TI unveils new tools for ARM developers

By : |September 29, 2010 0

DALLAS, USA: Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) is launching two free software development tools to enable ARM, Linux and system developers to easily leverage the real-time, intensive signal processing power of the TMS320C6000 digital signal processor (DSP) in TI’s integrated floating- and fixed-point DSP + ARM processors.

The C6EZRun and C6EZAccel software development tools allow ARM developers to quickly and easily program the DSP and accelerates the development process and reduces DSP development starting time, time-to-market and development costs said a press release.

Using C6EZRun, ARM and Linux developers can easily port their current ARM applications to run on the DSP without changing their ARM code or learning DSP architectures. Partitioning code between the DSP and the ARM cores offloads the ARM and allows the DSP to efficiently process signal-intensive algorithms, improving overall performance.

Efficient partitioning of code from the ARM to the DSP can increase performance of certain algorithms by as much as 10 times. For system engineers looking to reduce development time by leveraging ready-to-use DSP software, C6EZAccel provides a framework to over 130 optimized DSP kernels, allowing them to add DSP functionality to their application and differentiate their product with TI-provided video, audio and voice codecs added the release.

IT further added, with the C6EZRun and C6EZAccel software development tools, developers can quickly and easily leverage the DSP to add intensive real-time signal analysis and algorithm processing features to their applications. The tools are ideal for adding digital signal processing functionality such as digital room correction capabilities to an audio system, people-counting capabilities to a video system or power measurement and analysis to a power metering system.
