PMC-Sierra Inc. and MIPS Technologies Inc. announced that PMC-Sierra has deepened its investment in the industry-standard MIPS architecture to include the MIPS32 24K core family and the 4KEm core, said to be the industry's highest performing line of 32bit synthesizeable processor cores available for cost-sensitive embedded applications.

PMC-Sierra, a provider of 64bit MIPS-based microprocessor technology, will deliver 32bit MIPS-based products targeting high-growth embedded markets such as lower-end printers, communications, storage and digital video.

"By adding 32bit, synthesizeable cores to our extensive MIPS-based microprocessor portfolio, we will be able to provide our customers with a comprehensive line of high-performance, low power products for very low-end, cost-sensitive applications up to very high-end networking and storage equipment," said John Monson, Marketing VP for the Microprocessor Products Division at PMC-Sierra.

The 24K core family, which includes the 24Kc, 24Kc Pro, 24Kf and 24Kf Pro versions, offers performance up to 625MHz in a 0.13?m process, the highest frequency available in 32-bit synthesizeable cores for embedded markets, while minimizing design time and reducing product costs.
