DSP Processing Platforms

Advantech designs both standard and fully customized DSP-based boards in multiple form factors.These include open standard AdvancedTCA, AdvancedMC and PCI Express cards, as well as several proprietary form factors. By re-using multimedia processing DSP technologies across multiple form factors, OEMs benefit from wider product choice, enabling integration into the system enclosures which best suit the end-application’s needs.

Advantech enables the deployment of innovative and integrative video system infrastructures, including video acquisition, video encoding, video processing and video distribution. Our broad DSP product portfolio and custom design expertise gives OEMs more flexibility to adapt to nearly any size, power consumption, and/or performance constraints, scaling from very small form factor boards to highly scalable ATCA systems.

Advantech’s multi-core DSP-based products address a number of broad markets including telecommunication infrastructures (wireless baseband processing and voice codec), video infrastructures (video transcoding, translating, broadcasting, content creation, cinema projection, video conferencing), video surveillance, medical imaging (digital ultrasound, MRI, X-Ray), test & automation, mission critical, and high-performance computing. Software support for the boards is available from TI, Advantech, and selected members of Advantech’s Ecosystem Alliance.
