Tensilica Xtensa9 Model


Tensilica Xtensa LX4 DPU

Tensilica's Xtensa LX4 DPU (dataplane processing unit) was designed from the start to be a basic building block in SOC designs. It is ideal for handling complex compute-intensive DSP applications where an RTL implementation may be the only other option. Xtensa LX4 DPUs are configurable and extensible to meet application requirements exactly.

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.
