IEEE Design & Test's Ken Wagner interviews Chris Rowen—founder, president, and CEO of Tensilica. Rowen has come to prominence in the past few years as having founded and developed a successful soft-core processor company. Tensilica specializes in efficiently programmable embedded microprocessors with integrated tool chains. In this interview, Rowen discusses the history of MIPS Computer Systems (a RISC processor company that he cofounded, and that was acquired by Silicon Graphics in 1992), his vision in founding Tensilica, and his perspective on the future of reconfigurable processors and multiprocessors.
