eeTimes.com: "A Chinese graduate student is offering freely downloadable source code for
the description of a synthesizable processor core claimed to be compatible with the
ARM7 32-bit RISC processor developed by ARM Holdings plc (Cambridge, England).
The core is available through the OpenCores Web site.
Although the core is a student project and unlikely to hurt ARM's position as a leading
supplier of RISC microprocessors, its availability could be seen to undermine ARM's
control of its architecture."
