1.1. About the ARM946E-S

The ARM946E-S is a synthesizable macrocell combining an ARM processor. It is a member of the ARM9 Thumb family of high-performance, 32-bit system-on-chip processor solutions.

The ARM946E-S has tightly-coupled SRAM memory, and instruction and data caches and is targeted at a wide range of embedded applications where high-performance, low system cost, small die size and low power are all important.

The ARM946E-S processor macrocell is a Harvard architecture cached processor that provides a complete high-performance processor subsystem, including:

Providing this complete high frequency subsystem frees the system-on-a-chip designer to concentrate on design issues unique to their system. The synthesizable nature of the device eases integration into ASIC technologies.
