Texas Instruments' TMDX5515eZdsp is a small form factor, very-low-cost USB-powered DSP development tool which includes all the hardware and software needed to evaluate the extremely low power TMS320C5515 16-bit DSP. This tool is similar to the TMDX5505eZdsp in the form factor but provides more evaluation options such as USB 2.0 and SD interface. The USB port provides enough power to operate the ultra-low-power C5515 DSP so no external power supply is required. This ultra-low-cost tool allows quick and easy evaluation of the advanced capabilities of the C5515, C5514, C5505A and C5504A processors. It also has an embedded XDS100 emulator for full source-level debug capability and supports Code Composer Studio™ (CCStudio) Integrated Development Environment (IDE) version 4.0 and eXpressDSP™ software which includes the DSP/BIOS™ kernel. The full contents of the Development Tool include C5515 eZdsp board CCStudio IDE Rev. 4.0.
