Texas Instruments Inc. has launched a new royalty-free video/imaging co-processor (VICP) Signal Processing Library that offers signal processing application developers access the DaVinci technology accelerator.

The VICP Library allows customers to open the VICP accelerator on the TMS320DM6446, TMS320DM6441, TMS320DM647 and TMS320DM648 digital media processors based on DaVinci technology, helping them improve system performance and speed time-to-market.

The VICP Library aids developers in maximizing performance of these four digital media processors with ready-to-use signal processing algorithms for matrix/array operations, digital signal processing and video/image processing. The library has been fully tested to achieve maximum efficiency on the VICP, which helps offload TI's TMS320C64x+ DSP core. This allows customers to utilize the increased DSP headroom to better differentiate their products by implementing custom algorithms or adding more advanced features in applications such as image processing, feature extraction, automotive safety application, and security and analytics systems.

The VICP Library supports various operations to enable additional DSP resources, including:

??Matrix/array operations such as: matrix multiplication/transpose, array multiplication/addition and array scalar operations;
??DSP operations such as one dimensional/two dimensional finite impulse response filter, filtering, convolution and correlation;
??Digital imaging and video processing functions such as alpha blending, color space conversion, image rotation, image pack/unpack and median filtering.

VICP Library is available directly from TI and is royalty-free. To obtain access to the library, please visit to receive the library and User's Guide. Customers can immediately begin evaluation on TI's Digital Video Evaluation Modules for DaVinci technology or proprietary boards.
