AdvancedIO Systems introduced the V8200 Development Platform for high-bandwidth applications. The V8200 is a ready-to-go, highly programmable, compact desktop system that helps OEMs get new products and services to market faster. The V8200 MicroTCA platform features an Intel Core 2 Duo system controller, Linux Fedora Core 11, expressXG Framework software, a high-performance XAUI data switch, and two 10 Gigabit Ethernet FPGA processing line cards. The V8200 is available now.
Triad Semiconductor introduced the TSX1001 mixed-signal ARM Cortex-M0 processor. The TSX1001 ARM Cortex-M0 processor features 16-bit ADC, 12-bit DAC, and uncommitted op-amps. Engineering samples of the Triad Semiconductor TSX1001 will be available in May 2010. The TSX1001 will be supported by industry standard embedded software tool flows such as the ARM RealView development suite.
The CommAgility AMC-2C87W3 digital baseband module features L1 PHY (physical layer), L2 RLC/MAC (Radio Link Control/Media Access Control), S1/X2 interface, and security processing for LTE (Long Term Evolution) or WiMAX. The AMC-2C87W3 integrates the PHY, RLC/MAC, transport (including all backhaul and air interface security) and antenna connectivity requirements of eNodeB into a compact single width solution. It provides end-to-end data handling from raw radio IQ data through to backhaul IP packets. The Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) will be available in March 2010.
eASIC introduced two new lower power device options for their eASIC Nextreme Family. The NX750LP and NX750 Nextreme devices are now available with operating voltage down to 1.0V thereby enabling designers to achieve up to 40% lower power consumption. The new 1.0V device options are optimized for applications that require low cost and low power such as smart meters, portable projectors, toys, and handheld medical devices.
Triad Semiconductor announced the Mocha-1 array. According to Triad, the Mocha-1 is the first system-on-chip (SoC) to integrate the ARM Cortex-M0 with the via-configurable analog and digital functions. Triad’s Mocha-1 array enables electronic system designers to customize analog and digital features with lower power consumption and greater system cost savings than last-generation ASIC solutions.
Signatec introduced the PX1500-4 high-speed digitizer. The PX1500-4 captures four synchronized channels at sampling rates up to 1.5 GHz, or two synchronized channels up to an amazing 3 GHz when interleaving the ADC data. Dual embedded Virtex-5 FPGAs control the PX1500-4 board functionality with available DSP Slice and logic resources optionally available in both chips for custom in-line signal processing. Signatec’s PX1500-4 is currently shipping with a 6 week delivery forecast.
The PNX5130, from NXP Semiconductors, a video co-processor for enabling 3DTV, frame-rate conversion (FRC), and local backlight dimming in a single chip. The PNX5130 eliminates the need for external FPGA devices to support 3DTV. The PNX5130 enables conversion of all popular 3DTV formats to both line and frame interleaved displays, and is designed for maximum flexibility to support emerging 3DTV standards. Engineering samples of the PNX5130 are available immediately. The final software release will be available in Q1 2010.
