3L introduces Diamond 4 to support Texas Instruments evaluation module

Users can now focus on high-level application code, and reconfigure apps to match changing conditions

By CBR Staff Writer

3L, the multiprocessing and reconfiguration company, has introduced Diamond 4 to support Texas Instruments (TI) TMS320C6472 evaluation module (EVM), providing freedom across hardware through a development model.

3L will support TI’s new TMS320C6678 EVM, based on the new TMS320C66x digital signal processors (DSPs), with its next generation Diamond release enabling users who are using the C6472 EVM to seamlessly migrate to the C6678 EVM.

TI’s TMS320C6000 multicore DSP platforms include a wide range of device choices that deliver scalable offerings with the high performance at lowe power levels and costs.

With 3L’s Diamond 4 support for TI’s EVMs, users can now focus on high-level application code, leaving complex multicore DSP housekeeping and integration details to Diamond.

Users can also easily develop reconfigurable, integrated offering by writing high-level algorithms on top of Diamond-enabled turnkey systems and receive full entitlement from TI’s broad portfolio of high performance multicore DSPs platforms.

Diamond 4 allows users to reconfigure applications to match unpredictable and ever-changing conditions without the need to delve into inner workings of the software and firmware.

Users can extend Diamond 4 to support proprietary C6000 systems, making it suitable for rapid prototyping on COTS hardware before deployment on custom hardware.

3L managing director Peter Robertson said as part of the TI Developer Network, 3L is ideally placed to reduce development effort and cut time-to-market on a wide variety of hardware systems.

"We realise that leveraging the massive increase in silicon integration and innovation on these new processors can present a challenge to users, suppliers and hardware developers, which is why 3L’s mission is to give an innovative development cycle that takes the burden of handling complexity from users and leaves them free to access the underlying power of the devices," Peter said.
