The TMP/ SMJ320C40KGD DSP is a 32-bit, floating-point processor manufactured in 0.72-um, double-level metal CMOS technology. It is the fourth generation of DSPs from Texas Instruments, and it is the world\x92s first DSP designed for parallel processing. The on-chip parallel processing capabilities of the \x92C40 make the floating-point performance required by many applications achievable and cost-effective.
The TMP/ SMJ320C40 is the first DSP with on-chip communication ports for processor-to-processor communication using simple communication software with no external hardware. This allows connectivity with no external glue logic. The communication ports remove I/O bottlenecks, and the independent smart-DMA coprocessor is able to handle the CPU I/O requirements.
The features of the communication ports are:
The DMA coprocessor allows concurrent I/O and CPU processing for superior sustained CPU performance.
The key features of the DMA coprocessor:
The TMP/SMJ320C40KGD CPU is configured for high-speed internal parallel processing. The key features of the CPU are:
Key factors in a parallel-processing implementation are the development tools that are available. The \x92C40 is supported by a host of parallel-processing development tools for developing and simulating code and for debugging parallel-processing systems. The code generation tools include:
The simulation tools include:
The hardware development and verification tools include:
