To fulfill the needs of next-generation sound experiences powered by DSP technology, Texas Instruments unveiled the TMS320C6727B, a 350MHz floating-point DSP. The device is tuned for performance-hungry applications. In such cases, significant speed increases will lead to the creation of advanced product offerings, including high-quality audio conferencing, multichannel audio systems, and audio broadcast biometric and industrial solutions.
TI’s floating-point DSP portfolio, including the C6727B DSP, is based on the TMS320C67x+ DSP generation-based core. Running at 350MHz, the C6727B DSP arms designers with a list of multi-speed offerings of its floating-point DSP platform. The C6727B is also available at speeds of 275MHz and 300 MHz, giving developers the flexibility to seamlessly migrate to 350MHz without changing design hardware.
Also, the C6727 DSP is codecompatible with TI’s scalable family of floating-point DSPs. Therefore, developers can easily migrate to the C6727B DSP, taking immediate advantage of the greater performance without requiring any additional investment in hardware or software.
Customers can leverage TI’s floating-point DSP portfolio to select a DSP architecture to meet their precise needs for a myriad of products. For extended flexibility and expansion, the C6727B features a 32bit external memory interface (EMIF) that pushes SDRAM speed from 100MHz to 133MHz. As a result, the DSP can handle significantly more channels of audio so that developers can meet the processing requirements in their tailored audio flagship applications, such as audio mixers and active noise-cancellation systems. The device also features the dMAX DMA engine.
