The MAP-BSP family consists of several software programmable DSPs that target video-centric consumer broadband applications. The latest editions to the family are the MAP-BSP-15-350 and the MAP-BSP-15-400. These chips were designed to support more complex video processing for servers, professional video conferencing equipment, media gateway servers, and broadband head-end equipment. They are pin-compatible with all other chips in the MAP-BSP family. The family is based on a proprietary VLIW-SLMD architecture designed to unify the host processor with the video image processing capabilities, SDRAM and PCI interfaces, and a multimedia I/O system. Features include digital RAGB, which enables use of drives and digital display panels; PCI-compliant data port; partitioned, compiler-managed register sets; and task-optimized functional units. The 350 and 400 are sampling now.
