The D.Module.C6203 is the highest performance fixed-point member of the D.Module family of business card sized digital signal processor boards. It is perfectly suited for demanding, stand-alone, embedded image processing applications. The unique architecture allows a glueless connection of many CMOS image sensors without extra frame grabber hardware.
As with all members of the D.Module family, the D.Module.BIOS handles low-level hardware programming and lets you focus on the 'real' signal processing tasks.
Key applications are machine vision and biometrics. As a general purpose DSP board, the D.Module.C6203 however is perfectly suited to many other applications too. Special care has been taken to facilitate field maintenance and serviceability. The Set-Up Mode provides straightforward file upload for program and parameter updates via RS232 terminal. The Module Config File stores configuration data in human-readable ASCII format and provides script mechanisms to control system start-up. Set-Up mode also provides basic debug capabilities for in-field diagnostics without requiring special emulation hardware.
Excellent system adaptability is provided by the integration of reconfigurable logic: Up to 32 I/O signals are user-programmable and can be configured to a variety of interfaces, ranging from bit-programmable I/O to I2C bus controller, encoder interfaces, PWM, CMOS image sensor interfaces, etc.
Communicating with process control systems or multi-processor coupling is supported by two high-speed UARTs (up to 3 Mbaud) and three fast synchronous serial ports (up to 100 Mbit/s).
The TMS320C6203 DSP uses the VelociTITM modified VLIW architecture, with up to eight instruction units operating in parallel. Supported by a large internal memory, the basis for highest image data throughput and outstanding performance is laid out. Data acquisition and memory block transfers are handled in background by a 4 channel DMA controller. The processor's Expansion Bus provides the high-speed data acquisition path, which is capable of transferring image data under DMA control without additional buffers or FIFOs.
