The newly developed micro controller comes with a CPU core of SH2A-FPU, enabling a processing of 480 million instructions per second (MIPS) on a wavelength of 200 MHz and a floating operation of 400 MFLOPS of powered processing.
In 1978, a Cray supercomputer processed 160 million instructions per second and cost $20 million, according to Peppers and Rogers.
NASDAQ:MCHP), a leading provider of microcontroller and analog semiconductors, today announced that it continues the production rollout of its 16-bit product portfolio with a new dsPIC(R) Digital Signal Controller (DSC) that offers designers a performance speed of 30 million instructions per second (MIPS), self-programming capabilities via Flash memory, and industrial and extended temperature ranges.
The computing power in the center has the capacity to process 960 million instructions per second -- that's equal to the processing power of some 48,000 standard personal computers," said Liebhaber.
