Tile64

The name for the first processor in the family of Tile Processor chips from Tilera Corporation. The TILE64 processor is based on an architecture that can scale to hundreds, or even thousands of cores. The processor contains 64 full-featured, programmable cores, each capable of running its own operating system. Tilera's architecture eliminates the on-chip bus interconnect by placing a communications switch on each processor core and arranging them in a grid fashion on the chip to create an efficient two-dimensional traffic system for packets. Each of the 64 cores is a general-purpose processor that includes L1 and L2 caches, as well as an innovative distributed L3 cache. Initial target markets for the TILE64 processor include the embedded networking and digital multimedia markets.
