Fabless semiconductor house Stream Processors, Inc. (SPI) specializes in parallel-processing architectures for digital signal processors (DSPs), such as their new Storm-1(TM) SP16HP. The software-programmable DSP achieves 112 billion multiplications and accumulations per second (GMACs/s) for 16-b operation and 448 billion operations per second (GOPS) for 8-b operation. Designed as a cost-effective C-language-programmable alternative to multiple-DSP designs and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), the SP16HP employs a single-core programming model to avoid the synchronization issues associated with multiple-core processors. The new DSP is priced at $149 each in 10,000 quantities.
