MONTREAL -- Octasic Inc., a leading innovator of media processing and wireless solutions, today announced that it has developed the industry’s most power-efficient family of DSP solutions for media gateways, high-definition (HD) video and wireless systems.

The OCT2200 series of devices uses the highly efficient Opus DSP core architecture to enable system designers to achieve both very low power consumption and the highest levels of performance in the same device. Competitive devices are forced to choose between either low power or high performance. Octasic offers both simultaneously in a completely software programmable solution. Devices based on the second generation of the Opus DSP core (Opus2) can deliver over 36 GMACs with less than 55 mW of power consumption per GMAC, under worst case process, voltage, and temperature (PVT) conditions.

The OCT2200 series brings all the advantages of asynchronous circuits to a wide range of high-performance DSP applications. Incorporating up to 24 Opus2 DSP cores with a rich set of I/O interfaces and an optional ARM core provides an ideal platform for a broad range of applications. The first two members of the OCT2200 family are the OCT2224M for media processing and the OCT2224W for wireless baseband applications (see related releases). Targeted media applications include: wireline and wireless media gateways; IP PBXs; audio/video transcoding gateways; High-Definition (HD) video conferencing and streaming; video surveillance Digital Video Recorders (DVRs), and medical imaging. Targeted wireless applications include base-station products with single chip femtocell and picocell solutions, and multi-chip macrocells.

“Our vision is to become the leading supplier of high-performance DSP devices with the lowest power footprint,” said Robert Blake, Octasic’s CEO. “Our patent-pending Opus technology enables us to offer customers a programmable DSP platform with both performance and ultra low power consumption in the same device. No other DSP vendor has this sustainable technology advantage.”
