This small processor consumes only 5 watts and can work even without a heat sink. The processor built three Ethernet controllers (two Gigabit and one 10-Gigabit), DDR3-1600 memory controller that supports up to 8 GB, Controller PCIe Gen.3, SATA 3.0 controller (6Gbps), USB 2.0 controller.
The processor is built on a 2-core MIPS 32 r5 P5600 (the world’s first implementation of the processor on this core) running at up to 1.2GHz, built-in cache memory of 1 MB, 28 nm process technology.

The performance of Baikal-T1 is comparable with Intel Atom processors and processors of modern smartphones. It will be used primarily in high-power telecommunications equipment (routers, managed switches), but is also suitable for thin clients.
The company “T-Platforms” starts production of candy bars Tavolga terminal TP-T22BT T1 processor Baikal. They will be used to create automated jobs out there, where there are special security requirements.
“Tavolga” runs Linux and can be equipped with any compatible with its applications – Service LibreOffice office suite, Firefox web browser and many others.
“Tavolga Terminal” also works in terminal mode as a web client, allowing remote access to any application through a Web browser or by using the remote desktop protocols such as RDP or VNC.
“Baikal Electronics” signed a memorandum on scientific-technical cooperation with Lenovo.
Lenovo has demonstrated a working model monoblock ThinkCentre Tiny-in-one 23, built on the Baikal-T1 processor.
Today I publish the first data about the speed of the processor Baikal-T1, running at 1 GHz.
Coremark: 10342 coremarks (2 thread), Whetsnone: 1052 MWIPS (2 thread), Dhrystone: 3651 VAX MIPS (1 thread).
Coremark results for most processors can be found here.
By the time of completion of the Baikal-T1 processor company has existed for three years, it operated 70 Russian Electronics specialists and programmers.
The basis was taken licensed core MIPS P5600, besides Ethernet controllers were licensed, SATA and USB. Russian developers was to assemble these components together and make them work correctly with each other and make the wiring on a chip modern topology of 28 nm. Some components of the processor designed from the ground up.
Baikal-T1 processor turned out quite competitive and due to the large number of different interfaces on the chip has advantages over competing products of foreign developers. At a cost of about $ 60, he will create a telecommunication and industrial equipment, power dispatching and thin clients, automation and control systems. Russian origin guarantees no “bookmarks” and allow its use in structures with high requirements for information security.
Now Baikal Electronics is working on the development of new processors based on ARM architecture – Baikal-M for desktop PCs, embedded systems, industrial automation, smart cameras, and Baikal-MS for mikroserverov and embedded systems.
