The essential guide to IT transformation

Samsung Semiconductor is to develop system-on-chip products using the ARM9TDMI and ARM920T cores. The chips will combine ARM core, embedded memory and mixed signal technology, with the ARM9TDMI core being available from Samsung in Q2, and the ARM920T in Q3. Samsung will be aiming the system-on-chip products at PDAs, smartphones, set-top boxes, networking, storage and consumer multimedia. Samsung has also moved into the CE camp by joining the ARM Consortium for Windows CE, which aims to optimise CE for the ARM architecture. Other members include Cirrus Logic, Intel, LG and Texas Instruments. Samsung already sells ARM-based chips, but the latest moves suggest that the company intends to press ahead with finished products based on ARM, and using CE as the OS rather than Symbian. In the past Samsung has shown smartphone and PDA prototypes, but has been slow to bring finished product to market. But it will still be some time before the company gets near to shipping product, as it appears to be banking on the 920T's support for Windows CE-based MMU, data cache and instruction cache to produce a competent CE-based package. ®
