2013-10-29 MIPS(r) P5600 Superscalar Multiprocessor Core Family

The MIPS P5600 processor IP core is the first member of the Warrior generation of MIPS CPU cores from Imagination Technologies. It delivers industry leading 32-bit performance with class-leading low power characteristics, and in a silicon footprint up to 30% smaller than comparable alternatives in the industry. The P5600 CPU core was designed for the performance and features required for tomorrow's mainstream connected consumer electronics including smartphones, tablets, connected TVs and set-top boxes. However, the rich and broad feature set extends applicability into a variety of networking applications, from residential gateways to network appliances and microservers.
