The Andes Technology N13 processor is a high performance CPU core architected for computation intensive applications running either on operating systems or as bare metal. The N13 is designed to serve the demanding requirements of application processors in SoCs for consumer electronics such as HDTVs, home media servers, cable and over-the-top set top boxes, as well as SoCs for the switches and routers delivering content to these devices.
Complete with Memory Management Unit, L1/L2 cache, Local Memory, DMA, FPU, Vectored Interrupt, and Branch Prediction, the N13 easily runs complex operating system such as Linux. And with an 8-stage pipeline and a clock rate over 1 GHz, the core delivers impressive performance of 2.05 DMIPS/MHz to serve the most demanding computing environments. Furthermore, the N13 AndesCore™ supports the latest AndeStar™ V3 architecture, which is accompanied with toolchain, IDE, RTOS, Linux, middleware, and platform development IP. The N13's strength plus its ecosystem provide designers with the competitive edge for success in their embedded system solutions.
