ARM Announces Processor Licensing Agreement With PMC-Sierra

PMC-Sierra has licensed the high-performance ARM Cortex-A8 processor and ARM11 MPCore multicore processor for a broad range of designs, including devices for Passive Optical Networks (PON) and ASIC devices.

The ARM Cortex-A8 processor scales in speed from 600 MHz to more than 1GHz. The ARM11 MPCore multicore processor provides a scalable solution that can be configured to contain between one and four processors, delivering over 3000 Dhrystone MIPS of aggregate performance. The ARM11 MPCore multicore processor also provides software portability across single-CPU and multi-CPU designs and offers an enhanced memory system capable of over 6GB (Gigabytes) per second throughput.
