Device and Documentation Support

TI offers an extensive line of development tools for the device platform, including tools to evaluate the performance of the processors, generate code, develop algorithm implementations, and fully integrate and debug software and hardware modules. The tool's support documentation is electronically available within the Code Composer Studio™ Integrated Development Environment (IDE).

The following products support development of the device applications:

Device Nomenclature

To designate the stages in the product development cycle, TI assigns prefixes to the part numbers of all DSP devices and support tools. Each DSP commercial family member has one of three prefixes: TMX, TMP, or TMS (e.g., TMS320C6745). Texas Instruments recommends two of three possible prefix designators for its support tools: TMDX and TMDS. These prefixes represent evolutionary stages of product development from engineering prototypes (TMX/TMDX) through fully qualified production devices/tools (TMS/TMDS).

Device development evolutionary flow:

    TMX Experimental device that is not necessarily representative of the final device's electrical specifications.
    TMP Final silicon die that conforms to the device's electrical specifications but has not completed quality and reliability verification.
    TMS Fully-qualified production device.

Support tool development evolutionary flow:

    TMDX Development-support product that has not yet completed Texas Instruments internal qualification testing.
    TMDS Fully qualified development-support product.

TMX and TMP devices and TMDX development-support tools are shipped against the following disclaimer:

"Developmental product is intended for internal evaluation purposes."

TMS devices and TMDS development-support tools have been characterized fully, and the quality and reliability of the device have been demonstrated fully. TI's standard warranty applies.

Predictions show that prototype devices (TMX or TMP) have a greater failure rate than the standard production devices. Texas Instruments recommends that these devices not be used in any production system because their expected end-use failure rate still is undefined. Only qualified production devices are to be used.

TI device nomenclature also includes a suffix with the device family name. This suffix indicates the package type (for example, ZWT), the temperature range (for example, "Blank" is the commercial temperature range), and the device speed range in megahertz (for example, "Blank" is the default).

Figure 7-1 provides a legend for reading the complete device.

Parts marked revision B are silicon revision 2.1 if '21' is marked on the package, and silicon revision 2.0 if there is no '21' marking.

User's Guides

    SPRUG82 TMS320C674x DSP Cache User's Guide. Explains the fundamentals of memory caches and describes how the two-level cache-based internal memory architecture in the TMS320C674x digital signal processor (DSP) can be efficiently used in DSP applications. Shows how to maintain coherence with external memory, how to use DMA to reduce memory latencies, and how to optimize your code to improve cache efficiency. The internal memory architecture in the C674x DSP is organized in a two-level hierarchy consisting of a dedicated program cache (L1P) and a dedicated data cache (L1D) on the first level. Accesses by the CPU to the these first level caches can complete without CPU pipeline stalls. If the data requested by the CPU is not contained in cache, it is fetched from the next lower memory level, L2 or external memory.
    SPRUFE8 TMS320C674x DSP CPU and Instruction Set Reference Guide. Describes the CPU architecture, pipeline, instruction set, and interrupts for the TMS320C674x digital signal processors (DSPs). The C674x DSP is an enhancement of the C64x+ and C67x+ DSPs with added functionality and an expanded instruction set.
    SPRUFK5 TMS320C674x DSP Megamodule Reference Guide. Describes the TMS320C674x digital signal processor (DSP) megamodule. Included is a discussion on the internal direct memory access (IDMA) controller, the interrupt controller, the power-down controller, memory protection, bandwidth management, and the memory and cache.
    SPRUFK9 TMS320C674x/OMAP-L1x Processor Peripherals Overview Reference Guide. Provides an overview and briefly describes the peripherals available on the device.
    SPRUGM6TMS320C6746 DSP System Reference Guide. Describes the System-on-Chip (SoC) system. The SoC system includes TI’s standard TMS320C674x Megamodule and several blocks of internal memory (L1P, L1D, and L2).

Electrostatic Discharge Caution


This integrated circuit can be damaged by ESD. Texas Instruments recommends that all integrated circuits be handled with appropriate precautions. Failure to observe proper handling and installation procedures can cause damage.

ESD damage can range from subtle performance degradation to complete device failure. Precision integrated circuits may be more susceptible to damage because very small parametric changes could cause the device not to meet its published specifications.
