ARM Multiprocessing Technology Powers Groundbreaking NVIDIA Tegra Mobile Computer-on-a-Chip

NVIDIA Tegra, Based on the ARM11 MPCore Multicore Processor, Marks a Major Step Forward in Enabling Next-Generation Portable Computing Devices

CAMBRIDGE, England, June 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ARM [; (NASDAQ: ARMH)] today announced that the NVIDIA Tegra mobile computer-on-a-chip, launched at this year's COMPUTEX TAIPEI, is based on the ARM11(TM) MPCore(TM) multicore processor technology. As the world's smallest, full HD computer-on-a-chip, the NVIDIA Tegra is highly optimized for next-generation smartphones and Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) providing users with a full Internet experience, HD video and brilliant 3D touch interfaces. This is the first time that ARM processor technology has been licensed specifically for an SoC targeting the ultra-portable, ultra-low power, MID market.

"Today's consumers want portable computing devices that are tailored for their specific mobile needs, yet still deliver the same vibrant and engaging experience as their desktop PCs," said Mike Rayfield, general manager, mobile business unit, NVIDIA. "Combining high-performance and ultra-low power, the NVIDIA Tegra is the world's smallest, full HD computer-on-a-chip and is the ideal choice for device manufacturers looking to design feature-rich, yet small and elegant portable devices for the always-connected generation."

"Today's launch of the ARM processor-based NVIDIA Tegra is a testament to our long and fruitful relationship with NVIDIA, who were one of the first licensees of our ARM11 MPCore multicore processor technology," said Warren East, CEO, ARM. "The launch of the NVIDIA Tegra marks a major step forward in enabling the next computing revolution driven by ultra-low power, ultra-portable Mobile Internet Devices, and ARM is proud to be at the center of this game-changing technology."

The ARM MPCore multicore processor technology is designed to provide an unprecedented level of flexibility, performance, power efficiency and functionality, making it especially suited for smartphone and MID applications.

The ARM11 MPCore multicore processor can be configured for implementations using between one and four processors. The unique scalability of the ARM11MPCore processor provides device OEMs with the optimum level of performance for their application, while at the same time allowing each processor to go into standby, dormant or power-off energy management states to help control the level of dynamic and static energy consumed by the processor.
