PMC-Sierra Inc. and Stretch Inc. have announced the S56DVK10 development platform. The new system optimization platform combines Stretch's software-configurable processor with PMC-Sierra's 64bit microprocessor technology.

The S56DVK10 provides a flexible, comprehensive solution for compute-intensive applications where time-to-performance is critical, such as high-end computing, networking, imaging and multimedia. The performance of the S5610 development board was benchmarked with Linux version 2.4.21 running a simple IP forwarding stack algorithm. The companies were able to independently verify that the S56DVK10 platform was capable of forwarding 1.1 million Ethernet frames per second.

"Our collaboration with PMC-Sierra accelerated the availability of a platform that provides improved performance in compute-intensive applications," said Reynette Au, VP of marketing at Stretch. "Stretch is bringing to market a complete development platform with a unified programming environment that provides superior system performance and a fully integrated tool suite that allows designers flexibility to program in C/C++, improve time-to-performance, and reduce development and system cost for a multitude of applications."
