We talked of RTOS a little while ago. This time it's turn for The SmartDSP Operating System (OS), and more specifficly, SmartDSP API.


But, what is the SmartDSP OS?

It is a Real Time Operating System (RTOS) that, in addition to providing drivers for the MSBA8100 processor, also runs on the following StarCore DSP-based processors:

  • MSC815x
  • MSC825x
  • PSC9131


The StarCore CodeWarrior (CW) Development Studio includes SmartDSP OS royaltyfree source code. Further, SmartDSP OS has a high-level Application Programming Interface (API) that lets users develop integrated applications for StarCore processors. This Reference Manual documents SmartDSP OS API.


Having this API updated and available for processors MSC815x/MSC825x/PSC9131, possibilities of coding within CodeWarrior features become even broader.
