Wireless and DSP System Design Tool
SystemView 5.0 includes a significant enhancement to its Real Time DSP Architect (RTDA), which links SystemView with Texas Instruments' Code Composer Studio Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Version 5.0 allows users to design wireless systems and create optimized fixed-point C code that can be ported directly for use on Texas Instruments' DSPs with a click of a mouse.
Generated C code meets TMS320 Algorithm Standard to facilitate eXpressDSP compliant algorithm development, and exporting readable and efficient ANSI C code for individual tokens, subsystems, and full systems designed in SystemView. The design tool includes fully automated optimization for x86, Texas Instruments' TMS320C5000 and TMS320C6000 platforms. A customize option allows code generation for virtually any processor, and DSP library tokens generate fixed-point C code.
Enhancements to the SystemView environment now allow an unlimited number of tokens and MetaSystems within the design area, drag and drop copying and moving of tokens between MetaSystems and customized token numbering.
New Scheduler tokens allow system designers to control the operation of tokens and entire subsystems within the SystemView environment using algebraic and logical expressions. Additionally, token parameters can be defined in terms of system runtime parameters, including the output of other tokens in the system. These features expand system-level design flexibility to unparalleled levels and can speed up simulation speed for large system simulations.
In version 5.0, new tokens are added to SystemView that allow for the efficient generation of packets and frames of data, key for today's demanding wireless specifications. The Generalized Multiplex and Demultiplex tokens allow users to generate the necessary frame sequences for WLAN (e.g., 802.11a) and mobile phone (e.g., GPRS) applications. The enhanced demultiplexing feature also makes processing received data much easier.
