90nm announcements today

Today Tensilica issued three press releases that show that our Xtensa processors are proven in 90nm technology. See the front page of our new web site,, to read the text of these announcements. You'll find that our Xtensa LX processor reached the highest clock rate of any licensable 32-bit processor on the market in 90 nm technology. We have statistics from STMicroelectronic's runs and TSMC simulations. We also have details on the EDA flow used, with tools from Cadence and Synopsys.

Why is this so important? It means that our base architecture, without any modifications, is superior to other 32-bit architectures. The Xtensa processor is ideal for applications ranging from a simple control processor to applications where performance is critical.
