AMCC PowerPC 440EPx

 

 

      Description         

            

            PPC440EPx CPU

    PowerPC 440EPx embedded processor with support for floating-point operations, low power dissipation and a small footprint is ideally suited to a wide range of high-performance applications, including imaging, industrial control and networking.

    To enhance overall throughput, the PowerPC 440 superscalar core incorporates a 7-stage pipeline and executes up to two instructions per cycle. Its large 32-Kbyte data cache and 32-Kbyte instruction cache are 64-way set-associative.

    Versatile configurations enhance performance tuning while optional parity protection preserves data integrity. For additional system performance, the PowerPC 440 core includes dynamic branch prediction and 24 multiply accumulate instructions (MAC) that can be used for signal processing or other numerical tasks, as well as non-blocking caches that can be managed in either write-through or write-back mode.
