Background
Microcomputers such as “system-on-a-chip” can include multiple components (e.g., drivers, processors, etc.) for performing different input/output or processing functions. Prevalent system-on-a-chip architectures have complex hardware and put significant load on a head processor, resulting in degraded system performance. Further, it is difficult to debug such systems. Techniques are required to implement enhanced microcomputer architecture.

Key Characteristics & Benefits
This patent portfolio discloses enhanced microcomputer architectures featuring cascaded array of processors for microcomputers or Digital Signal Processors (DSP).

  • In this architecture, an on-chip head processor is connected to other on-chip sub processors through a cascaded instruction pipeline and associated control circuitry.
  • Sub processors either function independently or as an extension to on-chip head processors.
  • The architecture is scalable, allows real-time monitoring.
  • Each sub-processor can be debugged individually and simultaneously in real-time. This adds further operational efficiency.

Market Potential
This is an important patent portfolio for companies involved in manufacturing or designing processors for computing and communication devices.
