Digital Signal Processing has undergone enormous growth in usage/implementation in the last 20 years and many engineering schools are now offering real-time DSP courses in their undergraduate curricula. Our everyday lives involve the use of DSP systems in things such as cell phones and high-speed modems; Texas Instruments has introduced the TMS320C6000 DSP processor family to meet the high performance demands of today’s signal processing applications.

This book provides the know-how for the implementation and optimization of computationally intensive signal processing algorithms on the Texas Instruments family of TMS320C6000 DSP processors. It is organized in such a way that it can be used as the textbook for DSP lab courses offered at many engineering schools or as a self-study/reference for those familiar with DSP but not this family of processors.

This book provides a restructured, modified, and condensed version of the information in more than twenty TI manuals so that one can learn real-time DSP implementations on the C6000 family in a structured course, within one semester. Each chapter is followed by an appropriate lab exercise to provide the hands-on lab material for implementing appropriate signal processing functions.

Key Features

  • Each chapter is followed by an appropriate lab exercise
  • Provides the hands-on lab material for implementing appropriate signal processing functions


Self-study/reference for hardware and software technical managers and practicing engineers familiar with DSP and involved in system design using TI’s TMS320C6000 family of DSP devices. These readers will be at companies involved with wireless communications, security systems, military systems, embedded control systems (automotive), e.g., Texas Instruments, Nokia, Ericsson, Motorola, GE, Sony, Raytheon, etc. Upper division, undergraduate lab students studying Real-Time DSP.
