Not YET sold by anyone. It's the next generation ARM wave, and it will
take a little while to see devices built around it. Same thing for the
other variants (the A8 and future R derivatives).
Assuming it becomes an industry standard...
Anyone remembering the Itanium?
While the Cortex is probably an improvement over ARM,
it may not be improvement enough
to motivate people to pay millions of dollars.
Think most semiconductor companies will adopt a wait and see.
If needed, it can be licensed and introduced quickly.
If not needed, noone will bother...
One of the arguments for an ARM, is the second source.
The first company to release a Cortex will not have a second source...
It will compete with the coldfires, SH series etc.
Ulf, we're waiting for the ARM Cortex vs AVR32 battle. :)
Doesn't look like there are Semiconductor companies in the official Cortex
M3 list of licensees...
T.I has licensed the Cortex-A8, but I think this is for Nokia and alike...
The AVR32 seems to run at higher frequency and has an MMU
so they may be focusing on different markets.
