Plurality Ltd. announced today at the Embedded Systems Conference in San Jose, California, the world’s first scalable 256 multicore processor for wireless infrastructure, the HyperCore™ family of low power, small footprint, ManyCore processor IP for wireless markets. HyperCore represents a new category of acceleration co-processor based on a revolutionary architecture that simplifies code compilation and a unique hardware based synchronizer-scheduler, which delivers performance that scales linearly with the number of cores. In addition, its efficiency offers power consumption that rivals hard-wired ASICs.
Plurality offers its HyperCore™ acceleration processor IP to system-on-chip (SoC) developers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) as a general purposes accelerator for wireless, networking and high-performance (Cloud) computing applications. The HyperCore processor IP acts as a performance extension to the industry’s most popular processor architectures (x86, PowerPC, MIPS and ARM), enabling improved SoC performance without greater power consumption or die area.
