Over 5 Billion ARM9 processors have been shipped so far
- The ARM9 family is the most popular ARM processor family ever
- 250+ silicon licensees
- 100+ licensees of the ARM926EJ-S processor
- ARM9 processors continue to be successfully deployed across a wide range of products and applications.
- The ARM9 family offers proven, low risk and easy to use designs which reduce costs and enable rapid time to market.
- The ARM9 family consists of three processors - ARM926EJ-S, ARM946E-S and ARM968E-S.
Range of applications
ARM9 processors are at the heart of advanced digital products across multiple applications
ARM9 family processors deliver deterministic high performance and flexibility for demanding and cost-sensitive embedded applications. The rich DSP extensions available remove the need for a separate DSP in the SoC design. In addition, the PPA is ideally suited to a wide range of applications.
|Consumer||Smartphones, PDA, Set top box, PMP, Electronic toys, Digital still cameras, Digital video cameras etc|
|Networking||Wireless LAN, 802.11, Bluetooth, Firewire, SCSI, 2.5G/3G Baseband etc|
|Automotive||Power train, ABS, Body systems, Navigation, Infotainment etc|
|Embedded||USB controllers,bluetooth controllers, medical scanners etc|
|Storage||HDD controllers, solid state drives etc|
From a single design to perpetual ownership
- Processors are available to licese in a number of forms
- Available as per-use, multi-year term, and perpetual use licenses
- Also available as hard-macros to reduce time-to-market and design risks
Planning for the future
- The ARM9 family has a robust roadmap linking to the latest Cortex processors
- The Cortex-A and Cortex-R families provide powerful, feature-rich options for easy migration of ARM9 designs to the next generation
Over 650 members in the Connected Community supporting ARM9 processors
- Broadest ecosystem of compilers, debuggers and RTOS tools in the industry
- Plentiful design services partners to aid in design task
- Large variety of third party IP available to integrate with processors.
