Multicore DSPs offer to increase performance, scalability and flexibility
The C66x DSP core’s fixed- and floating-point capabilities are highly suited for audio infrastructure products as well as vibration and acoustic analyzers. The real-time nature of TI’s C66x multicore DSPs are also an excellent fit for high precision motion control and high channel count real-time process control systems like programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and programmable automation controller (PACs).
The manufacturer has made significant updates to its multicore software kit and toolset, including Linux software, optimized libraries, support for the OpenMP programming model and a free multicore software development kit (MCSDK). The MCSDK includes demo software, showing a multicore image processing example and a fast Fourier transform (FFT) based signal processing example. For the industrial automation market, free software libraries, IMGLIB and VLIB, for image processing-oriented applications, and DSPLIB and MATHLIB for real-time signal processing support are also available.
