This utility contains Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) for TMS320x280x and TMS320x280xx DSP devices. This HAL facilitates peripheral configuration using "C". It also contains a simple test program for each peripheral to exemplify the usage of HAL to control & configure the on-chip peripheral. The C280x/C2801x C/C++ peripheral header files and example projects facilitate writing in C/C++ Code for the Texas Instruments TMS320x280x DSPs. The code can be used as a learning tool or as the basis for a development platform depending on the current needs of the user. These examples demonstrate the steps required to initialize the device and utilize the on-chip peripherals.
