NEC Electronics Corp. has unveiled two 32bit ARM processor cores that can be used with its SoC design methodology to develop high-speed products for networking, wireless, digital consumer, imaging, storage, automotive and industrial applications.

NEC's 90nm, 700MHz (931MHz under nominal process conditions) dual-core implementation of the ARM11 MPCore multicore processor is being touted as the highest-performing ARM processor core on the market. Meanwhile, the ARM926EJ-S processor core is said to be the industry's fastest at 130nm, clocking in at 400MHz (532MHz under nominal process conditions).

The 400MHz ARM926EJ-S processor is available in NEC's CB-130M IP library. The 700MHz ARM11 MPCore multicore processor is scheduled to be available for SoC integration before year-end in the CB-90M IP library. Both processors are available for either cell-based IC or customer-owned tooling applications.
