in RTL, the reference design provides a streamlined methodology for customers to customize, implement, and verify a custom processor subsystem for integration into a SoC.

"The reference design provides a complete solution around the ARM1136, providing designers a jump-start on their system development and allowing them to focus on the parts of their design that offer the most value," Sangha added.

The company's CoreWare IP library provides one of the industry's most comprehensive set of proven IP solutions designed to work seamlessly with the standard-cell ASIC and RapidChip Platform ASIC design flows. CoreWare IP includes GigaBlaze and HyperPHY high-speed standards-compliant SerDes, high-performance ARM and MIPS processors and associated systems, licensable ZSP DSP cores, processor peripherals and AMBA on-chip-bus structures, USB cores, Memory PHYs and Controllers, Ethernet MAC and PHY cores, PCI Express, XGXS, SPI4.2 and other protocol layer IP.
