T0 (Torrent-0) is a single-chip fixed-point vector microprocessor designed for multimedia, human-interface, neural network, and other digital signal processing tasks. T0 includes a MIPS-II compatible 32-bit integer RISC core, a 1 Kbyte instruction cache, a high performance fixed-point vector coprocessor, a 128-bit wide external memory interface, and a byte-serial host interface. T0 implements the Torrent ISA described in a separate "Torrent Architecture Manual" technical report. This manual contains detailed information on the T0 vector microprocessor, including information required to build T0 into a system, instruction execution timings, and information on low level T0 software interfaces required for operating system support.
