Open-Silicon, MIPS Technologies, Virage Logic Team on Test Chips

Open-Silicon, MIPS Technologies, and Virage Logic teamed to develop test chips showcasing the companies’ technologies for building high-performance processor-based systems. The companies achieved successful 65 nanometer (nm) silicon testing of a processor test chip at 1.1GHz, making it one of the fastest processors built in a 65nm ASIC. In addition, the companies are now working on a follow-on 40nm device targeting frequencies in excess of 2.5GHz and providing over 5000 DMIPS of performance. Both efforts utilize Open-Silicon’s CoreMAX technology as well as the superscalar MIPS32 74K processor core, a fully synthesizable processor core widely used in high-end digital consumer devices, set top boxes, and networking solutions.
