Qualcomm Licenses Arm Micro Processor Core
Qualcomm, Inc., of San Diego, California, and ARM Limited, of Cambridge, UK, reached an agreement last week to use the ARM1136J-S microprocessor core for advanced wireless voice and data devices.
The ARM1136J-S core will be used in future Mobile Station Modema (MSMa) chipsets for mobile devices that support high-speed wireless voice and data applications. Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) technology, is a growing technology for cellular communications. CDMA2000 enables 3G wireless networks around the world.
The ARM microprocessor core will enhance Qualcomm’s Launchpad suite of applications, including multimedia, position location and other advanced features.
ARM provides16/32 bit embedded RISC microprocessors and licenses its high-performance low-cost power efficient processors, peripherals and system-on-a-chip (SoC) designs to international electronics companies. Qualcomm is one of the first partners to use the new microprocessor core.
