you need DSP Diamond Boards?

l   DSP Diamond Boards are optimized DSP Hardware to take up your next application. The boards come with the facilities to add the required additional hardware without much pain.

Starting with the DSP Diamond Boards give a Reliable and Quick-Start solution to your next signal processing applications.

l   As you know well, getting the target DSP devices in smaller quantities takes a very long time and much convincing with the DSP distributors. DSP Diamond boards relieve you from all this time consuming tasks and enable you to take up your DSP challenges from Day One!!.

l   Apart from the device procurement, DSP hardware requires other expensive facilities like SMD Production environment, Multilayer PCBs along with the professional manpower to manage all this.

By starting with the DSP Diamond boards, you need not invest anything on these facilities and start working on the application without any delay.

l   Apart from all this, FE’s Diamond boards are the lowest priced DSP Development platform in the market. You are assured of perfect DSP hardware with the lowest cost making your decision a wiser one!!.

l   DSP Diamond boards are supported with State of Art Program Debugging facilities to enable you gain the required confidence to develop applications without much troubles!!.

l  DSP Diamond boards accept the outputs of original development tools of device manufacturers. For an example, VC5416 Diamond board can accept the application code developed using CCS of TI.

l  DSP Diamond boards are the cost effective DSP learning tool. Initially, you use the same for learning about the DSP and then use the same in the actual application. With the Diamond boards, your investment in DSP never becomes a redundant one. You never get this facility from the DSP trainers of other sources.
