TI Samples Low-Cost, DSP-based Digital Media Processors

Texas Instruments is now sampling four new digital signal processor (DSP)-based digital media processors priced as low as $9.95. The four new processors, which are the first DSP-only devices for DaVinci technology, provide greater processing power at a lower price point. Target applications include automotive vision, video security and video telephony.

TI said Moore's Law combined with improvements to the DSP core and the addition of a video processing subsystem (VPSS), allow the new processors to offer improved video performance of up to H.264 video encode at D1 resolution and a 50 percent cost reduction over TI's previous DSP digital media processors. All four processors operate between 300 and 600 MHz.
