FPGA-based co-processing is 15X faster than traditional processor/DSP systems. Conventional system design methods face stiff challenges to meet the requirements of today’s ultra-high performance applications. No single architecture has offered the most efficient solution for every aspect of today’s complex applications, so a flexible, customizable platform is imperative. The inherent parallel nature and optimized DSP blocks in an FPGA enable intelligent “co-processing” execution of massive signal processing computations, accelerating your system to optimally meet your most demanding performance requirements.
The TI OMAP/Spartan-6 FPGA Co-Processing Development Kit is a sophisticated platform that delivers breakthrough system performance by integrating and optimizing the key strengths of high performance FPGAs, system control processing, and digital signal processing, all within one single environment. While an ARM9 CPU provides run control and executes Real Time Operating Systems like embedded Linux, and a C674X DSP can be dedicated to specific signal processing algorithms, a flexible Spartan-6 FPGA can be focused on the performance bottlenecks to accelerate datapath applications.
