So how about all this programming the host microcontroller stuff, anyhow?

Alright, i'm not Bob Pease....


So I'm new to DSP and I've got the AD1940 EVK and written (drawn) a lovely program in Sigma Studio.


I want to get that code and stuff it into a microcontroller to boot the DSP in the target application.


What do I do? Am I right in thinking i'll need to include xxx_IC_1.h into my microcontroller source, and then write my own functions for all the #defines in SigmaStudioFW.h? Or is there more to it - more files to include maybe? Are there any functions or libraries i'm missing?


What about safeload writes? I can see SIGMA_WRITE_REGISTER_BLOCK() and SIGMA_WRITE_REGISTER() inside SigmaStudioFW.h. Do i need to write functions to write via the safeload registers for run-time parameter updates? Also, what is SIGMA_SET_REGSITER_FIELD ?


Any example C files greatly appreciated - target application controlled by PIC16/18 by the way.


Thanks in advance, sorry about all the questions - it's a lot to get one's head around for a newbie.
