2011-01-12 01:54:38     uclinux vs VDK

Message: 97364   


I need some help with an information. I am interested to do an application in ucLinux and I have the equivalent of the


application in VDSP++ with VDK implementation. What I do not know if is possible to have the same mechanism in ucLinux,


similarly to VDK and in the case I do not have it, if could be possible for me to implement.


I use for application BF537 STAMP for ucLinux and ADSP EZ KITLITE BF537 for VDK. I know the differences between the 2 stamps.




Thanks for any help!

sorry, but you didnt seem to post any actual question.  what exactly is it you want to do under Linux ?

I want to know if I can write code in ucLinux, having a VDK implementation of a project. The application is Pippelined audio driver and I would like to implement it on ucLinux.


What I don't know is if I have the necessary equivalents in ucLinux for VDK functions. Take for example : VDK::DeviceDescriptor dd = VDK::OpenDevice(kADC0, OPEN_STRING). And other VDK specific functions. Are all these implemented also in UcLinux? Or I have to realize them if I need to do something like that for my stamp.


I know I have the mechanisms for threads, for semaphores and I cand write similar code from VDK to ucLinux...but do I have all the tools from VDK in ucLinux or what I need?




I hope my questions are't funny for you, I am relatively new in this domain!

you can code whatever you want under Linux.  but there is no support for taking VDK and trying to "drop it" into Linux.  you'll need to rewrite your code.


i know nothing of VDK, so i have no idea what those functions do.


you can find many free books in the wiki to read:

what a fantastic page! Thank you so much for assembling this info

together in one place.


May I suggest that you change the title from "references and pointers" to

"Linux books and documentation"? I opened the page thinking that I will

learn how the counted references ("smart pointers") are implemented

as opposed to ordinary pointers (addresses). The web pointer suggested

this topic.
