Advanced RISC Machines showcased its ARM 7TDSP processor, code-named Piccolo at the Microprocessor Forum. It combines a 32-bit RISC processor with a digital signal processor (DSP) on a single bus. DSPs are adept at handling multimedia data types. ARM said that the new chip will be ideal for applications that need both a microcontroller and a DSP running real-time operating systems, such as smart phones, modems, or Internet appliances such as set-top boxes. It will be available in early 1997.
