Here’s a recently published book that should add to the reference tools of embedded control professionals.

Real-Time Digital Signal Processing (based on TMS320C6000),” by Nasser Kehtarnavaz, Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Texas at Dallas, provides the know-how and insight for implementing and optimizing computationally intensive signal processing algorithms on Texas Instruments’ (TI) family of TMS320C6000 digital signal processors (DSPs).

The book is organized in a format suitable for dual usage: as a textbook in DSP-laboratory courses offered at many engineering schools, as well as for self-study/reference by users familiar with DSPs—though not this specific family of TI processors. It contains a restructured, modified, and condensed version of information found in more than 20 separate TI manuals, to allow learning real-time DSP implementations on the C6000 family in a structured course, “within one semester,” says the publisher.
