Description

From University Video Communications' catalog:

"Although most system designs need to balance the conflicting requirements of performance, power, and cost, embedded systems must pay special attention to these. In applications ranging from personal data assistants to disk controllers and laser printers, MIPS per watt performance is the critical factor. The 80960Jx CPU has been designed specifically to meet the MIPS per watt per dollar requirements of new embedded designs. This presentation focuses specifically on how the 80960Jx CPU addresses the requirements of performance, power, and cost. In addition, Brunner briefly summarizes the features of the i960(R) architecture that make it a popular 32-bit RISC processor for embedded designs."
