Development kit aids C40 design
Version 2.1 of the Spox software development kit (SDK) includes a math/signal-processing library and a Spox-aware debugger that are integrated with Go-DSP`s Code Composer software. The SDK is also available with a multiprocessor version of the RTOS that is optimized for Texas Instrument`s C40 DSP. At the heart of the SDK, the Spox kernel features deterministic, real-time multitasking, interrupt processing, and DSP-optimized memory management. Task switching is 5 µs for a 50-MHz C40. Worst-case interrupt latency is 0.8 µs for a 50-MHz C40. Spectron Microsystems, 315 Bollay Drive, Santa Barbara, CA 93117; (805) 968-5100; Fax: (805) 968-9770.
