Overview

TORNADO-E2 series of DSP controllers for embedded application is a high-performance successor of popular TORNADO-E series providing highest available DSP performance using latest TI TMS320 DSP, enhanced high-speed parallel (PIOX2) and serial (ASIOX) I/O expansion daughter-card module (DCM) interfaces, multi-channel USB 2.0 host/device interface, FLASH memory card slot, system μ-controller (MC) with battery back-up clock and remote power supply control, and many more... The innovative feature of TORNADO-E2 controllers is that they allow to offload the on-board DSP from routine external host communication tasks using TORNADO-HCX  host communication controller DCM with Freescale PowerQUICC PPC-based communication processor for powerful hosting, data post-processing, networking, external communication and mass storage capabilities.

At the same time, and this is the most important point, the main user DSP application code designed for legacy TORNADO-E controllers will remain unchanged for TORNADO-E2 series, thus delivering smooth migration to the new higher-performance DSP platform.
