The MathWorks, represented in South Africa by Opti-Num solutions, is offering the Developer's Kit for Texas Instruments' digital signal processing (DSP).
The result of a collaboration announced in 2000, The MathWorks and TI have integrated MATLAB 6 and Simulink 4 with TI's eXpressDSP realtime software technology in order to eliminate the acute software gap between DSP algorithm research and implementation.
The combination of The MathWorks' algorithm development environment, DSP algorithms and system-level design solution with TI's leading development environment offers immediate advances in DSP design.
"The Developer's Kit for Texas Instruments DSPs helped me explore the flexibility of targeting realtime workshop to third-party development tools such as TI's Code Composer Studio," said Neal Lackritz, a Research Engineer at Bose Corporation. "Combining the Developer's Kit with The MathWorks open and extensible architecture allows me to customise realtime workshop for my application."
The Developer's Kit for TI DSP enhances productivity by providing engineers working throughout the product design cycle. It offers the ability to gain earlier access to DSP hardware and development tools for both realtime evaluation and optimisation, and for rapidly eliminating errors. Algorithm developers, system designers and embedded engineers can now easily simulate, generate and validate solutions for TI's TMS320 C6000 and TMS320 C5000 DSP platforms of fixed and floating-point DSPs.
The Developer's Kit includes several key features:
* MATLAB link for Code Composer Studio IDE provides seamless data transfer between Code Composer Studio and MATLAB, as well as direct MATLAB access to CCS functionality for controlling and debugging DSP applications.
* MATLAB link for realtime data exchange (RTDX) enables realtime transfer of data between MATLAB and a TI DSP device without halting the target application. The RTDX interface can be used to 'monitor' the DSP and display and evaluate results.
* Simulink target for Code Composer Studio IDE automatically constructs a Code Composer Studio project from C code generated by Simulink. Algorithms validated at the system-level can now be transferred in the CSS development environment, allowing engineers to focus on performance and optimisation issues instead of writing DSP source code.
* Simulink target for TMS320 C6701 EVM automates rapid prototyping and enables realtime evaluation of algorithms on a C6701 processor using the plug-in evaluation board. This component automatically builds an executable, downloads it to a C6701 EVM, and runs the executable on the DSP.
The Developer's Kit for Texas Instruments DSP is currently shipping for Windows 95/98/NT and works with Code Composer Studio v1.2 from TI.
