DSP Sets Performance Benchmark

Described as the industry’s highest-performing DSP, the Storm-1 SP16HP delivers up to 112 GMACs (16-bit) or 448 GOPS (8-bit) and provides a C-programmable alternative to FPGA and multi-DSP designs in digital imaging, video, and wireless infrastructure applications. Operating at a clock frequency of 700 MHz, the software-programmable device specifies a power consumption of less than 0.1 mW per MMAC. It provides a single-core programming model, said to eliminate the pitfalls of having to partition, synchronize and load-balance threads across multiple cores. The RapiDev compiler directs data movement by allowing predictable and optimal application performance and removes the need for assembly coding and manual management of caches and DMA. Sampling now with production set for the third quarter, price for the SP16HP in a 31 mm x 31 mm FCBGA package is $149 each/10,000. STREAM PROCESSORS INC., Sunnyvale, CA. (408) 616-3338.
