MPR Names Xtensa LX the “Best IP-Core Processor” of 2004

The Xtensa LX processor has won the 2004 Microprocessor Report (MPR) Analysts’ Choice Award for Best Intellectual-Property (IP) Core. MPR selected the Xtensa LX core for its market-leading performance (verified by independent benchmark results), low power consumption, unmatched architectural flexibility, powerful Vectra LX DSP engine and unique XPRES (Xtensa PRocessor Extension Synthesis) design tools.

“We saw significant activity in the IP-core market this year with many companies announcing new products, but Tensilica’s introduction of the Xtensa LX and its revolutionary tool, the XPRES design compiler, made it the clear winner,” said Tom R. Halfhill, Senior Analyst, Microprocessor Report. “Even without XPRES, Xtensa LX would be the leading contender for this award, but the combination is unbeatable.”
