ARM unveils high-speed processor for mobile devices

British semiconductor designer ARM Holdings has unveiled a new processor that will enable devices such as mobile phones, digital cameras and TVs to achieve processing speeds now only available in computers, Reuters reported.

ARM, which designs processor cores and then lets other semiconductor firms include them in bigger chips, said its Cortex-A8 processor would help double the performance while using the same amount of power, and help run applications such as video, TV and gaming on mobiles.

The company has signed up five licensees for Cortex-A8, and expects products based on the 1GHz processor for mobiles to be shipped out in a few years. Cortex will be for phones hitting the market in 2008 or 2009.

Chipmakers that have licensed the Cortex-A8 include Texas Instruments, Samsung Electronics, Matsushita Electric and Freescale Semiconductor.
