Chromatic announced the Mpact media processor architecture in October 1995. In October 1996 hardware and software were released to production and the second generation architecture was announced. This paper begins with an update on the first generation media processors, with hardware and software status. Next, it covers the growing goals of multimedia performance and describes Chromatic's next generation media processor architecture. Finally, the newer modules of the architecture are discussed in more detail.
