TivaWare for C Series CMSIS Support

Texas Instruments, with the C Series of ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers (MCUs), supports the ARM Cortex Microcontroller Software Interface Standard (CMSIS), a standardized hardware abstraction layer for the Cortex-M processor series. The CMSIS enables consistent and simple software interfaces to the processor core and simple basic MCU peripherals for silicon vendors and middleware providers, simplifying software re-use, reducing the learning curve for new microcontroller developers and reducing the time to market for new devices.

The CMSIS DSP library includes source code and example applications, and saves time by including common DSP algorithms such as complex arithmetic, vector operations, and filters and control functions. The ARM Cortex-M4 core uses the DSP SIMD instruction set and floating-point hardware that enhances the Tiva C Series microcontroller algorithm capabilities for digital signal control applications.
