Ambric will be exhibiting at SPIE from March 18-20 in Booth 54 in the Cypress Ballroom. At SPIE Defense+Security 2008, Ambric will showcase its new Am2045(tm) massively parallel processor array (MPPA) device, aDesigner(tm), a comprehensive software development tool suite, and the Am2045 GT(tm) development and accelerator board. The Am2045 device offers leading-edge performance with low power to meet the growing demands of embedded systems in the military and defense industries.
The Am2045 is capable of replacing multiple FPGAs and/or DSPs in an embedded system solution, as it has more than 300 processors on a single chip. It delivers over one teraOPS processing power and utilizes just 6 to 12 watts of power, depending on the application. The solution provides significant savings in development cost and time-to-market. Ambric’s MPPA device offers the performance capabilities of an FPGA, while eliminating the timing closure problems associated with an FPGA. In addition, Ambric’s device offers 6 to 25 times the performance and two-thirds reduction in code when compared with a TI C641x DSP. The Am2045 is well-suited for various military applications including phased-array radar, electro-optical, signal intelligence, and anti-submarine warfare.
Ambric’s Paul Y. Chen will also present a paper he co-authored with Ambric’s Michael Butts and Brad Budlong. The paper is entitled “Multi-Mode Sensor Processing on a Dynamically Reconfigurable Massively Parallel Processor Array.” The Ambric paper will be presented on March 18th at 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. in the poster session of the Signal Processing, Sensor Fusion, and Target Recognition Conference, the Palms Ballroom at the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort and Convention Center, Orlando, Florida.
