Portable Design;Nov2005, Vol. 11 Issue 11, p42
The article describes Texas Instruments' DaVinci technology, an integrated platform of DSP-based processors, software, tools, and support tailored for original equipment manufacture digital video applications. Its components are designed to work interdependently for a range of digital video end equipment. The technology addresses the demand for real time video in application segments, including portable media, digital cameras, automotive infotainment, videoconferencing, video security, and IP set-top boxes. Built on the TMS320C6000 DSP platform, the DaVinci processors use the company's latest C64x+ DSP core plus DSP and ARM cores and memory configurations as well as peripherals and accelerators optimized for video- and audio-device implementation.
