Use Customizable Processors as Basic SOC Building Blocks

Now there’s a real alternative to RTL design. You can use customizable Xtensa processors to finish your design much faster and add flexibility to adapt to changing standards or product requirements. Tensilica’s Xtensa processors provide both the I/O throughput and the computational performance previously only available with RTL design. The generated processor fully rivals the performance and efficiency of hand-coded RTL blocks with many concurrent operations, efficient data types and optimized multiple wide deep pipelines.
