Meta HTP SoC Application Processor
With the increasing complexity of electronics products – and the software within
them - ready access to key software components is critical in reducing development
costs and achieving on-time product delivery. Imagination offer a broad spectrum
of software for their range of Meta Application Processor IP Cores including a range
of operating systems, market proven audio codecs, pre-ported application-specific
libraries and industry standard application frameworks.
Imagination offers a range of synthesizable 32-bit applications processors based on a common instruction-set architecture (ISA) that deliver high performance via multithreading combined with low power consumption and low system cost.
Meta’s multi-threading combined with its high performance DSP capabilities allows a single Meta processor core to optimally address problems traditionally solved with multiple processors and DSP cores. Real-time or modem code can be segregated from communications or application code by running on separate Meta threads, removing unwanted interactions between the two disparate tasks yet keeping them together on a common core, streamlining development, and minimising licensing / development / tools costs.
Multi-threading also allows up to 3 times the throughput of conventional processors for the same silicon area and clock speed, increasing efficiency and offering lower power and cost than competing traditional processor solutions.
Meta processors are used by some of the world’s leading semiconductor manufacturers, who together have shipped in excess of one hundred million processors since launch.
