Analog Devices Inc. ADSP-SC57x Multicore Processors

Analog Devices Inc. ADSP-SC57x Multicore Processors deliver greater than 6 giga-floating-point operations per second using two enhanced SHARC+ cores. The processors combine ADI's SHARC technology with ARM® Cortex-A5 system control capability. This provides a high performance, low cost solution for complex applications demanding the latest advanced algorithms, interface technology, security and scalability. With more than 2MBytes of on-chip memory, the system cost can be optimized with two package options including the choice to use external memory.

The processors consume less than 2 watts at Automotive temperatures, and deliver the advantage of industry leading digital signal processing performance. Target applications include automotive premium audio, consumer, pro-audio and high-end industrial systems.
