XMOS ships first xCore200

XMOS has announced the launch of the XCORE-200, a Gigabit Ethernet enabled family of multicore MCUs. The devices integrate 16 32bit RISC cores and are said to be the first 10/100/1000 Ethernet solutions which offer a programmable MAC layer and webserver support.

Mark Lippett, general manager of the xCORE business unit, said: "This generation of xCORE-200 products can deliver twice the performance of the first generation of xCORE devices and has four times the on chip memory.

"A flexible Gigabit Ethernet port, together with a programmable XMOS USB 2.0 interface and 2Mbyte of flash means these devices are suitable for high performance consumer and professional applications, as well as for emerging IoT applications."

Built on the XCORE-200 XMOS has also unveiled its new xCORE-AUDIO processor family.Delivering bit-perfect audio across a rich set of audiophile and professional interfaces, xCORE-AUDIO processors have been designed to meet the demands of both high-resolution consumer audio and complex multichannel professional audio applications.

There are two product lines: xCORE-AUDIO Hi-Res, targeting the emerging market for stereo high resolution USB headphone amplifiers, DACs and AVR systems and xCORE-AUDIO Live, which supports professional audio applications includingDJ kits, mixing, audio content creation and conferencing.

The first xCORE-AUDIO Live products will appear in April 2015.
