The SurfExpress/PCIe™ is a RoHS-compliant single-lane, half-length, full-height PCI Express form-factor DSP farm with multimedia processing capabilities.
Providing two Gigabit Ethernet ports and a CT bus for additional TDM interfaces, the SurfExpress/PCIe is designed to meet the requirements of V2oIP enterprise-scale media servers, media gateways, 3G-324M videoservers, iPBX, MMSC content adaptation engines, and CTI applications.
Optimized for mobile applications, the SurfExpress/PCIe also provides convergence of audio, video and data across other wireless and wireline networks.
The SurfExpress/PCIe utilizes a highly innovative patent-pending design featuring the SurfDocker™ modular plug-in, which carries up to four pairs of mixed types of DSPs and supports a variety of configurations to meet the application developer’s requirements. This paradigm allows varying types of DSPs to be assembled simultaneously on a single PCI Express carrier, including TI’s C64x generation or any new C64 family member that is released to market. Up to four SurfDocker modules can be plugged into a single SurfExpress/PCIe, for a total of eight DSPs per PCI Express board. This flexible and scalable hardware design results in a cost-effective solution providing reduced time-to-market.
The SurfExpress/PCIe comes complete with SurfWare-Media™, Surf’s telecom-ready comprehensive media processing software that performs concurrent processing of audio, video and data (fax + modem) on the DSPs, enabling real-time intelligent resource management and load balancing for maximum flexibility. This makes the SurfExpress/PCIe a powerful content adaptation platform enabling service interoperability among various clients and networks.
