The MAJC 500 "convergence processor" which is designed to handle the real-time flow of multimedia data, will integrate two 128-bit very long instruction word processors onto a single piece of silicon.
Under the partnership, which builds on two years of cooperation between STMicroelectronics and HP Labs, the companies will develop a VLIW (Very Long Instruction Word) -based technology platform to allow the rapid development of high-performance processor cores that are scaled and customised to individual system-on-chip applications.
Transmeta Corp has been granted a new patent - number 5,958,061 - which confirms the now generally-held belief that it is working on a very long instruction word processor that runs x86 and Windows-based applications.
Integrating two VLIW (very long instruction word) microprocessors on a single piece of silicon, the new MAJC 5200 chip has been designed to handle real-time streams of visual and audio information.
However, the most likely bet seems to be a very long instruction word (VLIW) processor that runs x86 and Windows-based applications up to three times as fast as current Intel Corp CPUs.
The chip uses a very long instruction word (VLIW) set and Sun is targeting the chip at the advanced set-top box market - devices that require powerful multimedia capabilities.
The very long instruction word chip is aimed at set-top boxes, video processing and security applications.
This is a significant departure from common practice, which has seen most DSP builders pursue VLIW (very long instruction word) designs, which have made it almost impossible to program their devices using conventional languages and compilers.
