Renesas Technology Corp. has licensed the ARM1136JF-S processor for use in its future advanced mobile phone designs, and the ARM946E-S processor for its ASICs used in consumer applications. By licensing ARM processors, Renesas anticipates to reduce time-to-market while providing its customers with value-added solutions that support device security, media acceleration and portability requirements.

The mobile and consumer device markets continue to evolve rapidly, creating an increased need for OEMs to deliver feature-rich devices faster and at lower cost. To help their OEM customers meet consumer demands for feature-rich devices, companies are increasingly turning to ARM to provide them with a proven technology foundation to help speed development time.

A June 2005 Gartner report, "Strong Growth Returns to the Market for Semiconductor IP," noted that semiconductor IP revenue increased 21 percent in 2004 compared to 2003. Gartner also reported that microprocessors make up the largest part of the semiconductor IP market, and that ARM holds the largest share of the market at 25 percent.

The ARM946E-S synthesizable macrocell is well suited to a wide range of embedded applications. Select features include a combination of flexible instruction and data caches, instruction and data tightly coupled memory (TCM) interfaces, a protection unit, and an AMBA interconnect-compliant AHB interface.
