Toshiba lays down 64-core SoC plans for Embedded Application

Toshiba develop a 64-core SoC for Embedded Application

Toshiba have just made quite the leap, announcing they have developed a low-power, 64-core System-on-a-Chip (SoC) for embedded application in some areas which could be destined to automotive products and digital consumer products.

The insane chip sports 64 cores, claiming to feature eight times as many as its multi-core predecessor unveiled in 2008 and operates at an insane 14 times faster. The 64-core chip sits on a die area of 209.3mm2, two 32-core clusters are then integrated with dynamically reconfigurable processors, hardware accelerators, dual-channel DDR3 memory controller and other peripherals.

 

In one cluster, we'll find processor cores that share 2MB of L2 cache connected through a three-based network-on-chip (NoC). The high scalability and low power consumption is accomplished by the parallelized firmware for multimedia applications.
