TI Releases CCStudio Tuning Edition IDE for Optimizing DSP Software

9/14/2004 - Delivering a new way for programmers to reduce system cost and improve the development timeline for high performance embedded systems applications, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE:TXN) announced the newest standard in software and development tools with the release of Code Composer StudioTM Tuning Edition Integrated Development Environment (IDE). CCStudio Tuning Edition accelerates the development process by providing an integrated collection of seven tools that make it easier and faster for digital signal processing (DSP) programmers to optimize code for speed and size.

CCStudio Tuning Edition’s tools proactively review program code, track potential areas for improvement and offer suggestions to help programmers optimize system performance and memory usage. These powerful yet easy-to-use features speed development time and help programmers unleash the full potential of TI’s TMS320C6000TM DSP platform devices.

“By fully utilizing CCStudio Tuning Edition’s tools and features, programmers can significantly reduce application development time,” said Mike Trujillo, eXpressDSP product marketing manager, TI. “Using the highly optimized code generated by CCStudio Tuning Edition, engineers can maximize the full capabilities of a high performance DSP, or in other cases fit their application into a less expensive device.”

New Dashboard and Powerful Optimization Tools
CCStudio Tuning Edition’s centerpiece is its dashboard, a user-friendly configurable display that reduces the learning curve typical of detailed code optimization tools, while enabling deep visibility into the ways in which a program is meeting key user goals. The dashboard is made up of four windows – the Advice Window, the Goals Window, the Profile Setup and the Profile Viewer.

The dashboard operates in unison with Tuning Edition’s three core tools – Compiler Consultant, CodeSizeTune and CacheTune. These tools all act as engines to power the selected optimization tasks with speed and targeted efficiency.

Pricing and Availability
Building on Code Composer Studio’s programmer-focused collection of tools and features, CCStudio Tuning Edition integrates everything programmers need for application development from start to finish including reference frameworks, project manager, code generation tools, built-in editor, simulators, DSP/BIOS, debug and analysis tools, drivers and software libraries. CCStudio Tuning Edition is available today for $3,595, which includes 15 months of update subscription service. For current C6000 Code Composer Studio subscribers, CCStudio Tuning Edition is available at no additional charge under their active subscription.
