A novel 32bit RISC core brings a new level of code density and power economy to deeply embedded applications.

A novel 32bit RISC core brings a new level of code density and power economy to deeply embedded applications.

The XAP3 core is available in Verilog RTL and can be fabricated in fewer than 50,000 gates in a variety of ASIC and FPGA technologies.

Unlike many other cores on the market, XAP3's instruction set has been optimised to exploit the code-efficient features of state-of-the-art C compiler technology, substantially reducing memory requirements and power consumption.

In addition it supports position independent code and privileged modes, giving IC developers and their users a platform to create more versatile, robust, field-upgradeable products.

XAP3 is the latest addition to Cambridge Consultants'
