Royal Philips Electronics has announced a new TriMedia Central Processing Unit (CPU) core to be used in the next generation of Philips' Nexperia media processors.
Philips' new super-pipelined TriMedia CPU is aimed at enhancing the performance of Audio/Video applications. It achieves over 500mHz speed with a fully synthesizable design, allowing for efficient system-on-chip (SoC) integration. Armed with this high-performance CPU core, Philips is targeting its next-generation of media processors for connected home entertainment applications, including connected high-definition displays, home media servers, personal video recorders (PVRs), and video over wireless 802.11 network adaptors. Philips' next-generation of Nexperia media processors based on the super-pipelined TriMedia CPU will be unveiled the first half of 2004.
