We see from your search that you're looking for information on the term "Parallel processing", and we have a large number of manufacturers' news releases and technical articles here on Electronicstalk which will be of interest. Let me be your guide.
 
Start with the news release Image partnership draws on optical research from Silicon Hive, which we summarised at the time by saying "Silicon Hive will enhance its HiveFlex ISP 2200 processor's instruction set for Apical Imaging's engines, resulting in area and power-efficient silicon designs". Earlier in the week, we featured the news release Tiny TV receiver fits on a single CMOS die from Abilis Systems: "Abilis Systems' AS-101 supports the integration of both DVB-H and DVB-T standards in mobile phones, portable media players as well as PND".
 
In February 2008, we covered the news from Renesas Technology Europe concerning its SH7786 - take a look at Multicore processors aim for automotive multimedia which says: "Each device incorporates two Renesas Technology SH-4A high-performance CPU cores to achieve superior processing power of up to 1920MIPS".
 
Take a look also at the news release from Pentek, VMEbus board provides serial resources, as well as Test technologies keep up with design complexity from National Instruments, and Low-cost FPGAs offer dense logic and memory from Xilinx.
