Texas Instruments Inc. has announced the TMS320C6727B, a high-performing floating-point DSP running at 350MHz. This DSP is suitable for performance-hungry applications for which a speed increase will impact OEMs' ability to create advanced product offerings, including audio conferencing, multichannel audio systems, audio broadcast biometric and industrial solutions. The C6727B DSP is also available at speeds of 275MHz and 300MHz, giving developers the flexibility to seamlessly migrate to 350MHz without changing the hardware on their design.

Additionally, since the C6727 DSP is fully code-compatible with TI's scaleable family of floating-point DSPsthe TMS320C6720, TMS320C6722B and MS320C6726Bdevelopers can easily migrate to the C6727B DSP, taking advantage of the boosted performance without requiring any additional investment in hardware or software engineering, saving development cost and time.

For extended flexibility and expansion, the C6727B has a 32bit EMIF that provides a 33-percent increase in SDRAM speed, from 100MHz to 133MHz. This allows the DSP to handle more channels of audio, allowing developers to meet the processing requirements in their tailored audio flagship applications, such as professional audio mixer and active noise-cancellation systems. The device also features the dMAX DMA engine that improves system performance by performing complex 1-D, 2-D and 3-D memory transfers, allowing the DSP to be dedicated to signal processing tasks.

The C6727B DSP is available at 275 MHz, 300 MHz and 350 MHz and is priced at $16.75, $19.95 and $25.95 respectively. The PADK (TMDXPDK6727) also is available at $1995.
