Implements a 32-bit processor for demanding systems running applications on general-purpose operating systems such as Linux and Android. The high-performance BA25™ processor runs at high clock frequencies yet has a smaller silicon footprint than most competing application processors (e.g., over 800MHz and from 150Kgates in TSMC65nmLP, 12-track library). This royalty-free 32-bit processor core is binary-compatible with other members of the silicon-proven BA2x processor family. Its BA2 instruction set is relatively simple and extremely compact, offering system area and energy savings benefits. Programing is facilitated with the included C/C++ tool chain, Eclipse IDE, architectural simulator, and ported C libraries, RTOSs, and OSs.
