The Configurable Processor Comes of Age

Tensilica, the leading supplier of configurable microprocessor cores will present its Xtensa processor development environment.

The Xtensa processor is ideally suited for SoC design.

  1. Greater flexibility. For example fully synthesisable RTL source as a standard feature and a full GNU based software environment
  2. Easier and faster cost/performance analysis so that you can architect the best hardware/software combination for your unique application
  3. A complete embedded processor development environment so that hardware and software are developed in synch and in minimum time.
  4. Highest code density so that memory requirements are minimised
  5. Integration of functions within the processor which are traditionally implemented with additional IP blocks.

This results in lower overall silicon cost, fewer integration problems and easier verification
