CSPI Introduces New Product Line Leveraging Multicore ARM/DSP Technology to
Deliver Power Efficiency and Accelerate Signal Processing Performance
BILLERICA, Mass., Sept. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CSP Inc. (Nasdaq:CSPI)
MultiComputer Division, a leading supplier of commercially developed rugged
embedded computers, introduced its KeyDSP product line today at the IEEE High
Performance Extreme Computing Conference (HPEC'13). KeyDSP products feature
Texas Instrument's latest KeyStone II architecture, which integrates multicore
ARM® processors with DSP cores as on-chip accelerators to deliver the highest
performance at the lowest power level.
KeyDSP products incorporate the KeyStone II 66AK2H12 System-on-a-Chip (SoC)
based on the 28 nm process technology. This SoC integrates four multicore
cache-coherent ARM® Cortex™-A15 MPCore™ processors, eight fixed-and
floating-point TMS320C66x DSPs, packet processing and Ethernet switching to
deliver the computational performance and high speed interconnect needed for
mission critical radar, video, and signal processing applications.
The first product, KeyDSP V1, is a full height, full length PCIe board
featuring the KeyStone II SoC; an Altera Arria Series low power, high
bandwidth FPGA; a single width FMC site initially supporting a camera link
interface card and allowing for the addition of other application-specific
cards; and optional support for a 10GbE transceiver on the front panel.
Designed to offer a simple solution for getting started with your KeyStone II
development efforts, the KeyDSP V1 provides support for the TI software
development environment and/or nCores's Lithium Tool Suite. The TI software
environment includes a Linux kernel distribution with GNU tools for the ARM
cores; SYSBIOS and the eclipse-based Code Composer Studio™ for the DSP cores.
nCore's Lithium Tool Suite is bundled with the KeyDSP products, adding a board
specific u-boot and optimized Linux Kernel for the ARM Cortex-A15 CorePac
along with debugging and performance tools to enhance productivity.
Additionally, both environments support accessing the DSP cores using OpenMP
KeyDSP V1 products are currently in production and expected to be available
for delivery in Q4 2013.
