MONTREAL -- Octasic Inc., a leading innovator of media processing and wireless solutions, today announced its second generation Opus2 DSP core, a high-performance, ultra-low power, asynchronous DSP architecture optimized for baseband processing and multimedia transcoding. To facilitate customer evaluation of the core, Octasic is making available an integrated development environment with support for multi-standard cellular infrastructure applications.

The Opus2 core, based on Octasic’s unique asynchronous Opus DSP architecture, offers the lowest power consumption available in a fully programmable, high-performance DSP. Opus2 is code compatible with the currently shipping Opus1 core. Opus1, the DSP processor used in Octasic’s Vocallo devices, is widely deployed as a media processor in voice and video media gateways for wireline and wireless, session border controllers (SBCs), IPBXs, and as a baseband processor in multi-carrier GSM basestations.

Incorporating the experience gained from extensive application development on Opus1 and improvements to the asynchronous design, Octasic has doubled the platform’s performance, while improving its power efficiency. For example, a single device based on Opus2 can provide all the necessary processing for a complete 64 user HSPA+/LTE basestation while consuming less than 2.5W.

“For all our customers – whether they are developing media gateway, or wireless basestations – improving both power and performance has become their top priority,” said Robert Blake, CEO of Octasic. “Opus2 further expands our leadership in developing platforms that provide designers with both the flexibility and scalability to maximize their investment in multi-standard wireless communications.”
