The TMS320C31 DSP Chip as a Microprocessor: A Student Design Workshop

Christopher R. Carroll, Mohammed A. Hasan University of Minnesota Duluth

Abstract The TMS320Cxx series of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) chips provides a unique opportunity in electrical and computer engineering to merge two otherwise quite separate disciplines in one topic of study. The area of signal processing is quite theoretical and mathematical, whereas the topic of microprocessor systems is much more hardware oriented and applied. The design workshop experience described in this paper provided a chance for students in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) to merge these two disciplines in one topic of study. The course was oered in Winter quarter, 1999, and team taught by faculty in the department, with one faculty member from the Digital Signal Processing
