7.1. The Configurable Processor as Controller

Configurable processor technology is often regarded as a path to creating processors with extremely high performance. The technology can also create processors with extremely small area and the Diamond 108Mini processor is an example of such a core. Figure 7.1 is a block diagram of the Diamond 108Mini processor core.

Figure 7.1. The Diamond 108Mini processor core implements a full 32-bit RISC processor while consuming only 0.41 mm2 of silicon and approximately 100 μW/MHz when implemented in a 130 nm, G-type process technology.

The Diamond 108Mini processor architecture contains ...
