XMOS series processors

Postby aclassifier » Thu Oct 27, 2016 12:23 pm

I that xTIMEcomposer 14.2.2 didn't support G-series processors.

Where's the link to an overview of the series?

What's the nomenclature in the naming?

I am trying here: http://www.teigfam.net/oyvind/home/tech ... processors

Pasted:

This confuses me! What’s the “series” used on startKIT board (XS1-A8-DEV but read data sheet of XS1-U16A-128-FB217) and xCORE-XA board (XS1-XAU8A-10-FB265)? How do I read it?

XS1 A-Series
XS1 L-Series
XS1 U-Series
XS1 X-series
XS1 G-Series (Not recommended for new designs, no compiler support from xTIMEcomposer 14.2.2)
Any more?

Correct. We have stopped supporting this series with new compiler versions.

Looking at https://www.xmos.com/products/silicon, it looks like we only show the newer chips

XS1 A-Series
A = Analog - Basically an XS1-U with no USB PHY. i.e. just DC-DCs + ADC
XS1 L-Series
Vanilla logic only XS1 device (L stands for 'low power' c.f. G-series)
XS1 U-Series
U = USB (+ DC-DCs + ADC)
XS1 XA-series
XA = eXtened Architecture, or Xmos/ARM. Single tile XS1-L + ARM M3 cortex
XS1 G-Series (Not recommended for new designs, no compiler support from xTIMEcomposer 14.2.2)
G = "General" purpose device. Our first chip.
Any more?
xCORE-200 U (USB PHY), L (no PHY using L as per XS1), E (USB PHY + RGMII interface i.e. E=Ethernet, although any of them can do MII interface to 100Mbps PHY)

Thanks!

It's so complicated to paste the list from my blog here, so I'll just leave it there (XMOS series of processors). I am not certain if I got it right, but I want it right! I would be glad for corrections.

Are the xCore-200 also called
  • xCore-200 U-Series
  • xCore-200 L-Series
  • xCore-200 E-Series
?

I got the semantics but not the nomenclature as related to the most significant part numbers. But I might as well stop where I am.

Allow me to re-order your list slightly :

xCore-200 XL-Series - these are general purpose devices with no USB or Ethernet
xCore-200 XU-Series - incorporates USB interface
xCore-200 XE-Series - incorporates Gigabit Ethernet and USB interface

I hope this helps.
All the best,
John

Thanks for your replies! I upgraded at my page.

Please keep me posted should there arrive an official XMOS note on this!

I have updated in my blog note about how xCORE-VOICE XVSM-2000 processor may be categorised [1]. Is it a separate entry?

Also, please search for "microphone" in that list.

Hi aclassifier,

Indeed the XVSM-2000 is a separate processor and hopefully the first in a long line of processors that are part of the xCORE-VOICE family.

All the best,
John

John, thanks. I have added it to the table, but the table doesn't come out "symmetrical". There is now some "series" and some "family": http://www.teigfam.net/oyvind/home/tech ... processors. Is the taxonomy now correct enough?

That is asymmetrical but correct.
Thanks
John
