Once the hardware configuration is set, you are ready to construct a DSP design. Designs are created in the Schematic tab workspace (Figure 1). The Toolbox at the left gives access to various libraries containing building blocks that can be dragged and dropped in the schematic workspace on the right.
Note: The Schematic Tab is not displayed until a programmable DSP IC is inserted in the Hardware Configuration tab.
Schematic designs can be organized into multiple layers called Hierarchy Boards. The design example in Figure 1 has a single hierarchy layer called 'Main', as shown in the tab at the bottom of the screen. 'Main' is the default layer created for all designs and cannot be renamed. For more information on Hierarchy Boards and how to organize your program flow into board layers see the Hierarchy Board topic.
If you're ready to begin designing, refer to the following sections for more information:
