3Software development tools and the TMS320C6678 EVM

3.1 Introduction

There has been massive growth in real‐time applications demanding real‐time processing power, and this has led DSP manufacturers to produce advanced chips and advanced development tools which not only allow engineers to develop complex algorithms with ease but also speed up time‐to‐market. Development tools can be divided into hardware and software development tools (see Figure 3.1). Development tools are very important and tend to shorten significantly the development time, which is itself the most time‐consuming part of the production of a device.
