Shanghai Jade Technologies Co. Ltd., a leading developer of DCP (Digital Content Processor) SoC in China, and ARM, the industry's leading provider of 16/32-bit embedded RISC processor technology, today announced that Shanghai Jade is the first company to license the ARM926EJ Prime Starter Kit.
Shanghai Jade will leverage the ARM technology in system-on-chip (SoC) designs for digital content processors for next-generation products for the Chinese consumer, communication and computing (3C) markets. Production is scheduled for the Q4 of 2004.
The ARM926EJ Prime Starter Kit, introduced to the ARM Foundry Program in October 2003, incorporates the ARM926EJ core, the ARM926EJ PrimeXsys Platform and the Embedded Trace Macrocell module, providing access to the first Jazelle technology-enabled ARM core along with a platform for accelerating designs to market. As a result of licensing the ARM926EJ Prime Starter Kit, Shanghai Jade will be able to create low-power designs that feature ARM Jazelle technology for optimum Java byte code execution performance, required of next-generation devices.
