For example, it was important that the system be a microprocessing unit.
Patriot's PSC1000, a 32-bit RISC CPU, uses patented ShBoom microprocessor technology in a highly integrated CPU that includes two processors within one package, a microprocessing unit (MPU) for performing conventional processing tasks, and an input-output processor (IOP) for performing time-synchronous input-output functions.
The camera's signal and the vehicle's speed are sent to the system's advanced microprocessing unit, which combines the information to calculate both the distance between the vehicle and the lane marking and the lateral velocity to the lane marking.

Patriot's microprocessing unit (MPU) uses an uncommon zero-operand dual-stack architecture with primarily 8-bit instructions, giving the processor an advantage in greatly reduced complexity and reduced instruction size.
Sony and Toshiba, which will jointly develop and produce next-generation microprocessing units for broadband communications equipment, have greatly increased investments.
The price reductions reflect lower prices in microprocessing units by microchip makers, including Intel Corp.
