C66x DSP tools and software

Software

TI provides key runtime software components and documentation to further ease development. The following software components are the ones most widely used.

Processor SDK

Processor SDK-RTOS provides DSP developers with full drivers and file system based on the TI-RTOS kernel, a light-weight real-time embedded operating system for TI devices. The SDK comes with chip support libraries, drivers, board support utilities, demonstrations and examples. The Processor SDK-RTOS allows developers to quickly start development of their own applications using CCS IDE for RTOS development.

AMC to PCIe adapter card (daughter card)

The AMC to PCI2 adapter card is a passive card that allows select TI EVM with an AMC header to be converted to a PCIe x4 lane edge connector so it can be inserted into a desktop PC or anywhere a PCIe header is utilized. Compatible EVMS with this card include the TMS320C6678 EVM and the TMS320C6657 Lite EVM.
