LONDON ARC International has now signed up more than 100 licensees for its patented configurable SoC technology.
ARC (Elstree, UK) has not named the deal which took it through the milestone but its licensees include systems OEMs and semiconductor companies, such as Broadcom, Fujitsu, Infineon, LeapFrog, SanDisk, Siano Mobile Silicon, Sony, UPEK and TTPCom.
Earlier this month IPWireless took a license for the configurable ARC 725D processor core for use in their latest SoC ASIC that is targeted for the company's next generation 3G TD-CDMA broadband wireless devices. This will be the third in a series of ARC-based designs from IPWireless.
In May Chips&Media licensed an ARC 605 processor core for use in a new MPEG2 codec design which is targeted at high volume set-top box applications.
