9/30/2002 - RF Design, a leading US trade publication focused on RF and microwave design engineers, named Adelante Technologies’ Saturn digital signal processing (DSP) core "Product of the Month" for June 2002. Adelante is a leading developer of open system-on-chip (SoC) digital signal processing solutions for the wireless, consumer infotainment and networking markets.
Said Roger Lesser, RF Design Editor: "Adelante Technologies faced stiff competition, but demonstrated superiority in a number of areas, including performance and power efficiency. Above all, the RT-level Saturn core offers technological innovations that advance communications product design to the next level."
The high-speed Saturn DSP core and subsystem, launched in March 2002, has the lowest power consumption and smallest silicon area per operation of any DSP on the market today. These configurable, scalable DSP cores are optimized for battery operated, high volume and cost-sensitive applications such baseband processing for wireless handsets and LANs, speech recognition and such consumer applications as MP3 players, digital cameras, PDAs, VoIP devices.
Said Jean-Luc Bouvresse, Adelante’s Chief Operating Officer, "We are proud to be recognized for our DSP innovations. Our technology, which is completely open and includes state-of-the-art C-based design tools and subsystem, provides OEMs as well as other chip manufacturers and foundries, with benchmark processing performance at very low power and low cost. It is the most effective alternative to the DSP solutions offered by captive DSP chipmakers."
RF Design highlighted several key features of the Adelante Saturn DSP core. Among them:
At the heart of Adelante’s open, embedded DSP solution is a fully programmable, configurable Saturn DSP core coupled with one or more application-specific co-processors. Adelante’s patented Application-Specific Instructions (ASIs) and its Application-Specific Execution Units (AXUs) enable systems designers to create their own instructions and data path elements in order to optimize trade-offs between performance and power without having to change, re-synthesize or adapt the software development tool set.
