March 30, 2009 - Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) today said its embedded processor software toolkit developed for medical diagnostic ultrasound manufacturers is now available.
The first in a family of products, TI's toolkit aims to help manufacturers quickly and easily develop ultrasound applications on the improved processing power of TI's C64x+(TM) DSP platforms, enabling clinics and practitioners to deliver faster, more accurate results to their patients.
TI's new Embedded Processor Software Toolkit (STK) for medical diagnostic ultrasound leverages the performance and power consumption of TI's C64x+ architecture to shorten the development time of an ultrasound system by providing optimized implementations of commonly used processing blocks. TI is also offering the TMS320C6455 DSP Starter Kit (DSK) for medical imaging, a low-cost development platform which provides manufacturers with an easy-to-use solution for evaluating and harnessing the power of highly programmable DSP algorithms, affording a head start in medical imaging product development time, according to the company.
