ITTC Project

Rapid Prototyping for Digital Signal Processing Applications

Project Award Date: 0000-00-00


The goals of this research are to develop a methodology for employing computer aided design tools to rapidly and efficiently implement prototype systems using special purpose digital signal processors. This methodology is based on Comdisco's Signal Processing Worksystem (SPW), which provides a capability to translate conventional SPW simulations to DSP processor-specific assembly code. A major strength of the TISL faculty is their expertise with computer aided analysis and design of communications links. We have extensive experience with SPW and have applied it to several communications problems. The initial effort concentrates on the use of the Texas Instruments TMS320C30 for prototyping applications. Near term plans call for extension of rapid prototyping principles to multiple DSP processors, which will focus on use of the TMS320C40 DSP processor, a device which is optimized for multiple and parallel processor applications. This effort is currently being applied to the task of developing radio modems and military tactical radio systems.


Project Sponsors

Primary Sponsor(s): Rome Laboratories (U.S. Air Force)

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
