Introduction

DSP Link is foundation software for the inter-processor communication across the GPP-DSP boundary. It provides a generic API that abstracts the characteristics of the physical link connecting GPP and DSP from the applications. It eliminates the need for customers to develop such link from scratch and allows them to focus more on application development.

The DSP/BIOS RTOS is expected to be running on the DSP.


Documentation

The following documentation is available:
