MIC-8901 ATCA® DSP Blade with 20 TMS320TCI6608 DSPs

With its 20 onboard TMS320TCI6608 DSPs at 1.0GHz core frequency, the DSPA-8901 provides 160 cores of processing power to reach the performance density needed to build the highest capacity media gateways. The DSPA-8901 reduces overall system power dissipation and cost, and frees up valuable slots in gateway elements for additional subscriber capacity and throughput. The DSPA-8901 includes a high-performance Freescale QorIQ P2020 processor. A Broadcom BCM56321 switch terminates the 10 GbE fabric connections and distributes traffic to the 20 DSPs. The DSPA-8901 offers unrivalled packet and media processing capabilities. For increased demand in high-end video conferencing, broadcasting and tele-presence, the DSPA-8901 ATCA blade offers unmatched image processing performance for compression and decompression, image analysis, filtering and format conversion.
