BittWare, Inc., the leading supplier of hybrid (DSP and FPGA) board-level solutions based on Altera's FPGAs and analogue devices' TigerSHARC technology, has released Trident multiprocessor operating environment.
Supporting distributed multiprocessor application development on analogue devices TigerSHARC processors, Trident provides system designers a complete operating environment to code, debug, and optimise applications on multiprocessor, multi-board and multi-system platforms.
Trident’s efficient distributed framework optimised for low-latency and high-throughput can support up to 65,000 processors.
A product of Embedded Logic solutions , Trident consists of a suite of embedded libraries and host tools that seamlessly integrate with analogue devices visual DSP++ development tool-chain.
Tridents modular design supports multiprocessor synchronisation for threads on different processors, large-scale messaging capabilities with point-to-point and broadcast APIs and high-speed data transfers.
The underlying inter-process communication supporting each Trident module occurs across high-performance LVDS link ports either directly connected or configured via BittWares FPGA ATLANTiS framework.
Optimised for low-latency and high-throughput, Trident's performance will not decrease even as the number of processors increases.
Trident, coupled with BittWare's FPGA and DSP product families, provides a development environment for large-scale defence/aerospace, high end instrumentation, life sciences and communications applications.
