Lucid Licenses Diamond 212GP Controller Core

Lucid Information Technology, Ltd., of Kfar Netter, Israel, has licensed Tensilica's Diamond Standard 212GP general-purpose processor core for a new scalable multi-GPU chip design project. The Diamond 212GP is a flexible mid-range RISC controller that includes instruction and data caches, a 16-bit multiply-accumulator, DSP functions and zero-overhead loop support. The Diamond 212GP also includes a single-cycle latency local interface bus. This processor core provides 40 percent better performance and 30 percent lower power than an ARM946E-S processor.

"We particularly liked the in-bound DMA capability of the Diamond Standard series,” stated Moshe Steiner, CEO, Lucid. “With this feature we are able to realize significantly higher computational and data throughput when compared to alternative architectures."
