The Texas Instruments Digital Video Evaluation Module (DVEVM) contains hardware and software that are intended to serve as: a platform for quickly evaluating the capabilities of the TMS320DM6446 chip (part of TI’s DaVinci family of processing engines); and an easy-to-use, straightforward environment to enable ARM-Linux embedded systems developers (who may not have DSP expertise) to quickly begin development of applications incorporating multimedia functionality without having to program a DSP processor.

In this white paper, BDTI, an independent technology analysis company, evaluates the capabilities and ease-of-use of the DVEVM.
