StarCore SC2400 Processor Core Wins "Best DSP Licensable Core" Analysts' Choice Award from Microprocessor Reports

AUSTIN, Texas—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Jan. 24, 2005— StarCore, a leading provider of licensable processor solutions for the communication industry announced that the StarCore SC2400 processor core has won this year's Microprocessor Report Analysts' Choice Award for the "Best DSP Licensable Core." The Analysts' Choice awards recognize excellence in semiconductor technology, innovation, design and implementation. The coveted award is presented annually.

"We chose the StarCore SC2400 as the Best DSP Licensable Core of 2004," said Max Baron, Senior Editor, Microprocessor Report and Principal Analyst at Microprocessor Report. "The StarCore SC2400 core takes the lead with its 4-SIMD MAC architecture capable of executing four 16-bit multiplies per cycle, memory-mapped support for customer accelerators, memory protection and a short pipeline."

"We are delighted that analysts at Microprocessor Report have chosen the SC2400 processor core in their Analysts' Choice awards," said Alex Bedarida, StarCore's General Manager. "The SC2400 family of processors has quickly gained recognition as the licensable processor of choice for high-quality mobile multimedia and consumer applications."

The SC2000 processor product family features new instructions that accelerate video coding (such as H.264 and MPEG-4) and reduce code size. The new privileged mode and a memory protection unit enable easier porting of real-time operating systems and the convergence of several embedded applications on a single StarCore processor core. System developers will be able to take advantage of this feature to reduce the number of cores in a device, thus reducing cost, power consumption and design complexity. And, since StarCore technology offers backward binary code compatibility across all product families, programmers and engineering managers can move swiftly to market without the significant recoding effort that is required with other processors. The SC2200 and SC2400 cores are licensed in fully synthesizable form, making them ideal for a broad spectrum of applications, including wireless and multimedia designs and communication devices.
