Texas Instruments’ new TMS320C6671 DSP brings fixed- and floating-point computational capability to the industry’s fastest single-core DSP. This makes TI’s C6671 a viable alternative for designs based on existing single-core floating-point DSPs in the industry, such as Analog Devices’ (ADI) TigerSHARC processor family. This white paper examines how TI’s C6671 DSP not only provides hardware features to implement system-level functions, but goes much further by providing multiple options for implementing additional functions that make it a significantly more powerful single-core DSP than ADI’s ADSP-TS2012 TigerSHARC processor.
