Motorola introduced a fully synthesizable core version of its M-Core microprocessor which competes with the UK’s ARM processor cores.
The M210-S offers a slightly larger die size but it can be reconfigured for different manufacturing process technologies and support different design rules. Motorola is targeting applications in system-on-a-chip (SOC) designs.
“The M210-S implementation provides an alternative solution for designers that lets them take advantage of a wide range of industry leading tools that are also compatible with standard ASIC design flows,” said Jim Thomas, Motorola’s vice president and director of the M-CORE Technology Center.
M-Core, like the ARM cores, offers very low power consumption, a tight design and high performance.
