"A Guide to Embedded Processors" provides an in-depth look at 32- and 64-bit high-speed embedded processors with one to four CPU cores. This completely revised report from The Linley Group contains 230+ pages of information on Altera, AMD, AppliedMicro, Broadcom, Cavium, Freescale, Intel, LSI, Marvell, Macom/Mindspeed, STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments, Via Technologies, and Xilinx.
The report focuses on general-purpose RISC and x86 processors that have one to four CPU cores running at 600MHz or more, excluding specialized architectures (e.g. DSPs, NPUs). Note: previous editions of this report covered all processors in this category, but this one focuses on chips with four or fewer CPU cores. Another report, "A Guide to Multicore Processors," covers 32- and 64-bit embedded processors with four or more cores.
"A Guide to Embedded Processors" covers Altera’s SoC FPGAs; Freescale’s QorIQ processors; AppliedMicro’s X-Gene; Intel’s embedded Atom, and Ivy Bridge and Haswell processors; Cavium’s Octeon II and Octeon III families; Broadcom’s XLP-I and XLP-II processors plus StrataGX processors; LSI’s Axxia processors; AMD's R-Series and G-Series SoCs; Texas Instruments’ Sitara and DaVinci SoCs; and other RISC and x86 processors.
