DSP jumpstart

Paul Boughton

Sundance Multiprocessor Technology has created a new high-speed board that liberates DSP system designers, engineers and research specialists from having to custom-design their own boards or interconnections.

Created to set pulses racing, the SMT395Q features four of Texas Instruments' highest powered ixed-point DSPs, each running at 1GHz and each capable of supplying 8000MIPS of processing power.

To ensure blistering performance, the design team at Sundance has integrated the quad DSP Texas Instruments Module (TIM) with 256MB of DDR SDRAM and the largest available Xilinx Virtex-II Pro field programmable gate array (FPGA).

With up to 125000 available logic cells and ready-written cores for many functions the SMT395Q promises customers a jump-start in developing their cutting-edge DSP systems. Everything for the technologist is contained in this one desirable and compact hardware package.

The SMT395Q board is easily accessed from a host computer by plugging into a TIM carrier board. Software support for the host interface is provided. FPGA and DSP programming is simple to upload from the host PC using supplied software.

The SMT395Q is easy to expand to suit even the most challenging DSP project.
