The Xentium® is a high performance VLIW DSP core. It is a highly scalable IP building block, suited for large multi-core systems-on-chip (SoC). The Xentium can also be used as DSP accelerator in combination with a General Purpose Processor.
The Xentium combines high computational power with low energy consumption and a small silicon footprint. Advanced loop control mechanisms reduce code size and increase energy efficiency by switching off idle components during loop execution. Use of tightly coupled data memory further contributes to low energy consumption and high processing efficiency.
