HPMicro Semiconductor Announces the Release of the HPM6000 series of Microcontrollers with AndesCore™ dual D45 cores
Shanghai, Nov. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HPMicro Semiconductor, a leading manufacturer of high-performance embedded solutions, and Andes Technology, a leading supplier of 32/64-bit RISC-V embedded processors (TWSE: 6533; SIN: US03420C2089; ISIN: US03420C1099), today jointly released the HPM6000 series, the real-time RISC-V microcontrollers with the world’s strongest performance. The flagship product, HPM6750, adopts dual RISC-V AndesCore™ D45 cores, is equipped with innovative bus architecture, efficient level-1 cache and local memory, and has set a new performance record of over 9000 CoreMark and 4000 DMIPS, with a main frequency of up to 800MHz. It can provide powerful computing power for edge computing and other applications.
The whole series of HPM6000 MCU, including multi-core HPM6750, single-core HPM6450, and entry-level HPM6120, are all equipped with double-precision floating-point operations and powerful DSP extension instructions, built-in 2MB SRAM, rich multimedia functions, motor control modules, communication interface and security encryption. The HPM6000 series; providing high efficiency, low power consumption, and high security; can be used widely in popular applications such as industry 4.0, smart home appliances, the terminal of financial payment systems, edge computing, and IoT.
AndesCore™ D45 is one member of the 45 series of Andes Technology RISC-V family. It adopts in-order 8-stage dual-issue superscalar architecture, with optimized load and store pipeline design and advanced branch prediction and supports IEEE 754 single/double-precision floating-point unit (FPU) and RISC-V P-extension (DSP/SIMD) instruction. The 45 series cores also have local memory subsystem, as well as configurable, high-speed data and instruction caches. For SoCs that support mass storage, like HPM6000 series, can enhance its software performance. D45 core is very suitable for embedded applications that have special response time and real-time accuracy requirements.
"HPMicro's HPM6000 series have high-speed computing power and real-time control functions. They will provide a more flexible and efficient choice for the high-end MCU market." Dr. Charlie Su, President and CTO of Andes Technology said, "With D45 and AndeSight™ IDE tools, customers can design software with higher performance and streamlined program codes. HPMicro leads the industry by launching high-performance RISC-V embedded MU security solutions. It shows the ultra-high efficiency and excellent R&D capabilities from the HPMicro team."
“AndesCore™ D45 is the only RISC-V processor IP that can meet the requirements of HPMicro ultra-speed real-time computing. In some cases,the performance is even higher than the competitors by 50%! And Andes team in-time support service during product implementation stage helps us complete the tape out of the HPM6000 series successfully and quickly. It’s perfect and efficient cooperation by our two teams.” Jintao Zeng, CEO of HPMicro Semiconductor, said: "HPMicro provides developers with a complete ecosystem, including a free integrated development environment HPM Studio based on the VS CODE framework, and SoC resource allocation tools for PC-end graphics interfaces. HPMicro will also launched a BSD-licensed SDK, which includes low-level drivers, middleware and RTOS. All official software products will be open-sourced and equipped with cost-effective evaluation reports. HPMicro will cooperate with RISC-V community partners and contribute to building a better RISC-V software ecosystem."
