OEM-ready DSP-based solution targets remote server access and control

Santa Clara, Calif. — Design services house eInfochips Inc. has begun the licensing of a DSP-based solution that provides real-time responses of keyboard, video and mouse over TCP/IP to control servers remotely.

With a bill of materials of approximately $90, the OEM-ready card-level design enables rapid development of state-of-the-art KVM/IP switches. Targeted at OEMs who plan to mass manufacture this product, it is a designed to be highly scalable and easily customizable. The unit employs Texas Instruments DM642 DSP video processing engine in the KVM/IP product

To achieve the unit's real-time performance, a frame compare and image compression algorithm with special techniques for noise filtering and video compression is implemented on the DSP. The solution also features all the standard KVM/IP requirements, such as highly secured remote access and server control right from boot-up, browser based control, field upgradeable design, compatibility with standard KVM switches and many more.

The unit is said to support all major server platforms and provides remote access to servers using standard IP connections. It enables management of servers right from the boot-up process as if the network administrator was sitting next to the managed device. “The availability of this solution enables the KVM Switch OEMs to drive time and cost out of the development lifecycle for their new products,” said Tapan Joshi, vice president of marketing at eInfochips.

The manufacturing-ready solution is available now. The company will license the design to OEMs in different models such as a one time licensing fees. Another model would be a down -payment for license plus royalty. Licensing fees were not disclosed.
