The D32PRO is a royalty-free, silicon proven, high performance soft core of a single-chip 32-bit embedded controller, with Floating Point Coprocessor.


Thanks to its increased code density, the D32PRO meets the power and size requirements of new connected devices. That’s why both the power and performance of this IP Core predestine it as a real alternative for ARM Cortex M0/M0+/M1/M3 in the deeply embedded market and especially for the emerging market of connected devices (IoT). Responding to continuing demands for less power drain in system-on-chip (SoC) designs, DCD has developed the instruction set aimed at reducing the size of the system’s instruction memory. The D32PRO is aimed at low-power always on/always listening systems and those with less demanding clock frequencies such as Bluetooth Low Energy. Nevertheless, the core is perfect for embedded systems that require greater computational performance and system complexity by supporting dual- and multi-core systems as well as improved code density. DCD’s IP Core is fully customizable – it is delivered in an exact configuration to meet your requirements. The D32PRO comes with a wide variety of peripherals, like USB, SPI, LCD, HDLC, UART, Ethernet MAC, CAN, LIN, RTC, and many more – ready to be implemented with the CPU. The D32PRO is delivered with a fully automated test bench and a complete set of tests, allowing easy package validation at each stage of SoC design.
