Many MCU-based applications can benefit from the use of an efficient digital signal processing library. ARM developed a set of functions called the CMSIS DSP library that is compatible with all ARM Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4 processors and that is specifically designed to use ARM assembly instructions handle various complex DSP functions. ARM supplies example projects for use in its Keil ┬ÁVision IDE that are meant to show how to build its CMSIS DSP libraries and run them on a Cortex-M3 or Cortex-M4 processor. This application note describes the steps that are necessary to build those same DSP libraries inside Code Composer Studio version 5 and run those example applications on a Stellaris.
