Help on DSP boards.

Hi,

I am a CS student and an absolute newbie to the world of DSPs. I need
to evaluate DSP boards that I can use to do some computation intensive
operations in C programming. For example
Kloosterman's sum

    K(a,b;p)=\sum e_p(ax+bx^*) ,

where

    ep(t) = e2pit / p

and x* is the inverse of x modulo p and p is a prime number.


I was wondering which DSP board I can use. I would want something that:

1. Be connected through USB/JTAG.
2. Can be programmed in C and has a good cross compiler, debugger and
environment so that my environment is easy to use.
Ideally, I would be doing this on 2-3 boards and come up with a
performance analysis.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Krushna

I suggest you investigate using a PC with fast Pentium processor first
especially when used in conjunction with Intel's Performance Primative
library.

At work, we have ceased using dedicated DSP boards, and now build ou
systems based solely on Pentium CPUs. Our applications include HF Passiv
Sonar, which is very demanding of processing power to run in real-time
You can save megabucks taking this approach.

Hi Jeff,

This is more of an experiment than practical application. What we want
for our performance analysis are results of the computation on say a
fast Pentium processor and two-three  DSP boards so that we know how
useful it is to do such a thing.

Since we are going to buy just a single DSP toolkit or two, cost should
not be a consideration. The funding for that too is expected to come
from my school :-).

Thanks,
Krushna

DSP using a non DSP processor
My requirement is to use a moderate controller (Non DSP) and take analog sinusoidal signals (half second cycle 50 hz) , take their samples, do a Fourier transform to remove harmonics and then multiply them to find instantaneous power. Then do a Low Power Filtering operation on this power signal. Is it possible? has anyone implemented anything similar or am I being too ambitious? please post your comments about its feasibility.

TI DSP Board
hi all, I am a postgraduate researcher based in Ireland. I am currently trying to use Matlab code developed by another researcher on a TMS320C6416 EVM. I have been trying to use the Matlab C compiler to convert the Matlab code to C and then use it in Code Composer Studio to program the chip. However this isn't working correctly. The code will compile fine in CCS but I am unable to build it. The conversion using the matlab compiler like any automatic conversion makes the C code very diificult to understand and I am beginning to think that it would be better to just manually convert the c...

DSP@
DSP@ fetches the address of the top of stack, and places it on the stack. In doing so, of course, a new stack entry has to be created. So, which address goes on the stack? The previous one (before the new stack entry) or the new one? Currently, my code uses the new address: INCT R4 - create new stack entry MOV R4,*R4 - place address of stack pointer in top stack entry Mark.

If you have a machine with no native PUSH and POP, you can choose either of them. Strange to see a stack growing upwards, do you use a TI 99 or something? FIGFORTH for the 1802 had the data stack growing upwards and the return stack downwards. If the sequence 'DSP@ DSP!' does not change DEPTH, you're ok. On an Intel/AMD/Cyrix etc. PC you can do 'PUSH SP' followed by 'POP SP' and the stack pointer will not change, providing you do this on a 286 (just checked;-) or higher. -- Coos CHForth, 16 bit DOS applications http://home.hccnet.nl/j.j.haak/forth.html MarkWills <mar...

Fixed Point DSP Vs Floating Point DSP

A fixed-point DSP does only fixed-point arithmetic, and usually has hardware to facilitate multiplication. A floating-point DSP has extra hardware for floating-point addition and multiplication (addition is a bit more involved than multiplication) and often omits the hardware to facilitate fixed-poing multiplication. Expect some difference in the size of a few registers. A matter of curiosity (mine): What difference had you imagined?

DSP Sweep Sequence help

FYI, this code is from Mitra's DSP lab book. I know that the deriviative of the argument is the angular frequency, w=a*n + b. And I think I need to change the value of b in order to make the freq sweep from .1 to .3, but I don't know what that value needs to be.
