ASIC provider K-Micro and MIPS Technologies Inc. disclosed the inclusion of the MIPS32 24Kf processor core in K-Micro's latest Topaz advanced computing subsystem for SoCs. The subsystem will enable designers to bring applications requiring very high-performance computing power, including PON ONU/OLT, set-top boxes, printers, routers, and storage devices to market more easily.

The Topaz computing subsystem includes the MIPS32 24Kf processor core, the Sonics SiliconBackplane and Sonics3220 SMART Interconnects, the SafeNet SafeXcel security engine, an off-chip open core protocol (OCP) interface, and numerous other blocks including on-chip SRAM, a flash-memory controller, a DMA interface, an interrupt controller, and a timer.

K-Micro is the first MIPS Technologies' licensee with MIPS32 24K silicon. "K-Micro's use of the 24Kf processor core in its Topaz platform provides a suitable design environment for advanced applications needing very high performance," said Jack Browne, VP of worldwide sales at MIPS.
