10/22/2002 - Data Translation, a leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of high-performance data acquisition, imaging and machine vision products, announced it has joined Texas Instruments' (TI) third party network. More than 600 independent companies provide TMS320 digital signal processing (DSP)-related products and services to help expedite their customers' development efforts and reduce time-to-market. Data Translation also announced the selection of TI's TMS320C67x generation of floating-point DSPs as the processor core in its future release of high-speed, high-performance data acquisition boards.

Based on the TMS320C6711 DSP, the new Fulcrum II Series combines the real-time power of DSP with 24-bit A/D and D/A resolution, and the speed and ease-of-use of USB 2.0. Standard Texas Instruments' development tools are used with Data Translation's high-performance high-precision analog circuitry to provide custom off-the-shelf embedded solutions that reduce time-to-market.

According to Tim Ludy, Data Translation's product marketing manager, "The proven track record of Data Translation's data acquisition solutions combined with the power and accuracy of TI's C67xTM generation of floating-point DSPs will bring the benefits of fast, precise and powerful data acquisition to the embedded market."
