ARM8

ARM8

(processor)
A RISC microprocessor core designed by Advanced RISC Machines Ltd. with 50000 transistors. The design of the ARM8 is not yet public but it is not superscalar. The ARM8 will form the core of the ARM800 microprocessor integrated circuit.

The ARM 32-bit RISC architecture is fully compatible and capable of running the same software across a wide performance range, including the ARM7TDMI Thumb (Industry's code density leader) through the ARM8 up to the powerful StrongARM microprocessor (Industry's MIPs/Watt leader).
The introduction of ARM9 fortifies our performance roadmap between the ARM7, ARM8 and StrongARM and offers OEMs, standardizing on the ARM family, a wider choice in performance, power and die size," said Robin Saxby, ARM president and CEO.
BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 2, 1996--JMI Software Systems today announced that a new version of its C EXECUTIVE real-time kernel will support the ARM microprocessor family, including ARM6, ARM7, ARM7TDMI (Thumb), ARM8 and StrongARM processors.
The ARM8 architecture will extend ARM's product portfolio by filling the gap between the elegantly minimal, embeddable ARM7 RISC cores and the very high performance StrongARM processor.
The new ARM8 architecture is aimed at systems which will benefit from a high performance cached processor, but are still sensitive to system power consumption and cost.
ARM8 will step in where even greater performance is required.
The most significant change in ARM8 is extending the core pipeline to five stages, from three in the ARM7.
ARM7, ARM8 and StrongARM are different implementations for different jobs and complement each other well in fleshing out ARM's ability to satisfy a wide range of customer performance needs.
