Hi , I'm freshman to this technology. I want to know whether matlab or open software like opencv can run on OMAP-L138 for real time application?( Applications like image processing ) . Again I'm really new to this field & brief explanation would be good. Correct me if my question is improper. Any starting material for such application oriented approach?
Welcome to the OMAPL138 developers community. OMAPL138 is a low power device that combines the power of fixed point ARM9 with a fixed and floating point C674x DSP that is ideally suited for several real time applications and has a wide variety of peripheral integration. A good Starting point to get information on the Software offering on the device is the OMAPL138 Software Design guide which also has links to available training and demos that exist on the device
If you are looking for a low cost development platform the OMAPL138 based LCDK should be a good starting point:
there is a face detection demo on that platform that demonstrates the use of OpenCV on the C674x DSP. In addition to OpenCV, we also support a large number of DSP optimized libraries for image and vision processing:
As far as your question on Matlab is concerned, this might be best answered on the Mathwork forums. As far as I know Mathworks added limited device support for OMAPL138 after version 2011a so you might want to check what is the extent of support they provide.
There is a lot of development information on the processors.wiki.ti.com which should help you in your development. Could you elaborate on what kind or real time vision application you want to implement using OpenCV. Note the version provided with the LCDK C6-BIOS SDK is openCV 1.1.
Hope this helps

Thanks for the reply sir,
I'm thinking on using OMAPL138 for image processing, is it possible? Something similar to LOOKTELL feature in apple mobiles ( please explain scope within this domain )
have certain questions :
1) Do we need to implement only with opencv , any other options please mention?
2) What about workbench to simulate before doing on hardware?
I'm new, so simple question what are the prerequisites before starting with omapl138 or is there any other model which can suffice my requirement ?
If you are looking for implementing mobile apps then you might want to look at a OMAP4 based solution and get started with a Panda board like development kit as those set of device have support for lot of high level OS(Android, winCE) that may be required for the kind of look and feel you want with your end product.
You can implement the backend vision algorithms using OpenCV but I am not sure all the OpenCV IO operations are compatible with the drivers on our products so you might have to work with OS specific SDKs build your application. You can simulate your vision algorithms on the simulator for the DSP or ARM but this is not a iOS workbench like environment. You might want to post the question regarding availability of workbench like development environment in the OS specific forums to get a better answer.
