Critical Link, LLC announced a high-speed, high-end processing edition of its customizable CPU platform, the MityDSP®. The new MityDSP-Pro® collects, processes, and delivers data at CPU speeds up to 1.2 GHz. A Texas Instruments Incorporated’s (TI) TMS320C6455 DSP embedded in the MityDSP-Pro enables five to six times the processing power of the original MityDSP platform. The MityDSP-Pro has been designed specifically for the most data and processing-intensive applications, including embedded radar control and signal processing, high data rate real-time data acquisition, image processing, video, and fine-tolerance manufacturing test and control. The MityDSP platform is designed to save customers time and money without sacrificing on quality or performance.
The standard MityDSP-Pro tightly integrates the TI C6455 DSP up to 1.2 GHz with a Xilinx XC3S2000 Spartan 3 Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), FLASH, and DDR2 SDRAM memory subsystems and includes support for four 1x Serial Rapid I/O links. Both the DSP and the FPGA are capable of loading/executing programs and logic images developed by end users. As an option, MityDSP-Pro is also available with the TI TMS320C6454 processor which supports CPU clock speeds up to 1 GHz. In addition, the module is available with a larger FPGA (up to Spartan 4000 series).
The available interfaces – all field-proven – include analog-to-digital, digital-to-analog, Ethernet and GPIO.
In a typical implementation, Critical Link engineers work with their customers to create a production-ready I/O interface card to carry and customize the system interfaces driven by the MityDSP-Pro. The cost of the MityDSP-Pro is dependent on volume and the version chosen. In quantities of 100, each MityDSP-Pro standard version module is priced at $1,295. The MityDSP-Pro module is available in production quantities.
