The EVP6472 is a Multicore DSP Developer's kit, 12Vdc standalone platform with USB 2.0 link to a Host computer. It features two TMS320C6472 Multicore DSP processors and a Virtex-5 FX30T FPGA node.


What is the "processing power" of the EVP6472?

The EVP6472 features two TMS320C6472 Multicore DSP processors, as well as one Virtex-5 FX30T FPGA with one embedded PowerPC 440 processor core.

How much external memory is available?

The EVP6472 features 512 MBytes of fast external memory. There is 256 MBytes of DDR2 SDRAM memory directly connected to each 'C6472 Multicore DSP processors.

What are the different memory areas available on the TMS320C6472 Multicore DSP processor?

The C6472 DSP chipset has the following three memory areas: L2 @ 0x00800000 608KB on-chip memory (one such area per core), SL2 @ 0x00200000 768KB on-chip memory (shared by all cores), external @ 0xE0000000 256MB external memory (shared by all cores).

Where can I find instructions / videos on how to set up Code Composer 4.x and Xilinx's Impact?

There are videos with written descriptions of these tasks available on the evp6472.com website.

How can I connect a ethernet to the EVP6472

It's possible to connect an SMT562E to the EVP6472. There is a header (RJ1) on the DSP board that has connections ready for this.

How can I connect the Xilinx JTAG to my board?

There are two methods of connecting Xilinx JTAG to your SMT372T board. There is the small header JP4, but the method we recommend is to use the SMT568VC1 cable / connector. If you bought your SMT372T as part of a system, you should have this cable / extender already. The red wire plugs directly into your Xilinx pod.

How big is an EVP6472 system?

The base system is around 120mm x 90mm x 50mm.

The height of the system (around 50mm) depends on the exact configuration. For specific information please contact us.
