processor A RISC microprocessor architecture from
Advanced RISC Machines Ltd. (ARM). Building upon the ARM6
family, the goal of the ARM7 design was to offer higher levels
of raw compute performance at even lower levels of power
consumption. The ARM7 architecture is now (Dec 1994) the most
powerful low voltage RISC processor available on the market.
The ARM7 offers several architectural extensions which address
specific market needs, encompassing fast multiply and
innovative embedded ICE support. Software development tools
are available.
The ARM7 architecture is made up of a core CPU plus a range of
system peripherals which can be added to a CPU core to give a
complete system on a chip, e.g. 4K or 8K cache, MemoryManagement Unit, Write Buffer, coprocessor interface,
ICEbreaker embedded ICE support and JTAG boundaryscan. The ARM710 microprocessor is built around the ARM7
