Boosted performance for 32bit soft core
MIPS Technologies has launched its next generation 32bit, high-performance, low-power core, the MIPS32 4KE family
It offers the highest dhrystone MIPS/MHz performance available in a synthesisable 32bit core. The 4KE family not only offers 1.4 Dhrystone MIPS/MHz, but also provides configurable features that increase performance while reducing die size and power consumption and, ultimately, total system cost.
Features such as 128Kbyte of cache and a coprocessor interface allow users to easily configure a 4KE core to maximise performance in their SoC applications.
MIPS16e code compression can reduce memory requirements by up to 40 percent, and extensive clock gating significantly reduces power consumption.
And, because the 4KE cores are synthesisable, enabling easy integration into SoC designs, they are a cost-effective, quick time-to-market solution for digital consumer applications, from ultralow-power mobile devices to emerging home networking products.
"The 4KE family represents a major milestone in our MIPS32 technology roadmap by giving MIPS licensees a whole new level of performance and flexibility, with features that allow them to maximize performance and power efficiency, reduce die size, lower overall system cost and create a competitive advantage for their product", said Victor Peng, vice president of engineering at MIPS Technologies.
