Cambridge Consultants is a leading technology and innovation company that licenses the XAP family of 16- and 32-bit RISC processor cores with development and debug tools. Applications for XAP processors include wireless communications chips such as Bluetooth, ZigBee, GPS, RFID and NFC as well as chips for sensor networks, medical devices, automotive, consumer, retail, metering, energy and industrial products. When energy is at a premium, as in battery-powered systems, then a XAP processor is the ideal choice.
The latest XAP4 and XAP5 processors bring unrivalled performance and features to the 16-bit processor IP arena including very high code density that delivers significant memory size savings, making them suitable for high-volume, low-cost products. The processors are supported by the xIDE software development tools and SIF debug technology, which combine to reduce risk and time-scale for projects using XAP cores. Designers using these tools and cores should get their ASICs right first time. Visit our website to find out how to download xIDE for a 16- or 32-bit XAP processor and try it free for 30 days. We can customise and brand xIDE for clients needing to deliver a development environment with their ASICs.
