300 MHz TigerSHARC Processor with 6 Mbit on-chip SRAM

Manufactured by:

Product Details

The ADSP-TS101S is the first member of the TigerSHARC Processor family. Targeted at numerous signal processing applications that rely on multiple processors working together to execute computationally-intensive real-time functions, ADI’s TigerSHARC processor is well-suited to video and communication markets, including the 3G cellular and broadband wireless base stations, as well as defense, medical imaging, industrial instrumentation. The ADSP-TS101S features a static superscaler architecture which combines RISC, VLIW and standard DSP functionality. Native support of fixed and floating point data types, coupled with the leading edge multiprocessing capabilities allows the TigerSHARC processor to offer unrivaled DSP performance. At a 300 MHz clock rate, the ADSP-TS101S offers the industry’s highest 16-bit fixed-point performance and a 32-bit floating 1024-point complex FFT time of 32.5 microseconds.

ADSP-TS101S Performance:

  • High performance 300 MHz, 3.3 ns instruction rate DSP core
  • Executes eight 16-bit MACs with 40-bit accumulation or two 32-bit MACs with 80-bit accumulation per cycle
  • Executes six single-precision floating point or twenty four 16-bit fixed point operations per cycle (1800 MFLOPS or 7.2 GOPS performance)
  • 8-cycle instruction pipeline; 3-cycle fetch pipe and 5-cycle execution pipe
  • Parallelism allows the execution of up to four 32-bit instructions per cycle
  • The ADSP-TS101S is available in both 19mm X 19mm and 27mm X 27mm inexpensive, plastic ball-grid array packages. The TigerSHARC is available for general purpose sampling today.

    EMULATOR-USB & HP USB ICE Circuit Diagram

    Product Details

    Analog Devices’ cost-effective Universal Serial Bus (USB)-based emulator and High performance (HP) Universal Serial Bus (USB)-based emulator each provide an easy, portable, non-intrusive, target-based debugging solution for Analog Devices JTAG processors and DSPs. These powerful USB-based emulators perform a wide range of emulation functions, including single-step and full speed execution with pre-defined breakpoints, and viewing and/or altering of register and memory contents. With the ability to automatically detect and support multiple I/O voltages, the USB and HP USB emulators enable users to communicate with all of the Analog Devices JTAG processors and DSPs using either a full speed USB 1.1 or high speed USB 2.0 port on the host PC. Applications and data can easily and rapidly be tested and transferred between the emulators and the separately available VisualDSP++ development and debugging environment(sold separately).

    The plug-and-play architecture of USB allows the emulators to be automatically detected and configured by the host operating system. It can also be connected to and disconnected from the host without opening the PC or turning off the power to the PC. A 3-meter cable is included to connect the emulators to the host PC, thus providing abundant accessibility to hard to reach targets.

    The HP USB-based emulator also supports the Background Telemetry Channel (BTC), a non-intrusive method for exchanging data between the host and target application without affecting the target system's real-time characteristics.

    EVAL-TS201S-EZKIT Circuit Diagram

    Product Details

    The ADSP-TS201S EZ-KIT Lite provides developers with a cost-effective method for initial evaluation of the ADSP-TS201S TigerSHARC® Processor and its multiprocessing capabilities. This EZ-KIT Lite includes two ADSP-TS201S processors on a desktop evaluation board along with fundamental debugging software to facilitate architecture evaluations via a USB-based PC-hosted tool set. With this EZ-KIT Lite, users can learn more about ADI’s ADSP-TS201S hardware and software development environments and quickly prototype applications. The ADSP-TS201S EZ-KIT Lite provides an evaluation suite of the VisualDSP++ development and debugging environment with the C/C++ compiler, assembler, and linker. Via the USB interface, VisualDSP++ can communicate with the included software debug agent enabling users to perform standard debugging functions (such as read and write memory, read and write registers, load and execute executables, set and clear breakpoints, and single-step assembly, C, and C++ source code) and multiprocessor functions (such as synchronous step, synchronous run, and synchronous halt). The evaluation versions of the included software tools have limited use with the EZ-KIT Lite.

    The EZ-KIT Lite’s default EPROM boot mode enables the board to be used as a standalone unit without the requirement for a PC-host. If desired, the board can boot from an optional external host port interface connector, link port or “No Boot” based on jumper selections. The EZ-KIT Lite also includes a FLASH utility that can be used to download user specific boot code to the on-board FLASH memory using the USB interface
