Hyperstone introduces E2 - 32-Bit RISC

DSP Microcontroller with ADC and Serial Interface Engine

(PresseBox) (Konstanz, ) Hyperstone introduced its high-performance E2-32-Bit RISC/DSP Microcontroller with additional on-chip highlights such as programmable serial communication engine, an analog to digital converter (ADC), and 32kBytes on chip (I-RAM) complemented by an external memory and peripheral interface controller. Maximum efficiency in terms of power consumption, gate count, and ease of programming, when utilizing RISC and DSP functionality, are inherent features of the unique Hyperstone RISC/DSP architecture.

Based on the Hyperstone E1-32XSR - RISC/DSP Processor Core Architecture, the E2 Microcontroller offers among others:

- 32-Bit unified RISC and DSP processor architecture
- Peak performance of 640MOPS and 160MHz
- Dynamic frequency scaling, power down and sleep mode
- Power consumption of about 200mW typical
- Instruction set compatible to all Hyperstone E1 based controllers
- Parallel execution of ALU, DSP, and load/store instructions
- Very high code density using variable length 16, 32, and 48-Bit instructions
- 32kByte fully static on-chip memory (I-RAM)
- Programmable 8-channel serial communication engine
- Implementation of 4 UART ports possible
- 10-Bit, 8-channel multiplexed A/D-converter with sample rate of 182kHz
- Versatile 2-channel DMA engine
- Real Time Clock

E2 is optimally used in industrial sensing and control applications but also in cost sensitive applications including metering and scanning or in consumer applications.

Additionally, Hyperstone offers a Development kit including board and software development tools such as an integrated development Environment (IDE), C/C++ compiler, linker, assembler, source-level debugger with profiler, runtime kernel, and DSP library.

"The new Hyperstone E2 is based on the well proven E1 RISC/DSP core. It uses the same feature set but enriched by ADC and SIO functionality to allow easy integration into customer designs. With the additional features customers can reduce external components and optimize their board layout. First customers already benefit from these additions and were able to reduce the number of components on their boards. This development seamlessly continues the history of very efficient Hyperstone microcontrollers started with the first E1 in 1990 by Otto Müller.", said Steffen Allert, Vice President Sales and Field Application Support of Hyperstone.

The E2 RISC/DSP Microcontroller is currently available in different options:

- E2-LBL07 --- 144 pin LQFP, RoHS, 0 to + 70 °C

- E2-RBL07 --- 144 pin LQFP, RoHS, - 40 to + 85 °C

- EV13-E2-LBL07 --- Development Board

Hyperstone GmbH

Hyperstone, a fabless semiconductor and microprocessor design company, was founded in 1990 and is based in Konstanz, Germany. Hyperstone is a member of CML Microsystems Plc group, traded on the London Stock Exchange. Together with subsidiaries in Taiwan, USA and with other worldwide partners, Hyperstone serves a global customer base. Hyperstone's research and development operations are based in Germany and Taiwan. Industry-leading partners provide world-class wafer subcontracting, packaging, and testing services. Hyperstone's success is based on the unique design of a unified RISC/DSP processor architecture that provides both a fast RISC processor for data and control functions together with a powerful DSP unit for efficient algorithm execution. Hyperstone designs require less silicon, are more power efficient and require lower software complexity when compared to conventional dual-core designs. The product scope ranges from packaged devices such as ASSPs (Application Specific Standard Products) and ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits) to licensing of intellectual property (IP). Hyperstone's RISC/DSP core has proven successful within millions of applications including flash memory solutions (SD/MMC, microSD, eMMC, MCP, DoM, MCM, SSD, ...), digital still cameras, industrial automation, networking, embedded web-servers, robotics, voice processing, biometric solutions, and many more.
