San Jose, Ca. - IPextreme, Inc. has added the Freescale HCS08 8-bit microprocessor to its line of industry standard 16-bit and 32-bit microprocessors. The Freescale HCS08 is a synthesizable, high performance and low power 8-bit microprocessor that can be integrated into any ASIC or FPGA design.
The HCS08 also provides an easy migration path to Freescale's 32-bit ColdFire architecture. Using Freescale's CodeWarrior integrated development environment, assembly code for the HCS08 can be retargeted to the 32-bit V1 ColdFire with just a few mouse clicks.
Since the HCS08 IP core is object code compatible with currently available Freescale 68HC08 and HCS08 devices, embedded systems currently based on these processors are easily migrated to ASICs or FPGAs, and all software is fully binary compatible.
The HCS08 has already been utilized in many market segments such as consumer, industrial, medical, automotive and low-cost networking. Providing embedded system designers with a synthesizable version allows them to integrate their designs into ASICs or FPGAs while leveraging the extensive ecosystem of hardware and software development tools and maintaining complete software compatibility.
The Freescale HCS08 core is available for licensing now. Like all IPextreme IP, the core is offered in a complete package that includes synthesizable source code, integration test bench, and complete documentation. Encrypted versions of the core are available from the Core Store at US $10,000. Full source code versions of the HCS08 and other Core Store IP are also available for additional fees.
