Revolutionary, Customizable Solution Delivers Higher Performance, Power Savings and Faster Time to Market
SAN JOSE, California, Dec. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MegaChips today introduced the eDSP™, a low-power, high-performance sensor processing platform that performs high-end arithmetic processing in real time at a fraction of the power compared to the microcontroller-based solutions on the market today. It meets customer needs for the highest flexibility in hardware design with right-sized horsepower to run their most computationally challenging algorithms at high speeds with the lowest power available today.
"Today's out-of-the-box solutions lack the flexibility or the performance required by system engineers for their high-end specialized applications," said Michael Navid, VP of Business Development and Marketing at MegaChips. "We provide an alternative platform with the flexibility to choose from a wide variety of external sensors and the freedom to implement differentiated fusion algorithms using our comprehensive development tool chain and reference design packages, reducing time to market and cost."
eDSP integrates a 32-bit programmable DSP core, 256K RAM for instruction, 256K RAM for data and a multitude of interfaces. MegaChips' eDSP delivers four times higher performance with 98% less power than the ARM Cortex-M4F, and can execute 2.5 times faster than the Cortex M4-based designs complex mathematical algorithms such as Kalman filters, Matrix, and FFT calculations, typical benchmarks for the sensor fusion space, while providing a higher level of programmability and customization.
eDSP is available now in a compact 3.5mm X 3.5mm FBGA-49 package with an operating temperature range of -40° to +85°C. For more information, visit MegaChips at http://www.megachips.com/products/sensor-hub/index.htm.
