Description

The TMS320C62x™ DSPs (including the TMS320C6201) are the fixed-point DSP family in the TMS320C6000™ DSP platform. The C6201 device is based on the high-performance, advanced VelociTI™ very-long-instruction-word (VLIW) architecture developed by Texas Instruments (TI), making these DSPs an excellent choice for multichannel and multifunction applications. With performance of up to 1600 MIPS at a clock rate of 200 MHz, the C6201 offers cost-effective solutions to high-performance DSP programming challenges. The C6201 DSP possesses the operational flexibility of high-speed controllers and the numerical capability of array processors. The processor has 32 general-purpose registers of 32-bit word length and eight highly independent functional units. The eight functional units provide six arithmetic logic units (ALUs) for a high degree of parallelism and two 16-bit multipliers for a 32-bit result. The C6201 can produce two multiply-accumulates (MACs) per cycle--for a total of 466 million MACs per second (MMACS). The C62x™ DSP also has application-specific hardware logic, on-chip memory, and additional on-chip peripherals.

The C6201 includes a large bank of on-chip memory and has a powerful and diverse set of peripherals. Program memory consists of a 64K-byte block that is user-configurable as cache or memory-mapped program space. Data memory of the C6201 consists of two 32K-byte blocks of RAM for improved concurrency. The peripheral set includes two multichannel buffered serial ports (McBSPs), two general-purpose timers, a host-port interface (HPI), and a glueless external memory interface (EMIF) capable of interfacing to SDRAM or SBSRAM and asynchronous peripherals.

The C62x™ DSP has a complete set of development tools which includes: a new C compiler, an assembly optimizer to simplify programming and scheduling, and a Windows™ debugger interface for visibility into source code execution.
