TI has just launched two new free software development tools that allow ARM, Linux and system developers to work with the TMS320C6000 DSP.

The software tools, dubbed "C6EZRun" and "C6EZAccel" are designed to help developers in leveraging the DSP to add intensive real-time signal analysis and algorithm processing features to their applications. Possible applications include adding digital room correction capabilities to an audio system, people-counting capabilities to a video system, or power measurement and analysis to a power metering system.

TI says that with C6EZRun, ARM and Linux developers can easily port their current ARM applications to operate on the DSP without changing their ARM code nor learning DSP architectures. Partitioning code between the DSP and the ARM cores offloads the ARM and allows the DSP to efficiently process signal-intensive algorithms.

Meanwhile, for system engineers wanting to reduce development time by utilizing the ready-to-use DSP software, C6EZAccel gives a framework to over 130 optimized DSP kernels, permitting them to add DSP functionality to their application and differentiate their product with TI-provided video, audio and voice codecs.

The C6EZRun supports OMAP-L138, OMAP-L137, OMAP3530, OMAP3525 and DaVinci DM3730 processors while the C6EZAccel supports OMAP-L138, OMAP-L137, OMAP3530, DaVinci DM6467 and DaVinci DM3730 processors.
