Multi-processing on SHARCs

A multi-processing octal SHARC VME board from Loughborough Sound Images is said to offer a route to deterministic real time DSP, with 960MFLOPS and very fast data transfers between processors and peripherals. Dubbed DBV68, its performance is delivered by eight 40MHz ADSP-2106x SHARCs. A board controller decouples the SHARC clusters from the VMEbus and the […]

A multi-processing octal SHARC VME board from Loughborough Sound Images is said to offer a route to deterministic real time DSP, with 960MFLOPS and very fast data transfers between processors and peripherals.

Dubbed DBV68, its performance is delivered by eight 40MHz ADSP-2106x SHARCs. A board controller decouples the SHARC clusters from the VMEbus and the host, freeing them for real time tasks. There’s also software support in the form of IXZ tools and C-callable libraries.
