Succession

ARM7 is the successor to the ARM6, an ARM microarchitecture designed by ARM Holdings for the mobile market. This microarchitecture is designed as an IP core and is sold to other semiconductor companies to be implemented in their own chips. The ARM7 was the first major microarchitecture to be used in multimedia mobile applications and one of the most successful ARM microarchitectures ever designed.
