Toshiba Announces Many-Core SoC with 64 cores for the industrial segment
Toshiba offers a number of years the family of microprocessors Many-Core microprocessors based on dsp (Digital Signal Processor) programmable architecture-based VLIW ( Very Long Instruction Word ) 3-Way, which are focused on the industrial segment (embedded) to use in multimedia processing, decoding and encoding video, and image recognition. Toshiba today announced its soc Many-Core 64, which as its name suggests, has a total of 64 cores.
With this announcement, Toshiba promises a SoC with a number of cores eight times that of its previous chip Many-Core 8 (8-core 3-way VLIW manufactured 65nm at 333MHz). The new Toshiba Many-Core SoC 64 has 87.5 million transistors and is manufactured using the 40nm manufacturing process LP (Low Power), has 64 3-Way VLIW cores (two clusters each with 32 cores) running at 333MHz, 2MB of L2 cache, memory controller DDR3 dual-channel, all in an integrated chip with a die size of 209.3mm Â².
The SoC consumes just 800mW in labor-intensive image processing (500mW in HD video decoding) with advanced power saving techniques that own Toshiba, the chip is capable of performing 1.5 trillion calculations per second, 14 times higher power to its eight-core predecessor.
