The laboratory curriculum developed for a semester long senior-level elective course in Real Time Systems is presented. The projects were developed on the OMAP 5912 starter kit (OSK5912) module supplied by Texas Instruments (TI). Some of the applications covered are: implementing a finite impulse response (FIR) filter and testing with audio, modifying the filter for different band pass characteristics, testing a media codec and implementing an embedded web server. TI expects to disseminate the instructional resources developed and tested in this course to other universities and industry partners.
This paper presents the laboratory curriculum developed for a senior-level elective course in Real Time Systems. The labs developed for this semester long course are aimed at providing a challenging experience to electrical and computer engineering students and exposing them to state-of-the-art tools from industry. The projects were developed on the OMAP 5912 starter kit module supplied by Texas Instruments (TI). The open multimedia architecture platform (OMAP) technology from TI consists mainly of dual-core processor chips 1. The OMAP 5912 chip has an ARM processor and a C55 digital signal processor (DSP) in the same package, a functional block diagram 2 of which is shown in Figure 1. The Linux kernel runs on the ARM processor and the DSP-BIOS kernel runs on the TI C55 DSP in tandem. The real time software development tools for this system are the Code Composer Studio integrated development environment (IDE) and the MontaVista Linux environment. The platform is thus ideally suited to expose students to real time systems. The projects developed cover the following topics sequentially: introduction to the environment, real time operating systems, software development and application debugging 3. Some of the applications covered are: implementing a finite impulse response (FIR) filter and testing with audio, modifying the filter for different band pass characteristics, testing a media
