ELTA builds 30 GFLOPS digital signal processor

Designers from IAI ELTA of Ashdod, Israel, have completed a programmable signal processing system capable of 30 billion floating point operations per second for high-performance military applications such as radar, electronic warfare, and communications intelligence. The parallel-processing machine, which ELTA engineers developed for an in-house customer, uses about 290 SHARC digital signal processors from Analog Devices of Norwood, Mass.

Designers from IAI ELTA of Ashdod, Israel, have completed a programmable signal processing system capable of 30 billion floating point operations per second for high-performance military applications such as radar, electronic warfare, and communications intelligence. The parallel-processing machine, which ELTA engineers developed for an in-house customer, uses about 290 SHARC digital signal processors from Analog Devices of Norwood, Mass. The DSPs work in parallel under a real-time parallel distributed operating system. Software tools available for the ELTA signal processor include operating system, compiler, linker, simulator, and debugger. - J.K.
