Combining the ease-of-use and precision of floating-point programming with the connectivity and lower-cost options of fixed-point devices, Texas Instruments Inc. announced the availability of the TMS320C6743 DSP.

Based on the TMS320C674x core, the new low-power device couples the precision and dynamic range of TI's floating-point TMS320C67x core with the system performance of its fixed-point TMS320C64x+ core.

Additionally, the C6743 is object-code compatible with all TMS320C6000 devices and integrates multiple connectivity options, such as an Ethernet MAC and multimedia card/secure digital (MMC/SD) peripherals.

Together, this makes the DSP ideal for applications including audio conferencing, power protection systems, industrial monitoring, and test and measurement products such as oscilloscopes.

Other key features include: scalable and pin-to-pin compatible with C674x and TI's OMAP-L137 low-power devices; efficient EDMA 3.0 engine; 192Kbytes of on-chip memory; low power consumption with 490mW total power and 60mW in standby mode.
