ARM1136J-S and ARM1136JF-S: two new ARM11 cores

Yesterday at Microprocessor Forum English ARM announced two new ARM1136J-S and ARM1136JF-S processor cores. The new chips are the first products with ARM11 processor architecture, first announced in April at Embedded Processor Forum. Both support ARMv6 instruction set.

Besides, ARM announced the new ARM11 PrimeXsys platform, based on mentioned ARM11 chips.

ARM1136J-S and ARM1136JF-S are designed for a wide variety of consumer electronics, wireless, comm devices: consoles, digital cameras, 2.5/3G mobiles, VoIP tools, broadband modems, WLAN access points, etc.

New ARM11 chips, already offered for licensing, feature 533 MHz and higher clocks and will be made using 0.13-micron process technology. Their performance is estimated 600 Dhrystone MIPs (w/o optimizations) at up to 200 mW power consumption. Typical power consumption of 0.13-micron ARM1136J-S and ARM1136JF-S at 400 MHz, 1V voltage makes 160 mW.

Chips feature 8-stage pipeline with 2-cycle cache, enabling to raise clocks in the future. Both feature flexible high-performance memory engine with programmable instruction set, data cache, and TCM DMA memory for realtime data processing. Memory management unit (MMU) is supported by Microsoft, Symbian, WindRiver, and Linux. Chips feature four 64-bit ports, connected to the memory controller, support 32-bit DDR, and feature 32-bit peripheral bus.

The letter F in ARM1136JF-S marking means built-in floating-point coprocessor. Both cores support ARM Jazelle extensions for faster Java processing, and ARM "E" extensions for DSP optimization. Both cores are supported by ARM RealView, featuring RealView Compilation Tools, RealView Debugger, Multi-ICE, RealView ICE, and RealViewTrace.

The new ARM11 PrimeXsys Platform includes developer tools for infrastructure development and verification with 64/32-bit bus, DDR, SDRAM, ROM, flash, and sync flash support; ARM MBX HR-S and MBX R-S 3D-graphics core support, Windows CE .NET, Symbian OS 7.0, and VxWorks binary level support.
