    RingIO Users Guide posted

    I have finally got around to put up the users guide for the RingIO module on the wiki: http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/RingIO_Users_Guide It discusses RingIO from a design standpoint, and is an updated version of what used to be in DSPLINK (for those of you who remember that product).

    For sometime now, I've heavily relied on print statements to debug my Linux user code when developing. With Code Composer Studio (CCS) v5 supported on a Linux host, I decided to take a look at how to leverage the IDE to debug my Linux user level code.

    Getting the D[a]M[n] Timer Config Right on TI81XX

    There have been several reports lately of the DSP hanging on DM81XX and C6A81XX devices. Sometimes it's a SysLink sample that doesn't run, a SYS/BIOS-only app who's timeouts are taking too long/short, or an existing app that worked fine, but fails when updating to a new EZSDK, Linux, or SYS/BIOS release. In many of these instances, the issue...
