Sensor Processing Engine Launches For Mission Critical Applications

MegaChips’ eDSP embarks as a low-power, high-performance sensor processing platform that performs high-end arithmetic processing in real time at a fraction of the power compared to current microcontroller-based designs. The eDSP integrates a 32-bit programmable DSP core, 256K RAM for instruction, 256K RAM for data, and a multitude of interfaces. It claims to deliver four times higher performance with 98% less power than the ARM Cortex-M4F, and can execute 2.5 times faster than the Cortex M4 based designs complex mathematical algorithms such as Kalman filters, Matrix, and FFT calculations, typical benchmarks for the sensor fusion space, while providing a higher level of programmability and customization. The DSP core includes a three-way Very Long Instruction Word (VLIW) and a four-way floating point Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD). Furthermore, it performs multi-way branching and conditional execution allowing programmers a fine grain control on concurrent instructions execution. The eDSP is available now in a 3.5 mm x 3.5 mm FBGA-49 package with an operating temperature range of -40° to +85°C. For more information, visit
