NEXTXEN Products Support Analog Devices SHARC and Blackfin DSP Development

Design Support for VisualDSP++

NEXTXEN offers several leading-edge development and analysis tools that will assist the typical embedded DSP developer.  Engineers developing software for Analog Devices DSP devices can benefit from the use of products such as the CodeBox DSP algorithm source, and the NEXTWave Signal Processing Lab.

Engineers engaged in embedded DSP real-time application development need to be concerned about overall algorithm efficiency and reliability.  The development cycle of writing source code within ADI's CROSSCORE VisualDSP++ and then debugging the executable program on a hardware emulator can greatly benefit from the use of NEXTWave Signal Processing Lab and CodeBox DSP source library tool set.  The iterative process of algorithm design and test within VisualDSP++ is enhanced with the use of NEXTWave Signal Processing Lab software.  Analyze the results of your embedded application and measure its performance with a wide range of waveform display and measurement options.


Analyze Algorithm Output

Your algorithm output can be exported from a VisualDSP++ design session and analyzed quickly within the NEXTWave SPL environment to see if the application is producing the intended results. Use sophisticated analysis tools to help keep your embedded application development on-track.

Use NEXTWave SPL to analyze the results of your VisualDSP++ DSP design

Save Time by Testing Algorithms Prior to Writing Code

Use NEXTWave SPL's intuitive programmable environment to quickly isolate problem areas in your design, and to rapidly develop solutions - without having to write any source code. The process of using data from your DSP application in the NEXTWave SPL environment is straightforward, and lets you quickly explore solutions by using a variety of powerful signal processing functions.


Use NEXTWave SPL to easily apply signal processing; in this example a filter is applied to remove a sinusoid noise signal

Harness DSP Source Code for Embedded Applications

Implement your NEXTWave SPL design algorithm in source code by using CodeBox.  CodeBox DSP algorithm source allows you to generate the source code for any NEXTWave Signal Processing Lab routine so that you can use it in your VisualDSP++ project.

Create Test Signals

Create customized test signals for your DSP application quickly and easily.  Design your test signals within the NEXTWave SPL environment and then export the waveform for use in your testing.
