Solutions Ltd introduces IgnitionProTM,
prototyping module containing a Texas Instruments
TMS320DM6446 dual core microprocessor-DSP processor
designed for video and audio applications. The module sits
on a motherboard that holds the peripheral connectors and
power supply, it is intended that the motherboard would
change depending on application.
module contains a TMS320DM6446 ARM9/C64x dual processor,
with the Arm running at 297Mhz and the DSP side at 600Mhz.
There is also 32M x 32 bit DDR2 memory, 256Mbit Nand
flash, MSP430 microcontroller, 256K eeprom and an Altera
EPM240GT100 CPLD. The module is 236mm x 105mm in size.
motherboard contains the power supply circuitry that is
required to power up the module along with a serial port,USB,
Ethernet port, video in/out (composite and component),
audio in/out, infra-red, compact flash connector and a
ships with full schematics of the motherboard, Linux
2.6.10 kernel running from flash, evaluation xDM audio and
video codecs in a DSP server and a DVR example application
with source code.
The module also contains an expansion connector for future
interface support such as digital video.
