Long Beach, Calif. - Pentek Inc. introduced an octal DSP board based on the Texas Instruments TMS320C6203 DSP. The 6U VME COTS board features both a PMC (PCI Mezzanine Card) and VIM (Velocity Interface Mezzanine) interface. The VIM mezzanine eliminates data flow bottlenecks by delivering 1,200 Mbytes/sec of I/O data directly to the processors to take maximum advantage of the 19,200 MIPS peak processing power of the eight C6203 DSPs.

Model 4293 is supported by a software development environment including Pentek's ReadyFlow Board Support Libraries and SwiftNet plug-in to TI's Code Composer Studio Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Other third-party and Pentek software development tools are available for a variety of workstations and embedded processor platforms running Windows 98/2000/NT, Linux, Solaris, and VxWorks.

SBS Technologies introduced CT8, a high-performance 6U CompactPCI (CPCI) single board computer supporting full hot swap capability. It supports system and non-system slot functionality and is configured with an integrated Mobile Intel Pentium III Processor-M (800MHz and higher), which offers low power consumption and eliminates the need for on-board ventilation.

Adhering to the PICMG 2.16 specification, the CT8 supports the 64-bit/66MHz CompactPCI bus and includes two on-board Gigabit Ethernet channels. A high level of functional integration (VGA/TFT, serial or parallel interfaces, hard disk or flash drive, CompactFlash, intelligent platform management interface (IPMI) controller, etc.) within a single slot gives users the freedom to use the PMC interface required by the application. The CT8 is also optionally available for the extended temperature range of -40°C to +50°C.
