LONDON — VinChip Systems Inc. (San Jose, Calif.) has announced the availability of the VinRZ5110 32-bit RISC processor core, which it claims is the first 32-but processor to be developed in India. It has a DSP-centric instruction set and low gate count for low power consumption, the company said.

VinChip, which has a design center in Chennai, India, said the VinRZ5110 is suitable for use in applications including mass storage, automotive control, wireless devices and audio/video encoders and decoders. It is also suitable for FPGA-based embedded systems.

The core has been developed with on-chip debug logic based on OpenOCD, which also supports in-system programming via JTAG. An optional module, the VinSMDP, provides static and dynamic capture of debug data and in-system programming over USB 2.0 achieving speeds of 480-Mbits per second. The VinSMDP can also multi-task as a USB port for user tasks on the AHB bus.

The VinRZ5110 core has...
