Espressif Systems Represented at the 2017 Tensilica Day in Hannover
Feb 16, 2017
Jeroen Domburg, Software Manager and Technical Marketing Manager at Espressif Systems, was invited to give a presentation at the 2017 Tensilica Day, which was organized by Cadence Design Systems and the Institute of Microelectronic Systems at the University of Hannover, on 16th February. The theme of this year’s workshop, which was held for the second consecutive year, was about Application Specific Instruction-Set Processors (ASIPs). Jeroen’s talk was entitled: “IoT on the Cheap: How Espressif Leverages Xtensa Cores”.
In his hour-long talk and Q&A session, Jeroen presented how Espressif Systems started in the IoT industry, and went on to discuss various technical aspects of ESP32 in light of our previous chips, ESP8089 and ESP8266. He then expanded on how ESP32 utilizes the Tensilica L106 processor.
ESP32 is a dual-core system with two Harvard Architecture Xtensa LX6 central processing units (CPUs). All embedded memory, external memory and peripherals are located on the data bus and/or the instruction bus of these CPUs. ESP32’s bluetooth specifications are recognized and certified by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), a not-for-profit, non-stock international corporation headquartered in Kirkland, Washington, with local offices in China, South Korea, Japan, and Sweden.
