Dongbu HiTek has licensed the ARM926EJ-S processor to include in its intellectual property (IP) portfolio. Optimized for Dongbu's processing at the 130nm node, the newly added ARM IP enables reduced time and cost in designing SoC solutions that target the increasingly complex mobile handset and consumer products coming to market.

As a member of the ARM9E family of processors, the ARM926EJ-S processor enables multitasking applications where full memory management, high performance, small die size and low power are all important. It also supports 32bit ARM and 16bit ARM Thumb instruction sets as well as the efficient execution of Java byte codes.

"Fabless firms using the ARM926EJ-S processor optimized for our 130nm process should be able to shrink SoC development time by several months while also realizing significant cost savings," said Jae Song, executive VP of Dongbu HiTek.

He confirmed that the ARM926EJ-S processor represents the third ARM processor added to Dongbu's IP portfolio, preceded by the ARM7TDMI processor used to design chips for low-cost mobile handsets such as MP3 players and the ARM922T processor used to design chips for wireless communications.

Added Song, "The increasingly complex products coming to marketincluding DMB phones, PMPs, STBs, digital cameras and game consolesall need the performance, small footprint and low-power consumption that the newly added ARM processor provides."
