AndesCore™ A25 is a 32-bit CPU IP core based on AndeStar™ V5 architecture which incorporated RISC-V technology, it is capable of delivering high per-MHz performance and operating at high frequencies, at the same time it is small in gate count. A25 also supports the RISC-V P-extension (draft) DSP/SIMD ISA contributed by Andes, single- and double-precision floating point instructions, and MMU for Linux based applications. A25 comes with options, including branch prediction for efficient branch execution, Instruction and Data caches, Local Memories for low-latency accesses, ECC for L1 memory soft error protection, and Andes Custom Extension™ (ACE) to add proprietary instructions to accelerate performance/power consumption critical spots.
A25's 5-stage pipeline is optimized for high operating frequency and high performance. Features also includes PLIC and vectored interrupts for serving various types of system events, AXI 64-bit or AHB 64/32-bit bus, PowerBrake, QuickNap™ and WFI mode for low power and power management, and JTAG debug interface for development support.
