  1. 1. TI DaVinci : Embedded Software Development and Image Processing
  2. 2. Introducing DaVinci
  3. 3. Unboxed
  4. 4. Contents • Introduction to OMAP and DaVinci – Heterogeneous Multicore GPP + DSP • Linux OS and Kernel DSP/BIOS • Standards • Frameworks • Practical
  5. 5. A GPP or General Purpose Processor is capable of doing and handling I/O running os but is lot slower on video and imaging task where GPU wins because of MAC units but GPU fails in general computing tasks. So a mixture of both is norm of todays computing world A problem comes up when powering such a hybrid Davinci SOC (System on Chip) which includes both a GPP(General Purpose Processor) and a DSP (Digital Signal Processor). The OS that must run this must schedule tasks properly and have proper IPC (inter processor communication). For the DSP, the task scheduler is a light weight scheduler called the DSP/BIOS. For GPP we consider the world of Linux. Heterogenous Multicore – Power of GPP + GPU
  6. 6. CPU: ARM926EJ 270Mhz & TMS320C64x+™DSP Core at 600 MHz Memory APU : 16K I-Cache, 8K D-Cache, 32K TCM RAM, 8K Boot ROM Memory GPU : 32K L1 I-Cache, 32K L1 D-Cache, 128K L2 Cache, 64K Boot ROM JPEG Video Coprocessors – Video and Imaging Coprocessor ARCHITECTURE
  7. 7. Video Processing Sub System (VPSS) is comprised of two blocks: Front End (VPFE) & Back End (VPBE). VPFE Consists of CCD Controller (CCDC), Statistics Engine (H3A), Previewer, Resizer whereas VPBE consists of On-screen Display (OSD) and Video Encoding (VENC). When previewing the image the image goes from camera to VPFE, then to DDR, SCR(Switched Central Resource) and then back to output. In case of image processing the image from DDR ram goes to EDMA then to cache and then to processor where it is processing and then it goes back to the VPFE for display. VPSS : VPFE & VPBE
  8. 8. Software Layer
  9. 9. APIs It has xDAIS (eXpress DSP Algo Interoperability Std): An eXpressDSP-compliant algorithm is a module that implements the abstract interface IALG. The IALG API takes the memory management function away from the algorithm and places it in the hosting framework. Thus, an interaction occurs between the algorithm and the framework. This interaction allows the client application to allocate memory for the algorithm and share memory between algorithms. It also allows the memory to be moved around while an algorithm is operating xDM (eXpress DSP Digital Media): Set of APIs for multimedia compressing algo, Resource allocation, initialization and start APIs. Runtime process & control APIs. Stop algorithm and resource de-allocation APIs.
  10. 10. Embedded Linux Device
  11. 11. • 4 Elements - Tool chain; boot loader; kernel; user space • Tool Chain: • In software, a toolchain is the set of programming tools that are used to create a product (typically another computer program or system of programs). ● A tool chain consists of at least binutils: GNU assembler, linker, etc. • gcc: GNU C compiler ● C library (libc): the interface to the operating system ● gdb: debugger • Types: Native (runs for the target, target really fast) and Cross Compiler tool chain (can run anywhere on PC) • Compiler mostly gcc , different for vendor like arm-gcc or arm-angstom-linux-gcc etc . • select toolchain if it supports your needs ARM A8 or ARMv4 or higher, FP support, community support eg- Codesourcery g++, angstom, buildroot, Montavista & most imp it must have lib support which in form of .so or src • Goodies like IDE, Memory analyse tool, debugger etc Elements of a Linux System : Toolchain
  12. 12. • Bootloader is a piece of code that runs before any operating system is running. • Bootloader are used to boot other operating systems, usually each operating system has a set of bootloaders specific for it. • It initializes the hardware, Sets up SDRAM controller Map memory, Set processor mode and features • Load a kernel • Load images via Ethernet, serial, SD card • Erase and program flash memory • Nowadays a pre-bootloader is boots the system from flash and transfers control to secondary bootlloader in NAND as this is edited much more often. • Most popular is the U-Boot. PC used bootmbr, linux uses grub/lilo • Uboot has lot of options which can be set like booting from SD, NFS, NAND. It erases NAND, set ipaddress for NFS, can give address to load kernel Elements of Linux System : Bootloader
  13. 13. • Why MontaVista? http://www.mvista.com/ • Steps: • Make SW7 both up to boot from nand (left up right down to boot from SD Card) • Connect LAN, Audio, Composite Video, Power, UART and set it up • From minicom using settings bps : 115200, dbits – 8 connect to serial port • You would see EVM# promt and davinci interface on screen Starting the Device
  14. 14. • Install all the softwares given with the OEM CD 1: MontaVista Linux Pro System Tools CD 2: MontaVista Linux Pro Target File System CD 3: TI DVSDK Software • INSTALLING THE TARGET LINUX SOFTWARE: • SETTING UP THE NFS SERVER FILE SYSTEM: • BUILDING THE LINUX RTOS • REBUILDING THE DVEVM SOFTWARE FOR THE TARGET: • BOOTING THE NEW LINUX KERNEL: set env var Setting of Project
  15. 15. • We have to install these softwares on host Linux pc in this order • ❏ mvl_4_0_1_demo_sys_setuplinux.bin • ❏ mvl_4_0_1_demo_target_setuplinux.bin • ❏ mvl_4_0_1_demo_lsp_setuplinux_#_#_#_#.bin • ❏ dvsdk_setuplinux_#_#_#_#.bin • ❏ xdc_setuplinux_#_#_#_#.bin Installing all the Softwares
  16. 16. • Create a shared folder ~workdir/filesys • Copy this folder into it /opt/mv_pro_4.0.1/montavista/pro/devkit/arm/v5t_le/t arget/ • In /etc/exports file add the filesys folder /home/<useracct>/workdir/filesys *(rw,no_root_squash,no_all_squash,sync) • Restart nfs service and add the folder to sys path SETTING UP THE NFS SERVER FILE SYSTEM
  17. 17. • You need mvl toolchain present in lsp/ti-davinci • Go to ti-davinci/linux-2.6.10_mvl401 • make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm_v5t_le- davinci_dm355_evm_defconfig • To modify any args use make menuconfig and then again build it • BUILDING THE LINUX RTOS
  18. 18. • Now write your own program • Cross compile arm_v5t_le-gcc *.c –o <obj name> • ./<obj name> Make your own program
  19. 19. • A simple img zooming app • Steps: • arm_v5t_le-gcc img2zoom.c -o ../binaries/img2zoom • ./img2zoom <args> Practical – Simple Image Processing
