Huawei Technologies and ARM today announced a licensing agreement for ARM7 and ARM9 family microprocessors.
Huawei, a networking and wireless solutions provider, will launch a range of new wireless products based on the ARM architecture in 2006. The company's existing strength in mobility ideally positions it to target the WCDMA wireless market with the ARM Powered solutions.
Huawei has licensed the ARM7TDMI microprocessor core and the ARM926EJ Prime Starter Kit–which includes the ARM926EJ microprocessor core, the ARM926EJ PrimeXsys Platform and the Embedded Trace Macrocell module. The ARM926EJ Prime Starter Kit provides Huawei with methodology and hardware for verification and system integration–and a platform for accelerating new designs to market.
Huawei will also leverage the ARM Connected Community, including ARM Foundry Program Partners, for third-party development tools and support for technologies. This also means members of the ARM Partner network in China will have even greater access to design their own system-on-chip products, supporting the advancement of the electronics industry in China.
