Preface to the First Edition

Digital signal processors, such as the TMS320 family of processors, are used in a wide range of applications, such as in communications, controls, speech processing, and so on. They are used in cellular phones, digital cameras, high-definition television (HDTV), radio, fax transmission, modems, and other devices. These devices have also found their way into the university classroom, where they provide an economical way to introduce real-time digital signal processing (DSP) to the student.

Texas Instruments introduced the TM320C6x processor, based on the very-long-instruction-word (VLIW) architecture. This new architecture supports features that facilitate the development of efficient high-level language compilers. Throughout the book we refer to the C/C++ language simply as C. Although TMS320C6x/assembly language can produce fast code, problems with documentation and maintenance may exist. With the available C compiler, the programmer must “ let the tools do the work. ” After that, if the programmer is not satisfied, Chapters 3 and 8 and the last few examples in Chapter 4 can be very useful.

This book is intended primarily for senior undergraduate and first-year graduate students in electrical and computer engineering and as a tutorial for the practicing engineer. It is written with the conviction that the principles of DSP can best be learned through interaction in a laboratory setting, where students can appreciate the concepts of DSP through real-time ...
