ATS-GMA-OCT is being discontinued. ***Not recommended for new designs. For GPU-based DSP, please use ATS-GPU-OCT

ATS-GMA-OCT is the optional Signal Processing Library for ATS-GMA-BASE. It provides out-of-the-box OCT imaging with very high-speed floating point FFT routines that have been optimized to provide the maximum number of FFTs per second, as well as Dispersion Compensation, Zero Padding, Log, and Windowing Functions. Benchmarks have shown up to 1,900,000 FFTs per second for 2048 points on one input.

ATS-GMA-BASE is a software library developed by AlazarTech to allow users to DMA data from its PCI Express waveform digitizers to a compatible AMD Graphical Processing Unit (GPU). ATS-GMA solves the problem of transferring data from a waveform digitizer to a GPU at very high speeds. Data transfer rates as high as 6.9 GB/s with latency as low as 100 μs have been demonstrated using PCIe Gen3 based waveform digitizers.

Ideal for Optical Coherence Tomography (SS-OCT) and other biomedical imaging applications that require real-time signal processing such as FFT.
