Metalink has taken a licence for the MIPS32 M4K core and the MIPS32 4KEc core with CorExtend capabilities

By incorporating these powerful 32bit cores into its broadband applications, Metalink builds on its portfolio of innovative MIPS-based products by continuing to offer cost-effective solutions for the dynamic and challenging telecommunications market worldwide. Metalink will use the M4K and 4KEc cores, as it has done with the 4Km core, in combination with its universal software programming interfaces.

This unified architecture, called the Olympus-DSL platform, supports multiple industry standards including VDSL, SHDSL, HDSL2, HDSL4, SDSL and HDSL.

Customers, who have already adopted Metalink's Olympus-DSL platform, are top-tier worldwide vendors.

"We evaluated several RISC cores, considering the core performance and capabilities necessary for our application, and found MIPS' cores most suitable for our requirements", said David Pereg, Vice President of Engineering at Metalink.

"Having the option to define our own instructions with the CorExtend capabilities in the 4KEc core gives us a significant performance advantage, allowing us to minimise the required memory space and enable faster execution".

"Metalink has been developing a compelling line of MIPS-based networking products for several years.

By applying their intimate knowledge of the broadband access market and exploiting the capabilities of the CorExtend technology, they can add functions that boost performance and optimise their application in ways that aren't possible with other industry-standard cores", said Jack Browne, Vice President of Worldwide Sales at MIPS Technologies.

"We look forward to their continued worldwide leadership and innovation in the networking space".
