TI releases DSP Software and SDK from for Real Time Biometric Analytics

May 30, 2012 - 

The TMS320C6748 DSP development kit with pre-loaded C6748 SYS/BIOS software development kit (SDK) was introduced by Texas Instruments for biometrics real time analytics applications such as fingerprint recognition and face detection. The C6748 DSP development kit can process biometric information and is fitted for other digital signal processing applications such as audio and communications. It comes with Code Composer Studio IDE v5.1.

The C6748 DPS is versatile and interfacing is made easy. With design files and freely downloadable and duplicable board schematics, it reduces design work. With an array of standard interfaces for connectivity and storage, developers can add videos, audio and other signals into the board. With its expansion headers, developers can add camera board from Leopard Imaging and LCD screens. It is pre-loaded with C6748 SYS/BIOS, which includes:

– Latest SYS/BIOS real-time kernel
– C6748 StarterWare software package for lightweight, operating-system independent software libraries and utilities
– Code generation tools
– DSP core performance benchmarks that show real-time processing power of TI’s C674x DSPs

The C6748 DSP can take speed because of its SYS/BIOS. Developers can run demos in less than 10 minutes or create DSP applications in less than an hour.

It is pin-to-pin compatible across other DSPs of Texas Instruments products such as the C6748, C6746 and C6742 as well as software compatible with other TMS320C6000 DSPs. If developers wish to expand its use to include high-level operating systems like Linux, it is compatible with OMAP-L138 and OMAP-L132 DSP+ ARM9. Using high-level operating systems can expand its application to include network functionality such as industrial control, medical diagnostics and communications.
