Next Generation Xtensa Configurable Processors

On December 4, Tensilcia introduced its next-generation Xtensa configurable processors, the Xtensa LX2 and Xtensa 7 cores. I was busy traveling around the world doing the press introductions, so I got behind on my blogging. Here's some basic information. The web site is updated to reflect the new products.

Both processors feature several architectural enhancements, and are the first configurable licensable core families available with built-in, on-the-fly Error Correcting Code (ECC), which is extremely important in storage, networking, automotive and transaction processing applications where data integrity and error resiliency are of paramount concern. Tensilica’s new generation of processors reinforce Tensilica’s processor technology leadership by remaining the lowest power, highest performance licensable cores on the market. Both processors are available and shipping now.

See for highlights of what's new in these two processors.
