TI supports OpenMP API on multicore DSPs
Texas Instruments (TI) has announced its first commercially available support for OpenMP application program interface (API) on multicore DSPs.
The OpenMP API is a interface for developing parallel applications in markets such as mission critical, industrial automation, embedded vision, medical imaging, video surveillance, audio and video infrastructure and high performance computing.
“TI’s support of the OpenMP API on its KeyStone-based C66x multicore DSPs allows developers to easily migrate their applications,” said Michael Wong, CEO of OpenMP.
With the OpenMP API, developers designing with TI’s C66x DSPs can easily increase programmer productivity, while reducing design, development costs and time to market for embedded systems.
TI currently offers OpenMP API support for its TMS320C6670, TMS320C6671, TMS320C6672, TMS320C6674 and TMS320C6678 multicore DSPs.
OpenMP API tools for TI’s C66x multicore DSPs are currently available for download as part of the C6x Compiler.
