The TMS320C5510 DSP Starter Kit (DSK) developed by Spectrum Digital is a low-cost development platform designed to speed the development of power-efficient applications based on TI's TMS320C55x DSP generation. The kit, which provides new performance-enhancing features such as power analysis tools and USB communications for true plug-and-play functionality, gives both experienced and novice designers an easy way to get started immediately with innovative product designs.
TI's new power management tools allow developers to evaluate system power and examine the frequency-voltage scaling feature for future revisions of the TMS320C5510 DSPs. Designers can evaluate the Power Analyzer and Power Scaling Library to confidently tune their systems to maximize effiecient power consupmtion in applications ranging from portable internet appliances to high speed wireless communications.
The C5510 DSK offers the ability to detect, diagnose and correct DSK communications issues, download and step through code faster and get a higher throughput with Real Time Data Exchange (RTDX™).
The kit includes:
- C5510 DSP Development Board
- C5510 DSK Code Composer Studio™ v2.12 IDE
- Power Analyzer* and Power Scaling Library
- Quick Start Guide
- Technical Reference
- Customer Support Guide
- USB Cable
- Universal Power Supply
