Santa Clara, California, DesignCon 2000, February 1, 2000 - BOPS, Inc., a leading programmable DSP core provider, announces its Technology Evaluation License program. The program is designed to aid customers with the evaluation of BOPS' high-performance, scalable and reusable DSP cores for high-volume SOC applications.
BOPS' Technology Evaluation License program provides OEMs with the hardware and software tools and engineering support needed to quickly and efficiently complete feasibility studies using BOPS DSP core family.
"Our customers require a quick time to market. On their critical path is the detailed technical evaluation of our ManArray BOPS DSP core family for use in their application. We have tailored the program to quickly and efficiently answer the key critical questions that customer have for their high-volume SOC designs: performance, die size, power consumption and software design," stated Rick Kepple, BOPS' VP of Sales and Marketing.
"The BOPS product line allows customers more choices when they evaluate programmable DSP intellectual property. Generally, most customers evaluating DSP cores or discrete components only have one price/performance choice per instruction set, whereas BOPS customers have a range of instruction-set compatible cores to choose from starting from 64 milli-watts of power consumption to over 100 BOPS of performance," added Kepple.
