Cadence offers more ways to perform complex signal processing than any other IP company. Cadence offers a full range of processors and DSPs for the best combination of high performance, low power, and small area, exactly tailored to your application.
From the dual or quad MAC Fusion F1 up to the super-high-performance 64-MAC ConnX BBE64EP, these Tensilica DSPs are designed for a broad range of communications applications. Go with the industry's best performing and most compact low-power DSPs for applications from Bluetooth, SmartGrid, 802.11 modems, up to 4G LTE-Advanced and 5G. Cadence offers several pre-designed, pre-verified DSP processors so you can accelerate your design effort and shorten your time to market.
No matter which Tensilica processor solution you choose, remember that it's based on our 32-bit Xtensa® RISC processor and toolset. Unlike a traditional fixed-configuration DSP, all Tensilica DSPs and processors are fully:
- Configurable—Select the pre-built functions you need with full C language, library, and verification support.
- Extensible—Add custom instructions using our Verilog-like TIE language. The results are automatically integrated into the programming tools with full verification support. Custom ports allow your hardware accelerators to be directly integrated into the core, appearing to the programmer as a standard instruction.
- Scalable—Configurable I/O ports and memory allow you to easily scale your performance from a simple single-core design to a sophisticated direct ported multi-core solution.
Whether your need is for a single DSP, a homogeneous multi-core solution, or a highly optimized heterogeneous mix of processors, DSPs, and hardware accelerator blocks, our family of communications DSPs, is the ideal place to get started on your communications platform design.
