The MCORE M340 architecture was designed to target the low-power, embedded application market. Building upon the MCORE M3 core, the M340 provides enhancements through the addition of an 8 K, 4-way set-associative unified (instruction/data) cache and an on-chip Memory Management Unit (MMU) that contains a single unified 64-entry TLB capable of mapping multiple page sizes. To achieve the power and performance requirements that today's portable electronics demand the M340 provides programmable features that allow the architecture to be optimized for a given application. This paper discusses the features of the M340 cache sub-system and illustrates the power and performance improvements that can be achieved through proper configuration
