The TMS320C71x is the next-generation fixed and floating-point DSP platform. The C71x DSP is a new core in the Texas Instruments' DSP family. The C71x DSP supports vector signal processing, providing significant lift in DSP processing power over a broad range of general signal processing tasks in comparison to the C6x DSP family. In addition, the C71x provides several specialized functions which accelerate targeted functions by more than 30 times. Besides expanding vector processing capabilities, the new C71x core also incorporates advanced techniques to improve control code efficiency and ease of programming such as branch prediction, protected pipeline, precise exception and virtual memory management.
