Cores answer calls for embedded DSP
The MIPS32 24KE family of cores is the first to integrate the MIPS DSP application-specific extension announced last year.
MIPS Technologies has released the MIPS32 24KE family of cores, the first to integrate the MIPS DSP application-specific extension (ASE) announced last year The 24KE core family leverages the high performance 24K microarchitecture and efficiently adds DSP functionality while significantly reducing overall SoC die area, cost, and power consumption
Traditionally, many SoCs have used a RISC CPU core for the operating system and a separate DSP core for signal processing functions.
Now, with the performance range of 400-625MHz (based on a 0.13um process) and the DSP functionality
