The compact core provides a cost effective solution for space-constrained applications and includes both a 32-bit instruction set for fast execution as well as 16-bit instructions for high code density. TMS470 MCUs also allow unlimited switching between these instruction sets and provide run-time decompression to give designers the ultimate level of flexibility when designing for high-speed operation or high density code.
"The enhanced instruction set is designed to closely couple the architecture and compiler, enabling higher code density and even better performance.
