On my birthday Fujitsu announced a new ARM9 based SoC. The new part is a lower cost version of their Jade D processor. The MR86R03 also known as the “Jade L” is aimed at applications requiring high CPU performance combined with sophisticated 2D/3D graphics for applications including ATMs, HMI panels and automotive. It combines a 320MHz ARM926-EJS core with the Coral PA graphics accelerator.
We don’t make enough noise about our long-standing relationship with Fujitsu. We have many design wins in automotive with Fujitsu both on the Jade D and Coral graphics accelerator. We have been talking about taking this success into other markets and with the introduction of the new Jade L I think there’s a real opportunity to make this a reality.
