Mass Storage Daughter Card






Mass Storage Daughter Card

Applied Signal Processing’s Mass Storage Daughter Card for Texas Instruments TMS320C645x, TMS320DM64x, TMS320C64x, TMS320C67x and TMS320C55x DSP Starter Kits (DSKs) and Evaluation Modules (EVMs) quickly adds Mass Media storage and retrieval capability to any DSP project. The daughter card can support a Secure Digital, Compact Flash or Hard Drive. With the Mass Storage Daughter Card and Applied Signal Processing’s FAT32 compatible file system, developers can quickly expand the functionality of their DSP project to include file I/O capabilities. This Daughter Card is the ideal reference design for your applications that need features such as audio streaming, large amounts of data acquisition, or a flexible system reconfiguration option. Using the daughter card in conjunction with a DSK or EVM allows your application software development to move forward while your custom hardware is fabricated, shortening your product development cycle.
