Interfacing C6713 DSK to PC

Started by ee_e...@yahoo.com October 3, 2007
Hi,
I need to send some data from the C6713 DSK to PC.
I prefer to save it as a file as well.
Where can I find some information on this?
Any help provided in libraries or documentation of the C6713 DSK?
Regards

You can do it via CCS using file I/O functions in your DSP C code, but that method is
slow and may interfere with real-time DSP code because a) it's JTAG based (relatively
slow serial interface) and b) serial data is forced through a chunk of undocumented
proprietary circuitry on the DSK put there by Spectrum Digital.

One alternative is the EducationalDSP HPI daughtercard, mentioned by Fariza Dion
Prasetyo in her post. This method is similar to what TI used to offer with the DSK
6711 board -- operating outside of CCS using a driver and DLL. The data rates are
much higher and it's straightforward to integrate with file I/O functions in Visual
Studio or .NET C/C++ programs.
