enhanced core family of digital signal processors

Tuesday, 17 October, 2000

Taking the next step in the evolution of its DSP56800 core, Motorola Inc. today announced the enhanced DSP56800E core family of digital signal processors (DSPs).

Design engineers seeking the performance of a digital signal processor with the control functions of a microcontroller (MCU) can expect to have additional options for extremely cost-effective, single chip solutions featuring low-power consumption and up to five times the performance of the existing core. The DSP56800E is designed to meet the needs of industrial, motor control and automotive applications, as well as the converging telecommunications and data communications markets.

Motorola today also previews two new products based on the new 56800E core, the DSP56853 and the DSP56854. Both are well suited for low-end Internet appliance applications and low-end client applications such as telephony, portable devices, Internet audio and point of sale systems.

Many DSP applications have used both a DSP and microcontroller, relying on the DSP for computational performance and the microcontroller for functionality. The use of extra chips can lead to added material costs for the final product, so combining the functions of the separate chips in one becomes quite attractive in terms of cost-efficiency and development time.
