TI bares FPGA alternative

TI further claims that designers can develop three times faster than with FPGAs or with competing solutions. With the 66AK2L06 SoC, developers have the ability to change DFE configurations on the fly after deployment through software, while storing multiple configurations in DDR or flash memory with the ability to switch dynamically. The integration of the DFE and JESD204B interface allows users to change filters to make optimisations through software programmability in days rather than weeks as required today with an FPGA.

JESD204B is a highly efficient, industry-standard serial communications link that simplifies the digital data interface between data converters and processors in high-speed applications, such as test and measurement, medical, defence and avionics. In addition to the 66AK2L06 SoC, TI's JESD204B portfolio includes high-speed ADCs and DACs, and clocking products.

Building on the KeyStone-based MCSDK and RFSDK, the 66AK2L06 SoC enables developers to accelerate time to market by providing an out-of-the-box solution. TI's development tools and runtime software support make migration and development for the multi-core ARM platform simpler than ever. The MCSDK provides support for open source Linux and TI's SYS/BIOS operating system for ARM cores. Evaluation modules (EVMs) will be available with the MCSDK and RFSDK with preloaded example projects. The MCSDK and RFSDK are shipped together with an XEVMK2LX EVM. TI Designs enable customers currently using an FPGA to connect data converters to signal processors to reduce cost with a direct JESD204B interconnection and the broad ecosystem offers additional resources that aid customers with hardware, software and new feature development needs.
