Grenoble, France - August 24, 2012 -- The speed champion in the 16-bit Flip80251 family is Tornado. Its code is not only upward compatible with the i80251 legacy, but it also offers the extension of the WHIRL interface for coprocessors of encryption or of analog signal processing:
- The Flip80251 Tornado is accelerated 67 times from the i80C51 and by 5.3 times from the i80C251, running the Dhrystone V2.1 / 10,000 loops.
- The power consumption is thus decreased to less than 150 µA/DMIPS in typical conditions on TSMC 0.18 μm G process including clock tree consumption using a Dolphin library.
Flip80251 Tornado is provided with its wide set of peripherals: watchdog timer, enhanced UART, I2C & SPI master or slave interfaces, cache controller etc. Tornado embeds its Built-In Real-time Debug BIRD Owl with 2 (DSPI) or 4 wire (JTAG) interfaces offering all features for fast program development and debug.
For applications requiring Data and Signal Processing, Tornado paves the way to a family of WHIRL co-processors, with dedicated ALU and DMA enabling a combined processing power superior to any 32-bit single core architecture. These co-processors are optimized to fit to volume applications like Audio or Smart Cards.
