The approach we have taken with the AVR32 is to increase the amount of processing the processor can do internally during each clock cycle.
The simulation performance drops to 1-10 Hz precisely at the point in the verification process that requires millions of clock cycles to adequately test and verify software functionality.
To help ensure QoS for each hardware thread we've added real-time trace capture that includes color coded TC IDs for each trace cycle to easily distinguish which TC executed on each clock cycle.
E[acute accent]Future Geomagic software will take advantage of the Windows 64-bit architecture that provides greater memory support and the ability to process more data per clock cycle.
Whereas conventional processors are limited to a maximum data throughput of one 32-bit or 64-bit data read or write every clock cycle, Xtensa processors with Queues can sustain data rates of one transfer every clock cycle for every Queue port, with a user-defined bandwidth of up to 1024 bits per cycle.
These timing exceptions guide timing and synthesis tools, through identifying timing paths which do not need to complete in a single clock cycle.
Instead, IR's OCC uses a proprietary integrator with a reset circuit: The output of the error amplifier is integrated over each clock cycle to generate a variable-slope ramp.
Together with pseudo synchronous blocks within the device that improves clock distribution by dynamically turning off inactive modules on a per clock cycle basis, these improvements lead to dramatic power reductions.
The Samsung 256Mb XDR has an Octal Data Rate process that transfers data at eight bits per clock cycle, while cranking up the transfer speed to an industry-leading eight gigabytes per second.
