ARM is the world’s leading provider of physical semiconductor intellectual property (IP) for the design of complex System-on-Chip (SoC) integrated circuits. ARM is at the heart of Digital Still Camera (DSC) technology, enabling our silicon partners to integrate the IP functionality into a single System On Chip (SOC). Designers are free to choose from a family of Processors, Graphics Processors, System IP and Physical IP that provide the best performance, cost and power optimization.
Similar to today's mobile phones, portable applications such as DSCs require extremely efficient operation due to battery life requirements. ARM is an excellent fit for this market and is the main controller of choice in imaging applications.
ARM Physical IP Embedded Memory at 28 nm to 65 nm creates the high-density on-chip memories on a SoC that can exceed 1 MByte today. The resultant memories, optimized for both performance and power, offer fault tolerance to increase manufacturing yields.
ARM Physical IP DDR PHY enables robust off-chip memory interface performance at high clock-speed and low power.
