Speedy MPU integrates memory and I/O
PMC-Sierra has expanded its RM9000 family of highly integrated MIPS-based processors with the 1GHz single-core RM9000x1.
PMC-Sierra has expanded its RM9000 family of highly integrated MIPS-based processors with the 1GHz single-core RM9000x1 The RM9000x1 integrates memory and high-speed I/O interfaces on-chip to optimise performance, and uses a 0.13 micron low voltage process to reduce total device power consumption to an industry low of less than 5W
The RM9000x1 is ideal for use in core and edge routers, DSLAMs, multiservice switches, high-end laser printers, storage area network applications and wireless basestations.
"The highly-integrated 1GHz RM9000x1 provides customers with a low power, low cost solution for high-performance applications not requiring a dual-CPU processor", said Tom Riordan, Vice President and General Manager of the MIPS Processor Division of PMC-Sierra.
