PA-RISC Processors

Hitachi PA/50


The Hitachi PA/50 is a PA-RISC version 1.1 compatible processor designed and manufactured by Hitachi, released in 1993. Two designs were developed: M and L (L for low-cost). They were used as personal workstation processors and high-end embedded controllers. Hitachi integrated a set of features previously not implemented at that time in other PA-RISC processors, e.g., on-chip caches, data-prefetching, a power-saving mode and SDRAM support.
