Tensilica Licenses Xtensa LX2 Configurable Processor to Marvell

Marvell has taken a company-wide license to Tensilica’s Xtensa® LX2 configurable processor. This agreement was driven in part by Marvell’s successful use of Tensilica’s earlier Xtensa processors in high-volume printer applications, Yukon® gigabit Ethernet products, and LinkStreet® router products. Marvell plans to use the Xtensa LX2 configurable processor in various products throughout the company.

“By using Tensilica’s Xtensa processors in three very high-volume product lines, Marvell is able to take advantage of the extreme flexibility that these configurable processors provide for our design teams,” stated Alan Armstrong, vice president of marketing for Marvell’s Storage Business Group. “Our design teams will be able to deploy Tensilica processors in a broad range of roles, including many non-traditional design sockets within datapath and dataplane functions.”
