                      News Release

                      March 6,1997

                      Hitachi Releases SH7410 as the First Product of SH-DSP Combining 32-Bit RISC Microcomputer and DSP

                      - 60 MIPS RISC processor performance and 120 MOPS DSP performance achieved with small core size -

                      Hitachi, Ltd. releases the SH7410 as the first product of the SH-DSP series of microcomputer combining a RISC microcomputer and DSP (digital signal processor). Order acceptance will begin in June 1997. This product provides 60 MIPS RISC processor performance plus 120 MOPS(*1) performance equal to or better than a general-purpose DSP with a small core size. Utilization of CPU performance and DSP performance can be flexibly balanced in line with the processing needs of the application. Since the CPU core and DSP core eliminate duplicate circuits and functions, and use 0.35-micron process, the SH7410 achieves a small core size of 4 square millimeters. This combination and mixed RISC/DSP program (single instruction stream) will enable systems to be made smaller in the communications, multimedia and control fields, and simplify software design.

                      The SuperH(TM)(*2) RISC engine family of 32-bit RISC microcomputers offers a high level of control thanks to its RISC architecture and also incorporates a multiplier that executes multiply-and-accumulate operations, enabling digital signal processing of, for example, voice data, image data, and servo control, to be carried out at high speed. However communications and multimedia applications such as digital cellular phones and digital still cameras, that handle large volumes of compressed voice and image data in real time, require a two-chip system configuration of a RISC, such as the existing SuperH, and a DSP capable of performing multiply-and-accumulate operations in one cycle. With this kind of system there was a need for further size reduction to improve portability. From the software design standpoint, too, there was the problem of the use of different programming languages in the RISC processor and the DSP because of the enormous time and skill requirements for program writing.

                      Against this background, and to enable systems to be made smaller and both hardware and software design to be simplified in fields requiring sophisticated system control and high-level digital signal processing performance, Hitachi developed the SH7410 (HD6437410F), which combines a RISC processor and a DSP on a level with a general-purpose model in a single chip with a small core size.

                      This product is fabricated by a 0.35-micron Al 3 layer process and has 8kB RAM and 48kB ROM. It performs system control at a high-performance level of 60 MIPS at 3 V. To improve DSP performance, the number of internal buses has been increased from one to three through the use of a Harvard architecture, enabling multiply-and-accumulate operations to be executed in one cycle instead of the previous three cycles. This has resulted in a digital signal processing performance of 120 MOPS, equivalent to that of a 60 MHz general-purpose DSP. The SH7410 incorporates DSP parallel instructions, no-overhead repeat instructions and a modulo address function essential for a DSP. When used in a digital still camera, the SH7410 can perform high-speed JPEG processing by means of software only-for example, compressing a 640 x 480 VGA(*3) screen in only 0.36 second (at Y:Cr:Cb= 4:1:1). And ADPCM voice compression--the key technology in PHS portable terminals--can be accomplished at 10 MIPS (1/6 of the SH7410's 60 MIPS capability) by means of the DSP functions, allowing the remaining capacity to be used to implement telecommunication control or other functions. The SH7410 outperforms the previous SuperH by approximately 2 to 3 times in signal processing program applications that push DSP to the limit, while also providing the flexibility needed to achieve the best balance between CPU and DSP performance utilization for the performance of the equipment.

                      In these SH-DSP chips, the CPU core and DSP core are merged, eliminating duplicate circuits and functions, and achieving a small core size. Moreover, software design is speeded up and simplified since the same program can be used for both cores. The instruction set is fully upward-compatible with the SH-1 and SH-2, enabling current SuperH users to make use of their existing software resources while adding high-level DSP capability. The SH7410 is mounted in a 176-pin LQFP package. As system support, Hitachi provides development cross software, an "E8000" emulator and an emulator incorporating a serial interface conforming to the JTAG interface standard, "E10". Additionally, Hitachi will provide 41 kinds of DSP libraries as part of SuperH C program, and application software (middleware).

                      Future plans for the SH-DSP include extending the memory lineup to a cache version and a flash version. Hitachi will also develop enhanced SH-DSP instructions and more comprehensive peripheral functions in line with market demand. For the SuperH family, there are plans for the development of a version with on-chip flash memory lineup and an SH-4 model with a superscalar CPU configuration and a target performance of 300 MIPS.
