processor A 32-bit RISC microprocessor based on the
ARM7 processor core designed by Advanced RISC Machines
Ltd. The A710 is the successor to the ARM610 processor. It
was released in July 1994 by VLSI Technology Inc.
The ARM710 can run at 40MHz (fastest sample 55MHz) dissipating
500mW with a 5V supply or 25MHz with 3.3V supply. It has an 8
The ARM700 and ARM710 processors represent a significant
improvement over the ARM610 processors. They have a higher
maximum clock speed and a number of architectural improvements
such as double the size of internal cache, this means that
more of any process can be executed internally without
accessing the (relatively) slow external memory. Other
improvements are an improved write buffer and an enlarged
Translation Lookaside Buffer in the MMU. All of these
improvements increase the performance of the system and
deliver more real performance than a simple comparison of
clock speeds would indicate.
The ARM710 has been optimised for integer performance. The
FPA11 floating point coprocessor has a peak throughput of
up to 5 MFLOPS and achieves an average throughput in excess
of 3 MFLOPS for a range of calculations.
