What are the key differences between the ADSP-SC598 and ADSP-SC594 processors?

  • The ADSP-SC598 processor is a multi-core with two SHARC+® DSPs and a Cortex®-A55 Arm® core while the ADSP-SC594 processor is a multi-core with two SHARC+® DSPs and a Cortex ®-A5 Arm® core. The Cortex®-A55 core in the ADSP-SC598 processor can run at a maximum core clock frequency of 1.2 GHz and the Cortex®-A5 core in the ADSP-SC594 processor can run at a maximum core clock frequency of 1 GHz. The SHARC+® cores in both the processors can run at the same maximum frequency.

    The ADSP-SC598 processor has added new and also enhanced a few peripheral sets compared to the ADSP-SC594 processor. The ADSP-SC598 processor has added an eMSI peripheral for supporting eMMC devices and a CGU2 block which is used to clock DMC. The EMAC on the ADSP-SC598 processor has a lot of new features and enhancements as compared to that on the ADSP-SC594 processor. For more specific information on the available peripherals please refer to the product datasheet.
