PCI-Based Board Supports Four DSP Chips

March 1, 1999

Supporting single-board configurations with up to 4 GFLOPS or 6400 MIPS of computational resource, the HEPC8 is a PCI-based board that supports any combination of up to four TMS320C6000 DSP processors, data-acquisition interfaces, and other I/O capabilities using a single-board implementation of the HEART communication system. HEART is a high-bandwidth communication system that features a HERON-based modular processor, data acquisition and I/O capabilities. It allows data to be transferred between HERON modules at up to 400 MB/s per connection, deterministically, and at very low latency. HERON modules are about the size of a credit card and can use a processor, memory, data acquisition or I/O interface in any combination.
