We see from your search that you're looking for information on the term "ALU", and we have a large number of manufacturers' news releases and technical articles here on Electronicstalk which will be of interest. Let me be your guide.
Start with the news release IP core offers speed boosts from Imagination Technologies, which we summarised at the time by saying "The multi-threaded architecture allows the overlapped execution of multiple threads, enabling multiple applications to run concurrently on the same processor". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release On-the-fly error correcting code from Tensilica: "Tensilica has introduced its seventh-generation of Xtensa configurable processors, the Xtensa LX2 and Xtensa 7 cores".
In September 2006, we covered the news from Zilog concerning its ZNEO Z16F family - take a look at 16bit microcontroller is a first for Zilog which says: "Zilog's move into the 16bit MCU space is an extension of the company's application-specific product strategy and extends its portfolio outside of pure 8bit products".
Take a look also at the news release from Texas Instruments (April 2006-), Enterprise SIP phone is driven by DSP, as well as Smart card microcontrollers add more memory from Renesas Technology Europe, and Novel 32bit core claims benchmark supremacy from Atmel Corporation.
