Multithreading boosts processor
The MIPS MT ASE (application specific extension) is a new multithreading extension to the industry-standard MIPS architecture.
The MIPS MT ASE (application specific extension) is a new multithreading extension to the industry-standard MIPS architecture Now, SoC designers are able to significantly increase delivered system performance through higher processor efficiency in applications that can take advantage of a multitasking approach to SoC design
Additionally, dedicated IP (such as DSPs) can be eliminated, lowering system costs by migrating more independent functions onto a single MT enabled MIPS-based core.
The MIPS MT ASE is tailored toward silicon companies doing MIPS-based designs, and makes the MIPS32 and MIPS64 architectures the only ones within the embedded industry to offer a full spectrum of solutions for SoC customers.
Today's feature-rich devices are incorporating more and more functionality to deliver an enhanced user experience.
