Tensilica Vectra Model

Description

Tensilica Comms DSP ConnX Vectra

Tensilica's ConnX Vectra LX DSP engine is a quad-MAC DSP powerhouse. While it's relatively small and low power, it performs so well it helped Tensilica get the highest score on the BDTI Benchmark.

The Vectra LX DSP engine can be added to the base Xtensa LX processor core with just a click of a configuration button in the Xtensa LX processor generator. The Vectra LX engine takes advantage of the FLIX architecture and uses 64-bit instruction words containing three issue slots for ALU, multiply-accumulate, and load/sore operations. Design teams interested in modifying the Vectra LX DSP engine for specific configurations should contact Tensilica. The Vectra LX engine is fully supported by the entire Tensilica software environment including advanced auto-vectorization capabilities in the Xtensa C/C++ Compiler (XCC). XCC enables Vectra LX engine users to reap the benefits of vector processing on a SIMD engine without manual assembly-level coding.

This model is a performance optimized instruction set representation of the processor capable of operating in both cycle accurate and turbo modes. The model integrates directly into SoC Designer Plus virtual prototype environment. This enables designers to perform architectural analysis, performance optimization and pre-silicon software debug.
