ACTIVE v01.20.04  04 Jun 2011  C-based library APIs and examples for peripheral and IO configuration with or without an operating system 


C6000 DSP StarterWare provides C-based no-OS platform support for the C6000 DSP devices. StarterWare provides device abstraction layer libraries, peripheral proramming examples such as Ethernet, graphics and USB, and board level example applications. StarterWare can be used stand-alone or with an RTOS.

Additional Information
  • Peripheral programming interface
  • Example applications for each peripheral to demonstrate proramming and usage of the peripheral
  • Software portability across devices for a given peripheral
  • Tool-chain agnostic C code (Some startup code will be in assembly and hence some part of the code will be tool dependant)
  • Support for Windows(R) host and Linux host
  • Support for the following tool chains:
    • TI DSP code generation tools
  • Graphics library and USB stack ported with example applications
  • Doxygen based application programming interface (API) reference guide available with delivery package
