VoIP BlackFin DIMM—Enough Said

Arcturus Networks’ uCBF54x system is a somewhat large small-outline dual-inline memory module (SODIMM) based on a 533- MHz Analog Devices ADSP-BF548 BlackFin processor. Able to handle up to six voice channels, the processor targets Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) applications. The matching kit includes a host board plus the open-source uClinux and Arcturus Voice and Management Middleware, which includes a complete session initiation protocol (SIP) and real-time protocol (RTP) stack. Pricing for the module starts at $130. The kit costs $615 and is available from Digi- Key. Video and Gigabit Ethernet support will be available later in the year.
