Porting the 3L Parallel C environment to the Texas Instruments TMS320C40
Authors: Culloch, Alan D.
The TMS320C40 ('C40) is a transputer-like parallel processor from Texas Instruments. It is an order of magnitude faster than the T800 transputer. Parallel C is a popular programming environment for the transputer. The properties of both the 'C40 and Parallel C are described and the significant differences between the 'C40 and the transputer are pointed out. The techniques used to overcome these obstacles to porting Parallel C are presented. These include building a new real-time kernel and reusing existing software packages from industry and academia. The suitability of the 'C40 for parallel applications is discussed.
