Can I use STS module of DSP/BIOS while disabling RTA & RTDX at the same time?

Started by rose September 9, 2004
Hi, all,

TI C6x platform. Could I create STS objects and use them to monitor
system run-time information while at the same time disabling RTA and
RTDX in the DSP/BIOS configuration tool? I don't want the RTA and RTDX
modules to use up too much memory and CPU cycles.

Thanks!

Yes, you can but you will only see your CCS window update when the processor 
halts (i.e. hits a breakpoint, etc.).

Thanks a lot. I have another question:

As you have said, I can only see CCS window update when the processor
halts. Then in such a situation (with RTA and RTDX disabled), if I set
up some displays in the View -> Graph tools (for example, I want to
see the constellation graph of a stream of continuous incoming
wireless data frames), can I refresh the graph window while program is
running, without enabling breakpoints, to obtain the graph view
whenever I want?

What DSP are you using?  What version of CCS?

DSP chip is 6416 or 6202 and the version CCS is 2.2.

I'm not really sure about refreshing data on the 6202.  However, the 6416 
has a cool feature called "real-time mode".  If you go to Debug -> Real-Time 
Mode and then right-click on your graph (or watch window or memory window) 
and select "continuous refresh" then you will get exactly that.  The 6202 
won't allow for real-time mode but I think you can manually refresh the 
window.

Thanks. So it is to say that refreshing graph window during program
running time don't rely on the presence of RTDX?
