C6A8168 Integra™ Peripherals

The C6A8168 is the industry's highest-speed DSP plus ARM processor with a 1.5 GHz floating. It also has fixed point 674x DSP and a 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex-A8. The integrated DSP plus ARM architecture lowers system cost by reducing board space and allowing unified external memory. The C6A8168 processor is highly integrated with a large set of network connectivity and peripheral options. The device sustains high-throughput and low latency to external memory with 256 Kilobyte L2 caches and two 32-bit DDR3 interfaces. The processor supports three high-quality displays at up to 1920 by 1280 resolution. Integrated 3D graphics and video enhancement processing deliver a superior user experience. Other peripherals include 2-lane PCIe, 2 USB ports, 2 SATA interfaces, 2 Gigabit Ethernet MACs, and 2 video capture ports. The processor delivers unprecedented performance for applications requiring high-precision signal processing Examples include avionics, medical equipment such as ultrasound systems, test and measurement with RF signal analysis and visual inspection.
