Eonic Solutions, based in Ulm, Germany, and Pretoria-based Parsec have announced the signature of a mutual VAR agreement, a first step in building a strategic relationship between the two companies.
While Eonic Solutions offers the Atlas high-end universal digital signal processing (DSP) board and system level products, Parsec has wide experience in delivering customer specific engineering services for the DSP market, covering from design to manufacturing.
"The Eonic DSP implementation philosophy is based on lowering the time to market with a scalable communication signal processing architecture (CSPA)," says Rynier Van der Watt, vice president of Business Development at Parsec. "A scalable, but generic system approach is ideal for today's COTS environment where every effort is made in reducing the development to deployment cycle to months rather than years."
"Eonic is looking forward to cooperate closely with Parsec, who is able to offer our customers the complementary design and engineering services needed to adapt our generic Atlas DSP architecture to a specific application. Our know-how and skill set is complementary and provides for both parties a winning combination," said Eric Verhulst, director of marketing for Eonic.
Fully supported by the system software like VSPWorks from Wind River Systems, Eonic's architecture is called CSPA, which attaches general purpose DSPs to a flexible I/O and communication 'backbone'. The software model allows the user to start to develop on a different target processor with a final selection of the hardware when the application has been profiled. If processing bottlenecks appear one can simply scale the system up and re-compile the application until the optimal configuration is reached. Application domains cover high-speed vision control, imaging, digital radio and radar, sonar and multichannel data acquisition.
The Atlas products are a family of CompactPCI high performance systems that tightly integrate a flexible range of DSP processing boards with a Pentium host processor running the software tools. Focusing on scalability and flexibility, each processor board contains a DSP such as the SHARC and Hammerhead from Analog Devices, the C6000 family from Texas Instruments or the G4 Altivec from Motorola.
VSPWorks was created and developed by Eonic Systems, the original parent company of Eonic Solutions. In April 2001, Wind River Systems acquired the Virtuoso technology and its development team. Following the acquisition, Eonic has also opened its Atlas system to other RTOS solutions, eg, supports OSE on its G4 platform for more specific applications in the telecommunication and safety critical domain.
Over the years, Eonic Solutions has acquired a broad knowledge base, built partnerships and developed a system design methodology that is at the core of the 'Atlas' product range.
