Sundance announced availability of its second generation, high performance SMT8121 communications development platform. Already used as the environment of choice for High Speed Direct IF by some of the world’s leading electronics companies, the SMT8121 delivers 1Gsps sustained performance and features high performance, low power FPGAs and DSPs connected to multi-channel high speed data converters from e2v. The SMT8121 is a modular system comprising e2v’s AT84AD001BCTD Dual 8-bit 1Gsps ADC, multiple Xilinx Virtex II Pro and Virtex 4 FPGAs, TI C64 DSP and DAC technology from Fujitsu. Used for multi-carrier/ multi-standard cellular systems, high direct-IF infrastructures, radar systems and test equipment the SMT8121 provides two input and two output channels each sampling at 1Gsps.
The SMT8121 is fully supported and supplied with the 3L Diamond design environment that allows the user to easily and efficiently implement algorithms on any of the available DSPs, FPGAs and PowerPCs. Host-side software interface to the PC is included and the solution is supported by TI’s Code Composer Studio.
Available immediately from Sundance, the SMT8121 provides maximum flexibility and field upgradability to a range of FPGA and DSP parts. The SMT8121 maintains the legacy tradition of Sundance’s forward and backwards compatibility.
