Multicore digital signal processors are starting to find increasing acceptance in various market segments, including test and measurement, mission critical, industrial automation, medical and high-end imaging equipment, and high-performance computing. As processing demands of these applications continue to increase, Texas Instruments has responded with a new generation of scalable, high-performance TMS320C66x multicore DSPs. The C66x devices are based on TI’s KeyStone architecture which is the platform for true multicore innovation by providing full processing capability to every core in a multicore device. TI’s C66x high performance DSPs include pin-compatible and scalable devices available in one, two, four and eight-core configurations.
