DSP core, 224 Kbyte of internal SRAM M1 memory (1436 Kbyte
total), 16 way 16 Kbyte instruction cache (ICache), four-entry
write buffer, external cache support, programmable interrupt
controller (PIC), local interrupt controller (LIC), and low-power
Wait and Stop processing modes.
• 475 Kbyte M2 memory for critical data/temporary data buffering.

with all four cores, operating at the core frequency, with data bus
access of up to 128-bit reads and up to 64-bit writes, central
efficient round-robin arbiter for core access to the bus, and atomic
control of M2 memory access by the cores and local bus.
• Internal PLL configured are reset by configuration signal values.

address bus, support for multi-master designs, four-beat burst
transfers (eight-beat in 32-bit data mode), port size of 64/32/16/8
bits controlled by the internal memory controller,.access to
external memory or peripherals, access by an external host to
internal resources, slave support with direct access to internal
resources including M1 and M2 memories, and on-device
arbitration for up to four master devices.
• Direct slave interface (DSI) using a 32/64-bit slave interface with
21–25 bit addressing and 32/64-bit data transfers, direct access by
an external host to internal/external resources, synchronous or
asynchronous accesses with burst capability in synchronous
mode, dual or single strobe mode, write and read buffers to
improve host bandwidth, byte enable signals for 1/2/4/8-byte
write granularity, sliding window mode for access using a reduced
number of address pins, chip ID decoding to allow one CS signal
to control multiple DSPs, broadcast mode to write to multiple
DSPs, and big-endian/little-endian/munged support.

32-bit DSI/64-bit system bus, or 32-bit DSI/32-bit system bus.
• Flexible memory controller with three UPMs, a GPCM, a
page-mode SDRAM machine, glueless interface to a variety of
memories and devices, byte enables for 64-/32-bit bus widths, 8
memory banks for external memories, and 2 memory banks for

channels, up to four external peripherals, DONE or DRACK
protocol for two external peripherals,.service for up to 16 internal
requests from up to 8 internal FIFOs per channel, FIFO generated
watermarks and hungry requests, priority-based
time-multiplexing between channels using 16 internal priority
levels or round-robin time-multiplexing between channels,
flexible channel configuration with connection to local bus or
system bus, and flyby transfer support that bypasses the FIFO.
• Up to four independent TDM modules with programmable word
size (2, 4, 8, or 16-bit), hardware-base A-law/μ-law conversion,
up to 128 Mbps data rate for all channels, with glueless interface
to E1 or T1 framers, and can interface with H-MVIP/H.110
devices, TSI, and codecs such as AC-97.

including full- and half-duplex operation, full-duplex flow
controls, out-of-sequence transmit queues, programmable
maximum frame length including jumbo frames and VLAN tags
and priority, retransmission after collision, CRC generation and
verification of inbound/outbound packets, address recognition
(including exact match, broadcast address, individual hash check,
group hash check, and promiscuous mode), pattern matching,
insertion with expansion or replacement for transmit frames,
VLAN tag insertion, RMON statistics, local bus master DMA for
descriptor fetching and buffer access, and optional multiplexing
with GPIO (MII/RMII/SMII) or DSI/system bus signals lines
