TI unveils "Getting Started" software for DSPs
Houston, Tex. - "eXpressDSP" Reference Frameworks accelerates software development process for designers of digital signal processing (DSP)-based applications.
Houston, Tex. - 'eXpressDSP' Reference Frameworks accelerates software development process for designers of digital signal processing (DSP)-based applications. The design-ready reference frameworks are 'getting started' solutions for designers in the early stages of software development. Features include source code that is common to many applications and a structure to integrate custom or eXpressDSP compliant algorithms into the design.
The package includes three reference frameworks that can be populated with either custom algorithms or those selected from a library of over 500 available eXpressDSP-compliant ones from TI third party developers.
The reference frameworks are:
Compact (RF1) targeted at portable applications, tuned for systems with limited footprint.
Flexible (RF3) has the ability to be used in a wide spectrum of systems ranging from single channel, single algorithm configurations to multi-channel, multi-rate, multi-algorithm systems.
Extensive (RF5), scheduled to be available in the second half of 2002, supports static object creation, plus static and dynamic memory management.
Each frameworks includes design-ready, tested, reusable C-language source code, simple algorithms that act as placeholders for more advanced algorithms, detailed memory and instruction cycle budgets, adaptation guide for adding algorithms, channels, and drivers, and API reference manual.
