Zarlink Semiconductor will be utilizing MIPS Technologies Inc.'s 32-bit, synthesizable MIPS32 4KEc core in its next-generation of advanced digital TV (DTV) products.

The 4KEc core has a performance of 1.53 Dhrystone MIPS/MHz, and features such as MIPS16e code compression, large writeback cache memories that can be configured for higher performance, and power-saving techniques, says MIPS Technologies.

"The 4KEc core provides the right combination of performance and flexibility as we design compelling new products for the consumer marketplace," said Les Watson, product line engineering director, Consumer Communications, Zarlink Semiconductor.
