XMOS is a young, privately held, fabless semiconductor company. We set out to make it easier for you to design your complex embedded systems and developed xCORETM which is different from other microcontrollers. xCORE is a multicore microcontroller that delivers scalable, parallel multitasking compute. It can be configured to support a wide range of interfaces and peripherals, and responds much faster than conventional microcontrollers to deliver precise real-time performance. Our xCORE processor is suitable for a wide range of demanding embedded applications and is being used today by a rapidly expanding set of customers in consumer, audio, industrial and automotive applications.
- The xCORETM family of real-time, flexible, 32bit multicore processors and provide devices with 8, 16 and 32 cores.
- xSOFTipTM - a comprehensive range of proven soft peripheral IP that you can use to configure your xCORETM chip to support a wide range of interfaces and to deliver a broad set of capabilities.
- The xTIMEcomposerTM studio – provides a familiar software development environment that delivers real-time performance from your code and allows full timing validation for your design.
- We also provide xKITTM boards, a range of flexible development boards, that allow you to easily test your embedded system concept.
XMOS is not like other chip companies. We aim to make it easy for you to understand our products, find the information that you need, and to get help and training from online resources and in-tool tutorials. We provide tools and IP blocks free of charge directly from our website. We aim to support you to build your embedded system quickly and easily and ensure that it meets your requirements.
Our tools are easy to use and help you add the capabilities that are important for your design. Importantly, they also let you set timing constraints and unlike any other microcontroller,they let you simulate your design to test functionality and analyze precise timings. With extremely low latency, timing predictable software execution, and response times that are up to 100 times faster, you can achieve much more precise real-time performance than any other solution – and our price/performance is incredible.
Our company is staffed by some of the brightest silicon engineers and computer scientists and is led by management that have experience of building and running large semiconductor businesses. We are backed by some of the largest names in high tech venture capital: Amadeus Capital, DFJ Esprit and Foundation Capital; and we are growing rapidly.
At XMOS our goal is to help you, so that designing your next complex embedded system – becomes easy.
What our customers say ...
"Our engineers have been impressed with how easily XMOS devices can be customized for their specific applications. Working with XMOS to validate their Ethernet AVB reference design has proven how quickly and easily they - and we - can add new reference blocks." Robert Boatright, director of Research, Corporate Technology Group, at Harman International.
"The XMOS USB Audio solution gave our engineers the perfect starting point. Its flexibility allows us to easily customize the processor to our exact requirements. The single XMOS device replaces a number of components from our previous designs, dramatically upgrading our standard sound specifications, and reducing our material cost." Jerome Henry, Chief Brand Officer for Vestax.
"The system is complex with lots going on. Using XMOS allowed us to easily manage the simultaneous control tasks and allowed us to put multiple functions on one chip, reducing our cost." said Henry Liu, PhD at Full Spectrum Laser.
