Note: in order to develop with the VC33 DSK, Code Composer 4.12 and a JTAG emulator are required. If you do not have these additional tools, we suggest that you purchase the C6713 DSK.

The TMS320VC33 DSK is built using a state of the art low power and low cost 150 MegaFlop TMS320VC33. The board is further supported by a 48Khz stereo 20 bit codec with 2 on-board microphones, external SRAM, external FeRAM boot flash and CPLD logic. The new software applications and demos run under all Windows platforms (older C31 DSK applications are supported but Win9x only). Applications can also now be created in less time using the included TI-COFF optimizing C compiler.
