ARM announced that Sarnoff Corp. has licensed its ARM11 MPCore multi-core processor. Sarnoff disclosed that they will be using the processor to develop high-performance, low-power mobile vision SoC.

The ARM11 MPCore multi-core processor is capable of processing rates in excess of 750MHz in current 90nm process technologies and offers the full scalability of multiprocessing, said the press release. This multi-core processor supports software compatible, symmetric multi-processor operating systems and RTOS. Each processor also features a vector floating-point unit, digital signal processing and single instruction, multiple data instructions which further accelerates signal processing, physics, scientific and graphic computations by up to 10 times, added ARM.

The ARM11 MPCore multi-core processor provides a scalable solution that can address the requirements of multiple designs. A dual-core 400MHz targeted implementation of ARM11 MPCore processor delivers more than 1,000DMIPS of aggregate performance while occupying less than 2.1mm2 of silicon and consuming 230mW, excluding caches. Compared with the competing multi-threaded processors, said ARM, the dual-core ARM11 MPCore processor offers more performance and greater power efficiency, with simpler and more predictable throughput for threaded software.

"The ARM11 MPCore multi-core processor has been widely adopted across a broad range of applications throughout the home, mobile, automotive and enterprise markets, due to its flexibility and scalability," said John Cornish, VP of product marketing, processors, ARM. "By selecting the ARM11 MPCore multi-core processor, Sarnoff has extended the range of ARM11 MPCore processor applications into a new market for high-performance devices."

ARM Ltd will be demonstrating MPCore technology at next month's 6th Annual Embedded Systems Conference-Taiwan in Taiwan.
