CHAPTER 3

TMS320C6X Architecture

The choice of a DSP processor to implement an algorithm in real-time is application dependent. There are many factors that influence this choice. These factors include cost, performance, power consumption, ease-of-use, time-to-market, and integration/interfacing capabilities.

The family of TMS320C6x processors, manufactured by Texas Instruments, are built to deliver speed. They are designed for million instructions per second (MIPS) intensive applications such as 3G wireless, DSL/cable modems, and digital imaging. Table 3-1 provides a list of currently available fixed-point and floating-point C6x processors at the time of this writing. As can be seen from this table, instruction cycle time, speed, power consumption, ...
