The ARM946E-S™ is a synthesizable macrocell combining an ARM9E-S™ processor core with instruction and data caches, tightly-coupled instruction and data SRAM memory with protection units, write buffer, and an AMBA™ (Advanced Microprocessor Bus Architecture) AHB (Advanced High-performance Bus) interface. It is a member of the ARM9E-S Thumb® family of high-performance 32-bit System-on-Chip (SoC) processors, and it is well suited to a wide range of embedded applications. The size of the instruction and data cache, and the instruction and data SRAM is individually configurable allowing you to tailor hardware to the embedded application. The ARM946E-S provides a complete high-performance processor solution, offering considerable savings in chip complexity and area, chip system design, power consumption, and time-to-market.
