TMS320DM365 preview of codec porting on Linux

TI codec software was traditionally run on a DSP, which had DSP/BIOS software kernel foundation as an OS. With the new range of upcoming SoCs, where the architecture is getting more hardware accelerator centric, the use of DSP is reduced.

The codec can operate directly from the main processor, which also hosts the primary OS. Therefore, the interaction of codecs with OS integrities becomes inevitable. DM365 is one such where the Host ARM926 runs the OS and application, and also has a portion of codec software.

This application note discusses in detail the various steps to make the codec work in such an environment. It considers Linux as the OS running on the Host ARM926. This application report is written with respect to the DM365 codec and software architecture, but would also be helpful to users who want to port their Code Composer Studio standalone/other OS-based codec/algorithm on Linux on DM365 or related platforms.
