SAN JOSE, Calif.
/PRNewswire/ -- Plurality Ltd. announced today at the Embedded Systems Conference in
San Jose, California
, the world's first scalable 256 multicore processor for wireless infrastructure, the HyperCore™ family of low power, small footprint, ManyCore processor IP for wireless markets
HyperCore represents a new category of acceleration co-processor based on a revolutionary architecture that simplifies code compilation and a unique hardware based synchronizer-scheduler, which delivers performance that scales linearly with the number of cores. In addition, its efficiency offers power consumption that rivals hard-wired ASICs.
Plurality offers its HyperCore™ acceleration processor IP to system-on-chip (SoC) developers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) as a general purposes accelerator for wireless, networking and high-performance (Cloud) computing applications. The HyperCore processor IP acts as a performance extension to the industry's most popular processor architectures (x86, PowerPC, MIPS and ARM), enabling improved SoC performance without greater power consumption or die area.
"The market's most powerful multi-core shared-memory processing engine for wireless infrastructure"
The combination of optimized high-performance multicores provides designers with the ability to make the best possible tradeoffs between size, power, and programmability to meet the challenging needs of next generation multiband, multimode radios. The solution is reconfigurable and provides a platform for applications ranging from 4G macro base-stations to cost-optimized femtocells, thus offering the benefits of single scalable hardware platform design and extensive software code reuse. With a HyperCore-based design, a base-station OEM can achieve a unified platform strategy both vertically across wireless standards such as LTE, HSPA, or 3G, as well as horizontally across wireless devices ranging from macro base-stations to femtocells. In addition, Plurality's development environment and task-oriented programming model, together with a growing ecosystem of system and software partners, enables rapid product development.
