Codasip, a supplier of customisable RISC-V processor IP, has unveiled three new 64-bit RISC-V application processor cores: the A70XP, the A70X‑MP and the A70XP‑MP that provide extensions for RISC-V P extensions and enable the creation of symmetric multi-processor (SMP) systems.
The RISC-V P extension consists of 331 instructions which can be divided into groups. The A70XP includes a SIMD unit which executes P extension instructions with single-cycle latency. Multi-cycle instructions are pipelined to allow one to be executed every clock cycle. Applications include: audio encoding/decoding, sensor fusion, computer vision, and edge AI/ML applications.
