DSP/BIOS™ provides a complete set of instrumented kernel services optimized for fast execution speed and small size for use with Texas Instruments digital signal processors. DSP/ BIOS is instrumented to provide real time analysis of software executing on TI DSPs. DSP/ BIOS is included in Code Composer Studio? along with the editor, compiler, project manager, and debugger. This introduces a revolutionary approach to writing and analyzing real time software applications. DSP/BIOS provides a priority-based scheduler along with a set of real time analysis (RTA) tools, and real-time data exchange (RTDX) between the host computer and the target DSP.
Real-time application design is a balance of hardware and software that achieves the best performance within a particular cost. Embedded systems often require real time analysis for debugging complex applications. DSP/BIOS provides powerful tools which make the challenges of real time system design easier so they can meet critical deadlines. This application note provides an example of the steps for integrating DSP/BIOS features into an existing applications.
