Migrating Blackfin VisualDSP / VDK Project to CrossCore

Hello everyone!


We developed a rather large project using VisualDSP for a BF548. To get more processing power, we are switching to a BF609, which is to be programmed using CrossCore Studio. Ok, so far so good. There is even a "project conversion wizard" that produces something that does no longer compile. It seems that the CrossCore Tools no longer come with VDK. Which is not that big a problem, since we mostly did try to avoid VDK usage.


So my questions are:

  • Am I correct to assume we have to replace the VDK code with µC/OS-III?
  • Is there some migration guide / cheat sheet / FAQ for this transition?
  • In particular: How to go about VDK Threads and Mutexes (Flags)? Is there a similar mechanism?


I'll of course continue reading the manuals, but I am assuming I am not the only one facing this transition so maybe some of you can give some helpful hints?


Many Thanks,
