Comparison of DSP Boards



I.1 Introduction

WE are firm believers in the need for a working knowledge of real-time DSP to be part of a complete EE/ECE curriculum. Such a working knowledge cannot come only through books, lectures, or MATLAB demos; students need to use actual DSP hardware and get real-time applications to run successfully before they can acquire a practical working knowledge of real-time DSP. Throughout the years, we’ve used a number of boards in our labs for this purpose using both fixed- and floating-point Texas Instruments (TI) processors, such as the C50, C31, C6201, C6211, C6711, C6713, and most recently the multi-core OMAP-L138 (which includes both a C6748 core and an ARM926 core). Of these boards, several ...
