Floating-point DSP Leads in Performance

For single- and multiple processor applications, SHARC also provides upward compatibility

The ADSP-21060 and ADSP-21062 are the industry's first DSPs in the class of Super Harvard ARchitecture Computer(SHARCTM). They integrate on a single chip: the industry's fastest general-purpose floating-point core, based on the ADSP-21020 (Analog Dialogue 25-2, 1991); a dual-ported 4- or 2-megabit SRAM; wide-bandwidth communication ports; and a sophiscticated DMA (direct memory-access) controller—plus a crossbar switch to interconnect them.
