Renesas Technology Corp. and ARM announced that Renesas has licensed the ARM11 MPCore multiprocessor, enabling the company to produce and sell LSI semiconductor solutions incorporating the ARM processor.

Renesas previously licensed the ARM946E-S processor and the ARM1136JF-S processor. As part of Renesas' multicore strategy, the present licensing agreement forms part of Renesas' bid to broaden its product portfolio in addition to its own CPU core processors and offer customers greater choice.

"In its bid to create innovative, comprehensive solutions, Renesas has been developing buses and memory architectures that deliver high-speed data transmission and memory, as well as software and middleware that drive these systems' performance, based on CPU cores and IP systems," shared Hideo Inayoshi, SVP and executive general manager of Renesas' systems solution business group.

The ARM11 MPCore processor's open architecture is a proven solution. Its solid development environment, including test chips and an evaluation board, enables developers to create robust system solutions quickly. Renesas plans to roll out its first products using the ARM11 MPCore processor in 2008, with a primary focus on digital home electronics and office-automation systems.
