ARM Holdings Plc has unveiled its latest weapons in the fight to power the next generation of smart devices.

Two new cores, the ARM1136J-S and the ARM1136JF-S, form the heart of Cambridge, UK-based ARM's latest products. These are the first implementations of the ARM11 architecture, announced at the Embedded Processor Forum in San Jose, California in April 2002.

ARM intends the new cores for applications such as set-top boxes, digital cameras, 2.5 and 3G mobile phones, voice-over-IP (VoIP) infrastructure equipment, broadband modems, residential gateways, wireless LAN access points and security devices. A number of embedded operating systems are supported, including Windows CE, Palm OS5, Symbian OS, Wind River's VxWorks and Linux.

Both cores have been designed with high performance and low power consumption in mind. The company claims the cores are the first to deliver 600 Dhrystone MIPs (un-optimized) at under 200mW, with a typical operating frequency of over 533MHz in 0.13 micron process.

The ARM1136J-S core also forms the basis of ARM's new ARM11 PrimeXsys Platfrom, which is intended to be the standard framework for all ARM11-based designs. The platform includes all the hardware, software and verification IP necessary bringing ARM11-based system-on-chip (SoC) designs to market in the shortest possible time.
