BANGALORE, INDIA: Texas Instruments (TI) has launched TMS320C665x multicore digital signal processors(DSPs) which offers dense and scalable solution to deliver high system level power and cost efficiency. The new processors are targeted at applications such as session border controllers and IP PBX gateways. Developers can now meet gateway challenges through the new DSPs.


Challenges that can now be addressed by developers through the new DSPs include of matching voice coding techniques, processing tone and signaling messaging, distinguishing facsimile from voice, converting legacy circuit switched connections to IP and managing and reporting voice quality.

C665x DSPs by TI provide a balanced alternative that scales for voice processing, signaling and system control. TI's C665x multicore processors provide high scalability as well as a wide range of channel densities, making them an ideal solution for the enterprise environment.

The TMS320C6654 DSP at 850MHz supports up to 64 channels of G.729AB, while the TMS320C6655 DSP at 1GHz supports up to 128 channels of G.729AB. The TMS320C6657 DSP at 1.25GHz provides significant head room for applications requiring added density.

"Our newest multicore DSPs give gateway developers an all-encompassing solution that meets all of their specialized processing requirements. The C665x DSPs deliver the highest levels of performance at targeted channel density while maximizing power consumption. With our new KeyStone devices, we are addressing the specific requirements of enterprise gateway designs and providing developers what's required to be successful and a differentiator in this competitive market,'' said Ramesh Kumar, Business Manager, Multicore Processors, TI.
