A New High-Performance Scalable Microprocessor Cluster Architecture for Embedded Applications

There is a transformation occurring in high-end embedded applications as the Internet infrastructure spreads from the cloud to the edge.  Performance requirements are increasing but there are limits on power and area in embedded applications that must be accounted for.  This is driving the increasing use of configurable multicore solutions and specialized hardware accelerators to deliver the required performance.  This presentation will look at a new multiprocessor cluster architecture that is highly scalable to achieve very high performance for storage, automotive, networking and other high-end embedded applications.
