Oki Licenses ARM Chip Core for Use in Net Devices

STOCKHOLM (04/25/2000) - Microprocessor design company ARM Ltd. has licensed its ARM920T processor core to Japan's Oki Electric Industry Co. Ltd. for use in handheld Internet devices, the Cambridge, U.K.-based vendor announced today.

Oki plans to use the ARM processor core in combination with its own system LSI (large-scale integration) technologies to develop integrated processors for use in applications ranging from third-generation mobile handsets for WCDMA (wideband code division multiple access) networks, PDAs (personal digital assistants) and other Internet devices, ARM said in a statement.

The first samples of Oki's ARM920T-based system chips, produced on the Japanese company's 0.18-micron CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) process technology, will become available in October, according to the statement.

ARM specializes in developing low-cost RISC (reduced instruction set computing)-based chip designs with low power consumption.
