shows the data flow for the real time implementation of the image processing algorithms. The algorithms will be implemented using the DSK6416. A MATLAB will run simultaneously in the PC. This script will read the source picture from a file in the PC, convert it to grayscale and send it to the DSK6416 through an RTDX channel. The processed picture will be sent from the DSK6416 through a second RTDX channel. The script will display three images:

  • The original color picture
  • The grayscale picture
  • The processed image
Real Time Implementation Environment

Ccs code generation

Use the model created in chapter 2.

  1. Add the "From RTDX" from the "RTDX Instrumentation" group of the "Embedded Target for the TI TMS320C6000 DSP" Blockset (Please refer to Figure 15). This block will be used receive data from the PC using a specified RTDX.
    The "From RTDX" Block
  2. Configure the block to receive data from a channel named "inputimage" as shown in Figure 16 If you are using the XDS560 or the Blackhawk USB560, you will need to enable High Speed RTDX in the "C61416DSK" block. . For the test we will send in an image over RTDX The "Output Dimensions" should contain the Frame size . The selection of ‘Blocking Mode’ will cause the code running on the DSP to wait until the RTDX transfer is complete before executing. This will give the MATLAB script full control over the execution.
    Configuring the Input Channel
  3. Add the "To RTDX" from the "RTDX Instrumentation" group of the "Embedded Target for the TI TMS320C6000 DSP" Blockset (Please refer to Figure 15). This block will be used to send the processed image to the PC using a specified RTDX.
    The "To RTDX" Block
    Configure the block to send data through a channel named "outputimage" as shown in Figure 9.
    Configuring the Output Channel
  4. The RTDX channel transfers data in the uint8 format. Therefore the output of the Edge Detection Block should be converted to this format. Add the "Convert Image" block from from the "Conversions" group of the Video and Image Processing Blockset, (Please refer to Figure 19). The block should be configured as shown in Figure 20.

    The Image Conversion Configuration
  5. Save your model (We used the name “stills_R_W.mdl”). Your model should look as shown in Figure 21.
    Reading and Displaying a Picture
  6. Now you can generate the code to your DSK by using Ctrl-B If you do so, the build will fail at compilation in CCS due to an ISRAM space issue. In this case, we can fix this by redefining the location for .far as SDRAM rather than ISRAM (the default) in the board properties box. Rebuild, and it should compile fine. . When the model builds, it creates an object in the MATLAB workspace which represents CCS, by default called CCS_Obj. This object will be used to interact with the application on the DSP from MATLAB.
  7. Build the project. Double-click the “Build Project” block.
  8. Load the project. Double-click the “Load Project” block.
  9. Run the target. Double-click the “Run” block. It should now be running, as displayed in CCS:

The matlab script

The purpose of the MATLAB code we want is to define an interface with the RTDX channels, to control the execution of the application on the processor, to send/retrieve data from the processor and to display it. An example script, “picture_script.m” will do this. The steps are also detailed below:

  1. With the application running, we can configure the RTDX channels in CCS. %% Configure RTDX channels% Identify RTDX channel names/modes chan_struct(1).name = 'inputimage';chan_struct(1).mode = 'w'; chan_struct(2).name = 'outputimage';chan_struct(2).mode = 'r'; % Identify RTDX host buffer parametersRTDX_config_struct.Buffsize = 32768; RTDX_config_struct.Nbuffers = 4;RTDX_config_struct.Mode = 'continuous'; % Set up RTDXr = setupRTDX(CCS_Obj, chan_struct, RTDX_config_struct); This This sets up a writeable RTDX channel to inputimage and a readable RTDX channel to outputimage. The names used are those in the blocks in the Simulink model.
  2. Once running, we enable the RTDX channels for use, and get some data to send to the DSP – in this case a grayscale image taken from a file. %% Enable RTDX r.enable('all');%% Import an image from file to send to the DSP Y = imread('TMW2.jpg');I = rgb2gray(Y);
  3. We then send this to the DSP: %% Send test frame to target via RTDX r.writemsg('inputimage', I); On receipt of this message, the DSP will process the data and send it back over the return RTDX channel, and then wait for further input.
  4. We can read the processed data back: %% Read processed test frame from DSP O = r.readmsg('outputimage', 'uint8', size(I));
  5. This script is saved under “Picture_script.m”
  6. Run the script and you will see:

    The original color picture

    The correspondent grayscale picture

    The received image (loopback)

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
