Digital X-Ray  Favorite

Digital X-ray is a form of x-ray imaging where digital sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. It revolutionized the classic x-ray by providing more information, reducing diagnostic time, lowering cost and opening access to a broader range of post-processing tools.

Freescale's family of DSPs—with their high-processing capacity of up to 48GMACS, built-in FFT HW accelerators, low-power consumption and competitive pricing—provide a realistic solution for replacing FPGAs and ASICs. Combined with the i.MX ARM®-based MPU family and 2D-3D built-in accelerators and rich connectivity, they are the perfect combination for your next-generation design.

  • Freescale product longevity program offers up to 15-year availability for selected products
  • A spectrum of processors (ColdFire, i.MX and Power Architecture®) in terms of performance and integration
  • Freescale's Controller Continuum enables development on an 8-bit platform that can then be upgraded to 32-bit platforms as new application needs arise
  • ColdFire – Embedded high-performance DSP functionality with integrated MAC
  • High-performance processors – PCI Express support and Serial ATA (SATA) for storing images
  • MSC815x and MSC825x StarCore-based DSPs deliver a high level of performance with pin compatible scalability from 1 to 6 cores running at 1 GHz and delivering up to 48 GMACs
  • Freescale's multicore StarCore-based DSPs offer unprecedented I/O and memory with the ability to combine PCI Express, Serial RapidIO and/or Gigabit Ethernet for FPGA connectivity. 1 or 2 64-bit DDR2/3 interfaces will support most data intensive applications such as medical image reconstruction.
  • MSC815x family features a dedicated DFT/FFT hardware accelerator capable of running up to 350 Mega samples/sec; off loading these functions from the cores leaves ample processing headroom for additional system requirements.
  • Dedicated medical peripherals and healthcare connectivity stacks
  • USB, IEEE® 802.15.4 and ZigBee® technology solutions for wireless interfaces
  • i.MX MPUs - versatile platform for display and multimedia applications
