Access a 56311EVM from a PC - johned000 - Jun 18 10:21:00 2002

Does anyone know how to access a 56311EVM from a C/C++ program
running on the PC ? I would prefer to be able to do this via the
parallel port to get the best performance.

Thanks very much,

John Edwards

John-

Parallel port interface from MATLAB and Visual Studio programs:

I thought that Motorola no longer makes the 56300 series devices, or at least
has no
plans for improvements or new devices?

Thanks Jeff,

The DirectDSP software looks just the thing, how much is it and can I use this
under Win2K ?

Unfortunately, I work for Motorola Computer Group, not the silicon group so I do
not know what the plans are for the 56K family.

All the best,

John -----Original Message-----

Jeff,
We actually just release our DSP56321T (240MHz) a few months ago and the
DSP56321 a few quarters ago.

Todd,

what are the plans for the 56300 audio DSPs, especially the DSP56362 and
56364. They have been released some years before and I fear that they could be
discontinued soon....

Christian

Re: Access a 56311EVM from a PC - Jeff Brower - Jun 18 18:31:00 2002

Todd-

Are you and John former Blue Wave? John's name sounds familiar, like Mizar or
DNA
Enterprises or LSI or something.

Thanks for pointing out the recent 563xx new introductions. It looks like the
56321T
compares well with something like C5416; similar speed and onchip SRAM. I note
the
high status of the "position independent code" feature :-) What is the physical
size
of the FC-PBGA-196 package?

It will be interesting to find out about Mot's plans for multicore devices, and
catch
up on differences in power consumption, MIPS/mm density, and offchip SRAM and
I/O
support features between 5632x and C54/55xx devices.

As an aside, on a basic engineering level I'm happy to hear that, *finally*, at
least
there is something new. On a business level, it seems like too little too late.
Why
can't Motorola at least figure out how to make more noise about new DSPs? Does
Mot
CEO-level management *still* think the largest DSP customer is internal usage,
so
therefore no point in working with non-Mot telecom, speech, acoustic, and other
general-purpose customers? I'll never forget Mot's DSP meltdown in 1997. Super
fine, super bright people like Roman Robles, Paula Such, Avner Goren, David
Baczewski, Kent Heath, and many, many more scattered to the winds. It was as if
Mot
execs actually sat down and said "Let's do the exact opposite of Texas Inst,
what do
they know. And what's that Internet thing, anyway?" An amazing example that
Dilbert
management really, truly exists at the highest level of semiconductor corporate
management.

I'd like to hear full lenght history of the whole 56K series, from 56001 to
56321T successor. Are there any articles in the Internet?

With best regards, Oval. E-mail:

Some readers might consider as valuable occasional, brief personal opinions from
someone who has been in the DSP community for 20+ years, worked closely with
executive level personnel at Texas Inst, Motorola, ADI, and Lucent over those
years,
has been/is running a growing DSP business in 2001 and 2002, *and still does
engineering work including writing DSP code for various processors from various
vendors*.

Oval-

Who are you? Why do you want to know? Does your company have a website? Do
you
work with a Motorola group that has affiliations in Russia, such as iDEN out of
Schaumburg?

Details about the Mot 56300 DSP saga are not something that I would post on a
news
group.
