Users can expect 132 MBps PCI bus performance with zero wait states while easily meeting the stringent power requirements of portable PCI applications such as mini PCI modules or CardBus cards.
The more processors we want to put on, the more wait states we incur, and the more performance we steal from each processor.
Runs 16-bit wide accesses without wait states for peripherals and memories
To release the processor's full 150 DMIPS performance at this frequency the accelerator implements an instruction pre-fetch queue and branch cache, enabling program execution from Flash at up to 120MHz with zero wait states.
Supports random wait states on address, data, and response channels and programmable response behavior using transaction-level request matching
The STR71xF series features: - ARM7TDMI core with 32-bit and Thumb 16-bit instruction sets, 3-stage pipeline, 32-bit ALU, and extensive debug facilities; - 16k to 64kbytes SRAM; - 128kbytes to 256kbytes of Flash memory with fast random access time: - Up to 48MHz and 0 wait states with acceleration; - Up to 30MHz and 0 wait states without acceleration, and with no penalty on context switch and branching.
In addition, nvSRAM devices emulate and replace fast SRAM in high-speed processor systems to reduce wait states and optimize performance, while also delivering the added benefit of backup protection for critical state information.
And its high speed allows the system processor to run with zero wait states in many applications," Bryant added.
With the AT27C2048 speed, systems can run with zero wait states.
GSI Technology (Nasdaq:GSIT) today announced the availability of its 144Mb NBT[TM] (No Bus Turnaround) SRAM that supports back-to-back Read/Write operation with no wait states.
Prior to the 45 nanosecond AT27C010, modem manufacturers had to use wait states or degrade the modem performance because the EPROM was too slow.
