s262PCI-104 Carrier (SMT130) and a Digital Video Infrastructure Processor TIM (Dual C6455 @ 1GHz) and Virtex-4 FX60 (SMT362)

The SMT262 is made up of the SMT130 (A PCI104 single site TIM carrier) and a SMT362 (Digital Video Infrastructure Processor TIM, 2x C6455 @ 1GHz, 256Mb DDR2-500 SDRAM / DSP, 1x Virtex-4 FX60, 2x SHB, 2x RSL Interface, 4 ComPorts and General Purpose I/O ). This combination gives high performance processing in a compact form factor.

The SMT130 is a single site module carrier developed to provide access to a TIM module over the PCI-104 PCI bus.

Data transfers of 50-100Mbytes per second can be achieved to and from the Global Bus when accessing the SRAM and PCI Bridge, allowing fast data transfers.

The card has an on-board JTAG controller which is software compatible with the XDS-510. This allows Code Composer studio and 3L applications to be used to debug/upload software to a DSP TIM.

With an operating frequency of 1GHz and 2MB on-chip level 2 cache each, the TMS320C6455 DSPs have the highest fixed-point processing power in the ‘C6000 range. These, combined with the stunning Virtex-4 FX60 FPGA, with nearly 60,000 logic cells and 16 RocketIO serial transceivers, allow users of the SMT362 to gain breakthrough performance at the lowest cost.

Comprehensive software tools are provided to make algorithm implementation easy so OEMs can quick-start their development of advanced video infrastructures, HDTV, IP and telecoms technology. Software includes TI’s Code Composer Studio Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and 3L’s Diamond FPGA.

The SMT362 is the ideal DSP and FPGA platform for developers of digital video products and follows hot on the heels of the SMT339 its analogue-video cousin.
