A microprocessor based on the ARM8 processor core designed by Advanced RISC Machines Ltd. Planned features include a 60-100Mhz clock rate; 0.35-0.4 micron silicon fabrication; an improvement on the ARM7’s 1.4 cycle/instruction; a 16 Kbyte cache.
Some estimates were 100 MIPS and 120 Kdhrystones at 70Mhz (twice the ARM700). Samples of the ARM800 are expected to be available in late 1995.
It may run on a voltage below 3.3V.
Digital Semiconductor’s Hudson fab is 0.35 micron and they have announced a licensing deal for the ARM architecture (see StrongARM).
