TI Debuts First QML Class V Floating-Point DSP for Space Applications

3/24/2004 - Addressing the demanding performance needs of space-level electronic systems, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) [NYSE: TXN] announced the industry´s first digital signal processor (DSP) qualified for space-based applications. A high performance floating point device, the SMV320C6701 DSP meets the standards of military performance-38535 (MIL-PRF-38535) Qualified Manufacturer List (QML) Class V (space).

Communications and control systems, planetary landers and rovers, sample collectors and many other advanced signal processing applications require space-level component technologies. With the release of the SMV320C6701 DSP with Class V processing, TI is meeting the demand for semiconductors that provide greater performance, lower power and higher integration levels, while operating in the extreme environment of space.

Features Meet Performance Needs of Space-Based Applications
Following are a few features of the SMV320C6701:

Available Today
The SMV320C6701, order as 5962-9866101VXA, comes in a ceramic ball grid array package and is available now for ordering from TI and its authorized distributors. Suggested resale pricing in 10-piece quantities is $4,000.00.

In addition, TI´s QML Class V product line provides a strong analog and mixed-signal portfolio, including power management products, comparators, amplifiers and interface devices. A solid digital logic catalog offers high-speed CMOS, advanced high-speed CMOS, low voltage CMOS and BiCMOS technologies. TI is currently evaluating the release of additional Class V processed ceramic DSPs. For more information please see www.ti.com/space.

The TMS320C67xTM generation is supported by TI´s eXpressDSPTM software and development tools including the CCStudioTM v2.2 Integrated Development Environment (IDE), DSP/BIOSTM real-time kernel and a wide range of eXpressDSP-compliant software and hardware from the DSP industry´s most comprehensive software and hardware third-party network.
