Can anyone tell me if the g21k compiler (http://code.google.com/p/g21k/downloads/list) work with the ADSP-21369?
I'm researching building a dsp board targeted towards hobbyists (it would be an arduino extension), for building synthesizers, or video processors or whatever. Unfortunately the main obstacle I've been running into is the cost of their software development tools, $3k is out of reach for hobbyists. This looks like it may be a deciding factor in our chip selection.
I'd really like to use a SHARC chip if I can get redistributable or at least freely available build tools. Otherwise I'll have to go with either the Freescale DSP56k which has passable build tools, or an xmos chip, which has excellent build tools but is not quite what we're looking for.
