"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 nearly 300 pages of information on Altera, AMD, AppliedMicro, Broadcom (Avago), Cavium, Freescale (NXP), Intel (including Axxia), Marvell, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, 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: some previous editions of this report covered all processors in this category, but this one focuses on chips with four or fewer CPU cores. We cover 32- and 64-bit embedded processors with four or more cores in another report, “A Guide to Multicore Processors.”
“A Guide to Embedded Processors” covers Altera’s SoC FPGA processors (agreed to be acquired by Intel); Freescale’s QorIQ processors (agreed to be acquired by NXP); AppliedMicro’s Helix-1 and Helix-2 ARMv8-compatible processors; AMD’s Embedded R-Series processors and G-Series Processors; Intel’s embedded Atom, and former LSI Axxia processors; Cavium’s Octeon III processors; Broadcom’s XLP-II and StrataGX processors (agreed to be acquired by Avago); Marvell’s Armada and MoChi processors, Texas Instruments’ Sitara processors; and other products.
This handy guide, packed with valuable information, brings you up-to-date on the newest developments in this important market and gives you the analysis you need to help choose a supplier or partner in this field. In addition to networking, the report discusses processors that can be used in high-end consumer applications and printers. It also provides market share and market size data for the embedded segments covered.
“A Guide to Embedded Processors” begins with tutorials on the key technologies implemented by these products, background on the embedded market, and a discussion of the newest technology and market trends. Following these introductory chapters, the report delivers thorough coverage of all announced products in this area. For each major vendor, the report examines the performance, features, and architecture of each product, highlighting strengths and weaknesses in a consistent, easy-to-compare fashion. The report concludes with our own comparisons of these products and conclusions about which will fare best.
