The Hardware Configuration workspace allows you to choose a Processor or Processors for your design. It also allows you set up communication between SigmaStudio and the hardware.
To learn about the advanced operations that can be accessed in the Hardware Configuration tab (including Output Capture, Flash/E2Prom download, Register Control Window, and the Register Read/Write Window), refer to the topics within the Hardware Windows section.
Note: Notice that the Schematic Tab appears once you have inserted a DSP in the Hardware Configuration window.
Note: The Communication Channels menu lists the names with the prefix EvalBoard and the board number. These communication channels will work for the same IC types on platforms that don't use the evaluation-board setup. There's also generic communication channels, USBSerialConv and USBi. (See the USB Serial Converter Communication Channel or USBi for more information.)
The color of the USB label on the communication block indicates whether a USB communication channel has been established. If you have properly configured the USB hardware, the background color will be light orange or white. If the communication is not initialized the background will be red. Note that this only indicates that a USB connection is active, it does not guarantee communication with the SigmaDSP IC or that the SigmaDSP hardware is properly configured.
The “Connected” background color is white when all board ICs are connected, and orange when only some ICs are connected, but not all. For example the ADAU1701 evaluation board includes both an ADAU1701 IC and an E2Prom IC. When connecting only the ADAU1701 the background will be light orange, but it will be white when connecting both an ADAU1701 and an E2Prom IC.
