The XMOS architecture scales from real-time systems with a single multithreaded processor to systems with thousands of processors. Concurrent processing, communications and I/O are supported by the instruction set of the XCore processors and by the message-routing techniques and protocols in the XMOS interconnect. The event-driven architecture supports energy-efficient multicore and multichip systems in which cores are active only when needed.
