Combining the ease-of-use and precision of floating-point programming with the connectivity and lower-cost options of fixed-point devices, Texas Instruments has announced the availability of the TMS320C6743 digital signal processor (DSP). Based on the TMS320C674x core, the new low-power DSP couples the high precision and wide dynamic range of TI’s floating-point TMS320C67x+ core with the higher system performance of TI’s fixed-point TMS320C64x+ core.

Additionally, the C6743 is object code compatible with all TMS320C6000 devices so developers can easily design a broad range of energy-efficient products by leveraging existing software code. As the industry’s lowest-cost networked DSP, it integrates multiple connectivity options, such as an Ethernet MAC (EMAC) and multimedia card/secure digital (MMC/SD) peripherals. This makes the DSP ideal for applications including audio conferencing, power protection systems, industrial monitoring and test and measurement products, such as oscilloscopes.
