Kane Computing Ships Ateme DSP/FPGA Co-Processing Development Kit

4/25/2005 - Kane Computing is now shipping a new Ateme development kit, complementing existing audio/video hardware platforms, the DMCK (Digital Media Co-processing Kit) dedicated to collaborative processing between DSP and FPGA.

The board integrates the Altera's Cyclone EP1C20 FPGA and Texas Instruments' DM642 that combines outstanding processing capabilities with the interfaces needed for the professional video market. The Cyclone FPGA is directly connected to video encoder and decoder thus allowing video pre- and post-processing. Its link to the DSP (via the EMIF) offers synchronous and asynchronous high rate transfer for co-processing.

It features analog/digitial audio and video interfaces as well as many communciation links: Ethernet 10/100 Mbit/s, UART interfaces: RS232, RS422, Emulation port, Host Port Interface, GPIOs. This feature-rich development kit, suitable for Multimedia, Video Security, Video Entertainment, Video Conferencing and many more applications, is the ideal product to speed up end product time-to-market.

"The DMCK platform allows mixed developments between DSP and FPGA. It also eases a step by step migration of functions from DSP to FPGA." said Francois-Xavier PARISOT, Product Line Manager of Ateme.
