Broadcom reveals BRCM 5000 MIPS-compatible CPU

Posted on Thursday, November 25 2010 @ 05:30:56 CET by

EE Times reports Broadcom has developed the BRCM 5000, a new MIPS-compatible processor for its broadband SoCs.
In an exclusive article in Microprocessor Report this week, Broadcom revealed that it has developed a new MIPS-compatible CPU, the BRCM 5000, for its broadband SoCs. This CPU, also known by its code-name Zephyr, is the latest in a series that the company has developed over the past decade under an architecture license from MIPS.

According to Dan Marotta, executive VP and general manager of Broadcom's Broadband Communication Group, these CPUs have been a secret weapon for the company. "Our small but powerful CPU cores enhance the capabilities of our industry-leading digital-home solutions," Marotta said. "As a result, Broadcom processors enable a better consumer experience than products based on commodity off-the-shelf cores." Products using these Broadcom-designed CPUs generate more than $2 billion per year in sales.
