Earlier this week, in conjunction with the DesignWest & Multicore Developer’s Conference in San Jose, we announced three new devices based on our KeyStone multicore architecture. The C6654, C6655 and C6657 DSPs offer real-time high performance at lower power levels and in a smaller form factor than previous KeyStone devices -- and are targeted at high performance and portable applications in markets such as mission critical, industrial automation, embedded vision, imaging, medical and audio infrastructure.
Our new C665x DSPs consist of three fully pin compatible low-cost, power optimized solutions for developers migrating from single core to multicore. The C6657 features two 1.25-GHz DSP cores, delivering up to 80 GMACs and 40 GFLOPs, while the C6655 and C6654 single core solutions deliver up to 40 GMACs and 20 GLOPS and 27.2 GMACs and 13.6 GLOPS. Under normal operating conditions, the C6657, C6655 and C6654 power numbers are at 3.5W, 2.5W and 2W, respectively.
Best of all, we’re offering another easy-to-use, low cost evaluation module (EVM) for the new devices. The TMDSEVM6657 sells for $349 and includes a free Multicore Software Development Kit (MCSDK), our powerful Code Composer Studio™ (CCS) integrated development environment (IDE), and a suite of application/demo codes to allow programmers to quickly come up to speed on the new platform.
To learn more about these devices you can download our latest product bulletin or white paper, or watch an overview video or one of our new Ask the Expert videos. You can also visit our multicore resource site at www.ti.com/multicore for additional product information.
