TI has released a graphical software development tool for DSP development. Dubbed the C6EZFlo, the tool simplifies the development process by letting developers generate prototype software on TI DSPs without learning new programming languages or specific DSP architecture.
The C6EZFlo's GUI lets developers utilize 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 leverage C6EZFlo with TI's C6000 DSP devices, such as C674x DSPs, as well as DSP-based DaVinci video processors, including DM643x and DM648, which enables quick and easy prototyping for various end applications, including industrial imaging, industrial monitoring, test and measurement, music effects and medical imaging applications.
The C6EZFlo software development tool is available here for free download.
