Paper Presentation & Seminar Topics: XScale


Abstract : Seminar The XScale, a microprocessor core, is Intel and Marvell ARMv5 application architecture, and consists of several distinct families: IXP, IXC, IOP, PXA and CE (see below). Intel PXA family sold to Marvell Technology Group in June 2006. [A] The XScale architecture is based on the ISA ARMv5TE no floating point instructions. XScale uses a seven-stage integer and an eight-stage memory superpipelined microarchitecture. It is the successor to the Intel StrongARM line of microprocessors and microcontrollers, including Intel acquired Digital Semiconductor division in December as the side effect of a lawsuit between the two companies. Intel used the StrongARM to replace their line of RISC processors patient success, the i860 and i960.
