Texas Instruments Selected as a Finalist in Three Categories for EDN Innovation of the Year Awards

CCStudio v. 2.2, AR7 ADSL router on chip and technical article nominated by EDN's editorial staff

Feb 6, 2004

HOUSTON and DALLAS (February 6, 2004) – Electronic Design News (EDN) has named two Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN) products, Code Composer Studio™ (CCStudio) 2.2 and the AR7 ADSL Router as finalists in EDN´s 2003 "Innovation of the Year" awards competition.  In addition, a TI-authored article titled, "Designing Controlled-Impedance Vias,” was named a finalist in a new contributed article category created by the editorial staff to recognize depth of quality of technical pieces.  Winners will be chosen by EDN’s readers through an online ballot on EDN Access Web site at http://www.reed-electronics.com/ednmag/innovationballot.asp Building on an unparalleled foundation of digital signal processing and analog technology, TI is able to deliver truly unique engineering products that continue to provide innovation and that meet customers’ real world signal processing requirements.  



Hours of Development Time Saved with Fast Simulation Technology in CCStudio v. 2.2


New additions to TI´s CCStudio v.2.2 including DSP fast simulation technology and an Analysis Tool Kit (ATK) for its TMS320C5000TM and TMS320C6000TM DSP platforms were selected to compete in EDN’s "Software" category.  The true innovation lies in TI´s underlying simulation technology that enables developers to run complex DSP simulations in minutes instead of hours.  This technology, when coupled with the new Analysis Tool Kit, enables developers increased application visibility and the opportunity to profile and model full DSP applications.  To view the award entry, please see: Code Composer Studio Version 2.2.  



First Truly Integrated ADSL Modem on a Single Chip


TI´s AR7 ADSL router on chip was chosen as a finalist in the "Application-Specific Standard Products/SoCs" category.  The AR7 is the first truly integrated ADSL modem and bridge/router on a single piece of silicon.  The AR7 integrates all devices, including the line driver as compared to competitors´ single chip ADSL products which use multi-chip modules or do not integrate the line driver.  To view the award entry, please see: AR7 ADSL router on chip.
