CPU Technology offers multicore SoC (system-on-chip) devices and development tools that target computers and peripherals, communication/wired, general-purpose, imaging and video, industrial, medical, military/aerospace, mo-bile/wireless, and test-and-measurement applications. The Acalis family of field-programmable multicore chips provides security functions that protect IP (intellectual property) without impacting performance. Their balanced, scalable architecture ensures that, as the company adds a chip, it also adds memory, I/O, synchronization, communications, security, and performance.
The CPU872 contains dual PowerPC 440 cores with floating-point units, dual streaming processors, dual MPI (Message Passing Interface) processors, dual embedded DRAMs, dual external DRAM interfaces, five 10-Gbps Express interfaces, and 10/100/1000-Gbps Ethernet in a 31x31-mm package. The CPU878 contains eight complete computational nodes on a chip for higher computational density with the same functions and protections as the CPU872. Both are compatible with CPU Technology's SystemLab and other PowerPC-based development and operating environments. The company builds the CPU8xx chips at the IBM Trusted Foundry.
