Engineers have tuned the newest member of Toshiba's TX SystemRISC family of 32-bit MIPS-based processors for high-performance PDAs (personal digital assistants) and interactive communications applications. The TMPR3922U is a 166-MHz, 2.5V microprocessor with power-management features to conserve battery life. A high-speed multiplier and accumulator (MAC) executes 32 X 32-bit multiplies with a 64-bit accumulation in a single clock cycle to support software modems and various memory controllers. Interfaces include ISDN, RS-232C, IrDA, and PCMCIA. An integrated translation lookaside buffer (TLB) is on chip to support Microsoft's Windows CE operating system. Toshiba is also offering a TMPR3922U reference system for OEMs developing Windows CE products, as well as support tools and software. Toshiba America Electronic Components: Product Code 4280
