TI launches retimers


TI has introduced three retimers which enable an extended signal range over long traces, connectors and cables without degradation of signal integrity. These devices expand TI’s high-performance retimer portfolio, and support flexible, cost-optimized system design, enabling designers to speed their products to market while maintaining optimal performance. The retimers improve signal quality by removing jitter and compensating loss for signals ...

Video surveillance gets H.264 encoding


Exar has introduced a digital video recorder on a PCI Express card for professional video surveillance applications. The VRC7016XE card features two Exar S7110 software configurable processors and performs H.264 encoding on 16 channels of up to 960H NTSC/PAL video at full resolution and frame rate. With 960H video, surveillance systems can have a wider horizontal field-of-view (FOV) than what ...

ADI selects Cortex-M4 and model-based design for motor control

ADSP-CM40x pr shot no title

Analog Devices has combined an ARM Cortex-M4 processor and a model-based design platform to address the needs of closed loop motor and solar photo-voltaic (PV) inverter control. The floating-point Cortex-M4 processor core runs at 240MHz and ADI has also integrated a dual 16-bit A/D converter with up to 14 bits of accuracy and 380ns conversion speed. ADI’s previous motor controller platform was based on ...

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 ...
