  • Provides high performance Static Superscalar DSP operations, optimized for telecommunications infrastructure and other large, demanding multiprocessor DSP applications
  • Performs exceptionally well on DSP algorithm and I/O benchmarks (see benchmarks in Table 1 and Table 2 in the data sheet)
  • Supports low overhead DMA transfers between internal memory, external memory, memory-mapped peripherals, link ports, other DSPs (multiprocessor), and host processors
  • Eases DSP programming through extremely flexible instruction set and high-level language-friendly DSP architecture
  • Enables scalable multiprocessing systems with low communications overhead

Product Details

The ADSP-TS101S TigerSHARC® processor is an ultrahigh performance, Static Superscalar processor optimized for large signal processing tasks and communications infrastructure. The DSP combines very wide memory widths with dual computation blocks—supporting 32- and 40-bit floating-point and 8-, 16-, 32-, and 64-bit fixed-point processing—to set a new standard of performance for digital signal processors. The TigerSHARC processor’s Static Superscalar architecture lets the processor execute up to four instructions each cycle, performing 24 fixed-point (16-bit) operations or six floating-point operations.

Three independent 128-bit-wide internal data buses, each connecting to one of the three 2M bit memory banks, enable quad word data, instruction, and I/O accesses and provide 14.4G bytes per second of internal memory bandwidth. Operating at 300 MHz, the ADSP-TS101S processor’s core has a 3.3 ns instruction cycle time. Using its single-instruction, multiple-data (SIMD) features, the ADSP-TS101S can perform 2.4 billion 40-bit MACs or 600 million 80-bit MACs per second. Table 1 and Table 2 in the data sheet show the DSP’s performance benchmarks.
