Default Configuration for TI DSK6713

Started by Alberto Fahrenkrog April 20, 2006
Hi all! I'm working since not very much on a TI DSK6713. Despite having 
had some success with some examples and modifying them, I've not been 
able to create a project from scratch, using the Code Composer Studio 
that comes with it. This is not so bad, but still I'd like to create 
something simple and have some "Starting Guidelines" or compiler and 
linker settings.

And other thing, does anybody know how to pass a floating point result 
to the Audio Codec?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks a lot!

Convert to integer.

Try reading both the processor manual and the codec data sheet. Jerry -- Engineering is the art of making what you want from things you can get. �����������������������������������������������������������������������

The tutorials that came with the DSK are pretty helpful. Do go through all of them. As for creating a project from scratch, you can create a default DSP/BIOS configuration for the DSK, add it to your project, and forget about it. It will include a linker file for you. Then just write a C/C++ program using main() like you normally would. You don't have to worry about tasks, interrupts, and what not until you're ready to start making use of those features, and then they'll be easily added since you've already started with a DSP/BIOS configuration.

I am not sure many people do create a project from scratch! In the past for the '6713 I take a basic example program from the CCS tutorial or the Chassaing book and modify it (normally very substatially!). The 'right way' from TI's perspective is to use methodolgies with buzzwords like ExpressDSP, DSP/BIOS and Reference Frameworks, but I often find these rather tortuous. To me, these are a whole new set of rules and development environments to learn, which is why I quite like the Chassaing book which doesn't really use these too seriously. That way you learn more about what's going on under the hood without having to learn about confusing methodologies.

Cast to int! Seriously, the Chassaing book will answer many of your questions. Cheers, Howard
