CUPERTINO, Calif. -- RMI Corporation, a leading supplier of multi-core, multi-threaded processors for communications and consumer applications, today announced that it has released its newest XLS Processor, a 1 GHz Dual-Core Multi-threaded device accelerating packet-oriented and control plane applications, as well as a comprehensive solution including development board and software development kit for the SMB market. The XLS208 Processor and solution is particularly well suited for SMB applications by including eight parallel processing elements and advanced application acceleration techniques for systems solutions sensitive to cost and power. Designers now have access to leading-edge performance previously available only in very high-end processors.

Built on TSMC's 90nm LP Process, the XLS208 Processor extends the low cost multi-core multi-threaded XLS Processor Family. The XLS family of processors is pin-compatible and provides the ability to easily combine control plane, data plane and security operations into a single Super System-On-a-Chip (SuperSOC) solution. The XLS208 integrates eight vCPUs (fine-grain H/W processing threads using single-clock, zero overhead, context switching) from two MIPS64® compatible CPU cores with 32KB instruction and 32KB data level-1 caches. Also included are three high speed on-chip interconnects, a 512KB level-2 banked cache, 1Gbps Autonomous Security Acceleration Engine technology, an on-chip memory controller supporting 32/36/72b DDR2 memory allowing low-cost commodity DIMM memories, Quad Gigabit Ethernet MACs with network accelerators, and Quad PCI-Express controllers.

"The release of the XLS208 Processor is a significant step for RMI in extending our leadership in the multi-threaded arena for communications and security applications," said Lance L. Smith, vice president, Communication Processor Solutions, RMI. "We continue to push our innovative MIPS-Compatible architecture to deliver the utmost in performance and features, and the XLS208 is a great example of that effort."
