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.
