"With a rapid customization of the 32-bit ultra-low power Xtensa processor, we were able to combine the control and DSP functions into one very efficient core, conserving power and area for these very space-constrained designs," said Teo Swee Ann, CEO of Espressif Systems. "We also utilized ultra-low voltage technology, dynamic voltage and frequency scaling, and an advanced power-control algorithm to achieve standby power consumption of less than 1.0mW and unrivaled 30uA RTC deep-sleep current consumption."

The advantages of the Tensilica Xtensa processor include:

  • The capability to integrate both performance-intensive digital signal processing (DSP) and embedded control processing functions in a single core
  • The patented automated Xtensa Processor Generator, which allows designers to create differentiated features with the lowest possible power/area
