The highest performing 32bit synthesisable processor core family in the embedded market has been released for general availability and licensing by OEMs and semiconductor companies To date, the MIPS32 24KT core family has experienced the fastest early rate of licensing of any MIPS Technologies' core in the company's history

The product family is targeted at high-volume market applications such as broadband access, wireless, networking, digital television and office automation.

Silicon based on customer implementations of the 24K family is expected to enter the market by the end of calendar year 2004.

The 550MHz 24K family is ideally suited for performance-hungry applications and cost-sensitive markets, and offers 1.44 Dhrystone MIPS/MHz performance in a core area of less than 3.0mm2, along with a wide range of configurable features.

At the same time, it offers SoC designers broad tool and software support that minimises development time, risk and cost.

Development support includes tailored, front-to-back-end design methodologies and a standard, Open Core Protocol (OCP) interconnect structure.

The core family also was designed to be implemented using standard high-performance libraries and on-chip memories from industry-leading companies.
