Quebec City, Quebec Canada – Lyrtech Signal Processing has announced the SignalMaster Quad Virtex-4, an enhanced version of its SignalMaster Quad Virtex-II.
Like its predecessor, the SignalMaster Quad Virtex-4 is designed to aid development and testing of DSP algorithms.
The SignalMaster Quad Virtex-4 includes two Xilinx Virtex-4 LX FPGAs as well as four Texas Instruments (TI) TMS320C6416 DSPs. Customers can order the board with either 720 MHz or 1 GHz versions of the DSPs. In addition to the processors, the board provides 128 MB of SDRAM per DSP and 128 MB of DDR SDRAM per FPGA.
The board also includes two LYRIO+ interfaces that allow connection to expansion modules including:
- High-speed multichannel ADC/DAC modules, such as the ADACMaster III, VHS-ADC Virtex-4, and VHS-DAC Virtex-4.
- The DRC Virtex-4, a RapidCHANNEL/FPDP expansion module with one TX and one RX RapidCHANNEL ports capable of 1 GBps (8 bits) and two configurable RX/TX FPDP-I, 400-MBps ports.
- The Audio/Video I/O module (AVA) with a 16-bit NTSC/PAL video encoder/decoder and a 16-bit, 48-kHz stereo audio I/O.
The board is backed by a software development kit that allows developers to program the SignalMaster Quad Virtex-4 board directly from MATLAB and Simulink.
