The ever-increasing features of high performance embedded computing systems has created a need for extremely high bandwidth inputs from real-world sensors. Sampling rates of billions of samples per second are being implemented, using FPGA technology to preprocess the data and switched fabrics to channel the resulting data to the processing subsystem.
In a deployed system, the data is processed and used to generate results, which might be threat identification, detection of a radio transmission, or reduction of noise or clutter. However, to create and refine the algorithms that perform these functions, databases of real-world sensor data need to be collected, stored and analyzed. The same FPGA technology that supports processing of high speed data can also be used to record and playback the data streams.
Tekmicro offers a wide range of QuiXstore data recording solutions to meet the demanding needs of streaming image and signal processing applications. In addition to Tekmicro hardware, software, and cores, QuiXstore systems can also include QuiXilica products.
