640GFLOPS card for image sensor processing
CommAgility’s AMC-4C6678 Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) DSP board has four TMS320C6678 fixed- and floating-point octal core DSPs from Texas Instruments running at 1.25GHz.
The total aggregated performance is 640GFLOPS and 1,280GMACS.
Intended for image sensor processing and stepper control, the AMC-4C6678 has I/O to support the 32 DSP cores. PCI Express and Gigabit Ethernet interfaces use on-board switches for maximum flexibility and access to all DSPs on the card.
A serial rapidIO (SRIO) link is directly connected to one DSP, shared using Hyperlink and then extends to the second DSP pair. 8Gbyte of DDR3 SDRAM is provided as standard, with 2Gbyte allocated to each DSP. 256Mbyte of flash memory is also provided, which can be used to store DSP boot code.
Available software includes full board support libraries and an IP stack with Telnet/TFTP for Ethernet-based board control and upgrade.
The new module is a compact full-size, single width PICMG AMC.0 R2.0 AMC, and is suitable for use in both ATCA carriers and MicroTCA chassis.
