How to Build a DSP Board

How to Build a DSP Board

How to Build a DSP Board

DSP experts...please help. I'm new to DSP's. I've been experimenting with the C6711 DSK by Texas Instruments. The outputs on this board are not sufficient for my future applications. And the prices on other DSP boards are way too high!

I need to build my own DSP Board using TI DSP chips. Any ideas on where I can find resources, books...etc on how to "specifically" build a DSP board?

Many thanks.  

RE: How to Build a DSP Board

Why don't you check the TI DSP web site?


RE: How to Build a DSP Board

Why not subscribe to TI's DSP magazine "Embedded Edge"?  You might find what you want it there.

RE: How to Build a DSP Board

You can develop PCB with PCAD or simular, and find firm to make it. In my country it costs for 30$. Also it is posible to develop this board there. You only need to draw schematic.

hi haitham
you don't need to build a DSP board you need a higher power I/O board.

This board should plug in to your expansion connectors and should contain your higher current devices.

In this way you are not reinventing the wheel you are simply adding on to an existing proven design.  This is the best way of engineering.


RE: How to Build a DSP Board

I don't know which place you belong to. Here in India our office Mistral software is a leading company in developing solutions using all DSP's. We can provide you with a compleate solution. But ofcourse it is going to cost. You have to just tell your specifications and the rest will definitely be done by our engineers.

RE: How to Build a DSP Board

Thank you all for your response. Rafeh1, I'm not sure if I have an expansion connector. All I have is JTAG connectors!!
I don't know if this will help.

Basically, the board I have is the 6711 DSK by TI. You can find it at


It has one input audio jack and one output audio jack. What I meant by the I/O's are limited, is that, say if I want to drive a subwoofer and a High frequency speaker. Using this board, I only have access to one single output!!! which doesn't help at all.


RE: How to Build a DSP Board

Psridhar, thank you for your response. I live in the US. I've been researching this issue (i.e. Cost Issue)for quite some time and I know how costly it is. But if you could provide me with a website for your company/office, that would be great.

If the prices are reasonable, I wouldn't mind. All I need is an expansion board (of some sort) to go with the C6711 DSP board of TI to expand the number of input and output lines. I don't if your company sells accessories/daugther cards for this specific DSP board.

I've consulted TI's website and they don't have such thing.
