Abstract
Texas Instruments recently introduced its latest C6000 family DSP core; TMS320C64x. C64x is a VLIW DSP core with eight 32-bit functional units, two levels of on-chip memory and a programmable Direct Memory Access (DMA) controller. We have developed about 25 image/video computing functions and have assessed its performance and suitability in image/video computing. We present some of these results along with an example on how we mapped image warping optimally onto the C64x core. C64x, although a 32-bit architecture, has a throughput similar to that of 64-bit architectures. It is powerful due to its large and multi-level on-chip memory, a number of available functional units, high clock frequency, and ease of programming.
