Kane Computing Offers TI-based Multi-Processor/Multi-Channel Video Module

1/6/2004 - Kane Computing announced the availability early in 2004 of a new multi-processor/multi-channel video module, based on Texas Instruments TMS320DM642 digital media processor.

SigDM642 module provides a multiprocessor, highly integrated, low power-consumption DSP solution. The modular approach to multiple DSP processing offers very small form-factor, higher channel density and performance, lower-cost, and several other advantages for OEM products.

The SigDM642 module includes up to three DM642s, one C6711/C6713 DSP, 2/4/8M x 32 SDRAM per processor, two fully independent video ADCs and video DACs and ethernet PHY interface at 10/100Mbps.

The module has a very small form-factor, approximately 60mm by 80mm and fits into a 72 pin SODIMM socket. It works with a range of PCI and PC/104 motherboards also available from Kane Computing.

Applications for the SigDM642-SODIMM module include video digitisation, DVDs, surveillance and security, PC video, HDTV, video conferencing, VCRs, LCD screens, projectors, and flat panel displays.

The modular approach is particularly well suited to providing a scalable solution for various markets including high-end consumer electronics, public sector and defence electronics, telecom, and video-over-Internet equipment applications that require a high number of channels and/or image processing such as popular compression algorithms.

The DM642 has three (3) onchip video ports, which provide a glueless interface to common video decoder and encoder Devices, and support multiple resolutions and video format standards. The DM642 onchip video ports include a VCXO Interpolated Control Port (VIC) and support for audio/video synchronisation.
