The xCORE 64-bit accumulator and memory bus

Posted: 03 November 2015

In a previous blog I discussed the new DSP capabilities of the xCORE-200 architecture at a very high level. I'd now like to look at some of those DSP capabilities in more detail.

XMOS xCORE-200 devices are built around a 32-bit fixed point architecture, which includes a 64-bit accumulator for enhanced dynamic range. This architecture was chosen because it gives flexibility to implement many different forms of fixed-point and integer arithmetic efficiently.
