Mon Mar 30 2009, 14:22

BRITISH CHIP SHOP ARM has announced the addition of two new processors to its Fast Models range.

The Cortex-A9 MPCore multicore processor and the Cortex-M3 processor are purportedly designed to enable rapid development and optimisation of software on single and multicore Cortex processor-based virtual platforms. The firm also reckons they can achieve speeds of up to 250MHz to enable real-time execution of software.

Middleware and drivers for platforms based on the new ARM CPUs are available to developers ahead of hardware availability, which is expected to happen mid April. µ
