The MSC8144 processor is the third generation of our high-performance multicore DSP devices that target wireline and wireless infrastructure applications. It builds on the success of previous multicore DSPs and is designed to bolster the rapidly expanding voice/video/data triple-play services in this space. This multicore DSP delivers high levels of performance and integration, combining four fully-programmable StarCore® DSP cores, each running at up to 1 GHz with an architecture highly optimized for voice, fax, video and data compression processing.
An internal QUICC Engine® dual-RISC packet-processor supports multiple networking protocols to guarantee reliable data transport over packet networks while significantly offloading such processing from the DSP cores.
The MSC8144 embeds a large internal memory and supports a variety of advanced interface types, including high-speed Ethernet and UTOPIA for network communications, DDR controller for high-speed, industry-standard memory interface, multi-channel TDM interfaces for connectivity to the PSTN networks, and Serial RapidIO® and PCI interfaces for connectivity to other devices mounted on the same rack or circuit board.
As a highly flexible, fully programmable, and powerful multimedia DSP, the MSC8144 offers tremendous processing power while maintaining a competitive price and power per channel.
