PowerPC 440 Embedded Core
Related links: PowerPC Cores

The IBM PowerPC 440 core is a 32-bit Book E CPU for use in custom logic applications. This licensable embedded core integrates a superscalar 7-stage pipeline, separate instruction and data caches, a JTAG port, trace FIFO, multiple timers and a memory management unit (MMU), plus optional L2 cache interface and FPU core, with 2.0 DMIPS/MHz performance. The core is available as a hard macro in the IBM premium process technologies including 130nm, and also as a fully synthesizable core that can be fabricated at multiple foundries. The 440 core can be integrated with peripheral and application-specific macro cores using the CoreConnectTM bus architecture to develop system-on-a-chip solutions.
