Critical Link was approached by a customer who needed to develop a spread spectrum radio transceiver for several applications. The end result of this project was a prototype system that has been used as a proof-of-concept for several applications. The combination of TI’s OMAP-L138 DSP+ARM processor and the FPGA allows for a cost-effective solution with outstanding performance. The uPP interface allows simple FPGA interfacing and boasts significant performance advantages over using other available interfaces on the DSP.
