Texas Instruments' Multicore DSP Integrated into Surf's AMC and PCIe Boards Drastically Reduces Time-to-Market for Video and Voice Telecom Applications

Surf's Multimedia Processing Platforms, Based on TI's TNETV3020 Platform, Provide Excellent Cost-Performance for Converged Telecom Applications

YOKNE'AM, Israel, Feb. 12 -- SURF Communication Solutions ("Surf"), a leading provider of high-capacity multimedia processing boards and chips for the telecommunication infrastructure field, today announced it is leveraging Texas Instruments' high performance TNETV3020six-core digital signal processor (DSP) to promote the development of open architecture, multimedia processing solutions for telecom applications. Surf has integrated TI's DSP into its advanced mezzanine card (AMC), PCI Express card, and chip- level solution to support the development of multimedia gateways and servers that deliver video, voice, fax and modem over mobile and wireline networks.

Surf's multimedia processing package enables simultaneous support for all types of media -- video, voice, fax and modem -- on a single DSP. TI's TNETV3020 DSP provides high performance with low power consumption and a small footprint. The combined solution offers impressive processing performance for video codecs, such as H.264, alongside a large amount of voice channel instances.

"The low power consumption, small footprint and exceptional processing performance of TI's TNETV3020 provide telecom equipment manufacturers with the highest performance/density ratio available," stated Ofer Talmor, Product Marketing Manager at Surf Communication Solutions. "This makes the TNETV3020 DSP on Surf's multimedia processing platforms the most optimized solution for development of voice and video telecom applications. The fact that customers can choose to use the TNETV3020 DSP-based solution within Surf's cards or as chip-level provides plenty of opportunities to build heavy duty media processing products using the best available building blocks."

Both the SurfRider/AMC(TM) mezzanine card and the SurfExpress/PCIe(TM) board feature a modular plug-in that carries up to four pairs of DSPs. The resulting eight multicore DSPs per board delivers unprecedented price performance, ideal for converged distribution of video and voice for a wide variety of telecom applications, including voice and video gateways, MMSC content adaptation engines, and multimedia servers.

"The advanced set of communication peripherals in the TNETV3020, like Telecom Serial Interface Ports (TSIP) and Gigabit Ethernet, along with the outstanding processing performance and low power consumption per channel, make it the ideal platform for TDM and IP-based systems," said John Smrstik, manager of TI's high density core networks group. "Coupled with Surf's ability to process video, voice, and data simultaneously, this combined solution will reduce time-to-market for OEMs building fixed and mobile media gateways, and transcoding applications."

The combined solution is currently available for select customers, and can be seen at the Surf stand 2.J42 at the Mobile World Congress, taking place from Feb. 11-14 in Barcelona.
