Supporting distributed multiprocessor application development on Analog Devices' TigerSHARC processors, the Trident operating environment provides designers the ability to code, debug, and optimize applications on multiprocessor, multi-board, and multi-system platforms. The software suite, which can support up to 65,000 processors, includes embedded libraries and host tools that seamlessly integrate with Analog Devices' Visual DSP++ development tool chain. Trident's modular design accommodates multiprocessor synchronization for threads on different processors, large-scale messaging capabilities with point-to-point and broadcast APIs, and high-speed data transfers.
The underlying inter-process communication supporting each module occurs across high-performance LVDS link ports that are either directly connected or configured via BittWare's FPGA ATLANTiS framework. Optimized for low-latency and high-throughput, Trident's performance will not decrease even as the number of processors increases. Coupled with the company's FPGA and DSP devices, Trident offers a strong development environment for large-scale defense/aerospace, high-end instrumentation, life sciences, and communications applications.
The Trident multiprocessor operating environment is available now.
Trident costs $10,000 per project for a maximum of three development seats. It is royalty and run-time free when used on BittWare hardware. A 30-day trial version is available.
