Optimizing Compilers and Embedded Software
Many of today's DSP applications are subject to real-time constraints. Many applications will eventually grow to a point where they are stressing the available CPU and memory resources. Understanding the workings of the DSP architecture, compiler, and the application algorithms can speed up applications, sometimes by an order of magnitude. This article will summarize some of the techniques that can improve the performance of your code in terms of cycle count, memory use, and power consumption.
