Kane Computing to Distribute KCL DSP-Weuffen C6727 EVM Boards

Kane Computing Ltd (KCL) and DSP-Weuffen are pleased to announce a new world-wide distribution agreement (excluding Germany) for KCL to distribute their new low cost C6727 EVM and related products.

The DSP-Weuffen C6727 EVM board is a low-cost development platform, which enables users to evaluate and develop applications for the TI C6727 DSP family. Schematics, logic equations and application notes are available to speed up hardware development and reduce time to market.

The EVM package includes EVM-board with AIC23 audio codec and C6727 DSP, power supply unit, CD with software examples, data sheets and documentation in PDF format, printed manual, headers for external connectors X1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, the headers X1, 2, 4, 5, 11, 12 are not soldered to provide more flexibility for the user.

The USB-UHPI-Programmer is an add-on daughter card for the EVM C6727 board made by DSP-Weuffen GmbH. It is a low-cost programmer device that enables the user to evaluate the platform and to develop applications for the TI C6727 DSP family. The hardware is bundled with a set of ready-to-run Win32 software for Windows 2000 and Windows XP.

The programmer hardware is an electrical interface adapter that allows a standard PC to communicate with an EVM board through a USB port whilst the EVM board is accessed through the UHPI interface. In this setup, the PC operates as master to the interface and to the target. The exposed UHPI interface of the DSP is a shared memory interface by its nature and offers some extra features like configuration, interrupt signalling or address auto increment. In advance of the UHPI functionality, the interface further provides reset control of the EVM.
