MIPS 24KEc / MIPS 24KEf
A distinguishing characteristic of the 24KE family is the inclusion of the MIPS DSP
- Application Specific Extension (ASE).
The MIPS DSP ASE provides support for a number of powerful data processing operations.
It includes instructions for executing fractional arithmetic (Q15/Q31) and for saturating arithmetic.
Additionally, for smaller data sizes, SIMD operations are supported, allowing 2x16b
- or 4x8b operations to occur simultaneously.
Another feature of the ASE is the inclusion of additional HI/LO accumulator registers
- to improve the parallelization of independent accumulation routines.
- MIPS 24KEc is a 32-bit RISC core for high performance applications.
- MIPS 24KEc Pro core offers the CorExtend capability.
- (CP0 Status Reg, Bit 17 set for CorExtend block)
- MIPS 24KEf core adds an IEEE-754 compliant floating point unit.
- (CP0 Status Reg, Bit 29 set for Floating Point Unit)
- MIPS 24KEf Pro core has both the floating point
- unit and the CorExtend capability.
