Free DSP graphical software development tool automatically generates prototyping code
July 30, 2010 // Phil Ling
Provides drag-and-drop functionality to allow developers at any skill level to build DSP-based systems quickly and easily.
Allowing digital signal processing developers to leverage the computational power of TI's digital signal processors (DSPs), Texas Instruments has introduced the C6EZFlo graphical software development tool.
TI claims the tool simplifies and accelerates the development process, by enabling developers to generate prototype software on its DSPs without learning new programming languages or specific DSP architecture.
The graphical interface uses drag-and-drop functionality to create a signal flow block diagram. The blocks in the diagram represent anything from a peripheral input/output data transaction to a specialized DSP filter kernel. The tool generates heavily commented and cleanly structured C code based on the block diagram, which the developer can use in its raw form or modify to adjust the design.
Developers can use the tool with TI's C6000 DSP devices, as well as DSP-based DaVinci video processors, to enable quick and easy prototyping for various end applications, including industrial imaging, industrial monitoring, test and measurement, music effects and medical imaging applications.
