PCI-104 Carrier (SMT130) and Disk Storage Module; C6415 DSP; Virtex II VP20; SATA Link; Rocket Serial Link (RSL) (SMT387)


The SMT287 is made up of the SMT130 (a PCI-104 single site TIM specification carrier) and an SMT387 (Disk Storage Module; ‘C6415 DSP; Virtex II VP20; SATA Link; Rocket Serial Link)

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.

The SMT387 is the latest of a long tradition of Sundance to provide Modular solutions and the SMT387 roots lie with the SMT307, that later was updated to the SMT337 and the common feature is the integration of a DSP, Memory, Flash and ‘Storage’ solution. The SMT387 has a all of above and it has got the latest generation of Serial ATA controller, a 600MHz DSP and a ‘State-of-the-art’ Virtex-II Pro and this is the first Module available that will sport the new Rocket Serial Link interface that Sundance will be using in the future for all our InterModule communications. SMT387 will work in an array of Module as a slave or as a host and can also run ‘Stand-Alone’ and use the on-Module flash for booting and control of the Disk Array.
