StarCore Digital Signal Processors


Freescale's digital signal processors, built on StarCore technology, offer high-performance programmable devices for baseband, aerospace, defense, medical and test and measurement markets. We have designed the StarCore DSP portfolio to provide customers with fully scalable and flexible solutions to get to market faster. Combine that with the low power and low cost of the StarCore DSPs and they are the ideal solution for your next design.

Our QorIQ Qonverge platform is based on a common architecture and integrates communications processing, StarCore digital signal processing and acceleration technologies into a single system-on-chip. Advanced process technology and exceptional integration allow the convergence of multiple functions traditionally performed on separate FPGAs, ASICs, DSPs and processors to be incorporated on a single device and are targeted for small to large cell base stations, voice and video, industrial, factory automation, power and aerospace and defense applications.
