Embedded CPU cores are getting smaller; ~ 2mm2 for up to 400 mHz

  • Less than 5% of CPU size

Higher Performance by:

  • Faster clock, deeper pipelines, branch prediction, ...

Trend is towards higher integration of processors with: Devices that were on the board now on chip: “system on a chip” Adding more compute power by add-on DSPs, ... Much larger L1 / L2 caches on silicon J. Fiddler - WRS
