Development Platform Rockets 3G Base Stations

Allowing users to jumpstart software programming and facilitate early prototyping, the company has achieved full interoperability between its pre-processing switch (PPS) and the highest performance DSPs from Texas Instruments. The result of this collaboration is a robust 3G base station development platform that narrows time to market. The AMC70K2000 development platform integrates the PPS with four fabric-connected DSPs (TMS320C6455/6482) on an advanced mezzanine card (AMC). The AMC includes a 3-Gb Ethernet backplane, one I/O line, up to 128 MB of DDR2 DRAM per DSP, flash memory, I2C interface, JTAG for a system boot master, MMC control for IPMI with additional applications, and a local-power option for stand-alone operation. An expansion port accepts a daughter card supporting other Serial RapidIO endpoints. Single-unit price for the platform is $5,995. INTEGRATED DEVICE TECHNOLOGY INC., Santa Clara, CA.
