Tensilica Diamond Core-Based Platform
Tensilica's Diamond Standard Series processor family range from the industry's smallest 32-bit, ultra-low power, cache-less RISC controller to the industry's highest performance licensable DSP and most popular audio processor and an exciting video processor family. The Diamond Standard Processor core family covers a very broad range of performance/power options. The Diamond Standard processor core family is based on Tensilica's highly efficient Xtensa configurable and extensible processor architecture, proven in hundreds of SoC (system-on-chip) designs.
The reference design platform based on the diamond cores include:
|Tensilica Diamond Series Processor||Boot code|
|Microprocessor interface||Interrupt Services (ISR) code|
|APB Bridge||Main code with Scheduler|
|Timers||Device driver code|
|Scalable Interrupt Controller||Hardware Level API|
|Internal SRAM with Controller|
|Controllers||106Micro||The industry's smallest, lowest power 32-bit RISC controller|
|108Mini||A low-power RISC controller with built-in DSP capabilities|
|212GP||A flexible mid-range RISC controller with flexible memory choices|
|CPUs||232L||A mid-range CPU with Memory Management Unit (MMU) for Linux OS support|
|570T||A high-end CPU core with 2X the performance of an ARM 11 (based on EEMBC benchmarks)|
|DSPs||330HiFi||A low-power, 24-bit audio processor supported with popular audio and speech codecs|
|545CK||The highest performance, most efficient licensable DSP core|
The unique combination of Nextreme's eASIC and Tensilica's Diamond Standard Processor cores enables you to develop customized, optimal solutions for many applications.
While the Nextreme eASIC fabric is ideal for consolidating logic and implementing parallel structures such as high sample rate filters and high definition video processing and compression, the Tensilica cores can handle many sequential processing tasks such as low rate DSP filtering and control circuits.
