The MP98 low-power, high-performance microprocessor architecture has been described. It supports smart information terminals using single-chip multiprocessor technologies. Its first prototype (code named Merlot) achieved 1 giga instructions/sec at 1 watt. Several basic algorithms such as hashing, sorting, and searching were realized in artificial intelligence on the multithreaded architecture. The multiple control flow execution (MCFE) in MP98 helps compilers extract parallelism from software. Performance estimates for speech recognition application has been presented.
