Can I get g21k compiler for windows on eclipse platform. I want to compile DSP code in eclipse platform, What are the steps should I follow.
Thanks & regards,
The old GNU tools were not very good. In my early DSP days, I often heard, "ADI processors are great, but the tools are awful!". I would never want to go back to the old tools. Wrapping them inside Eclipse, isn't going to make them good.
This was the reason ADI went out and bought a few tools companies many years ago. These acquistions resulted in the VDSP & ICE products.
I don't think porting the assembler would be too hard. The GNU tools did not know about SIMD since they were written in 210xx time (actually before SHARC - 2102x). The linker was quite different than the current linker. You would need loader utilities and the I/O definitions have greatly expanded.
I think you would spend many, many hours to have a mediocre result. Sure you could get the C compiler, linker and assembler working, but you would still want ICE support.
If cost is the concern, I would suggest using an EZ KIT or any third party board that includes the ADI Debug Agent (like our dspblok family). These targets are supported by the free VDSP KIT license. The KIT version is limited in maximum program size but can be used for many projects. This is particularly true for 214xx targets.
Which of the 21k processors are you using? Do you have a requirement to use the old g21k compiler?
We are currently working towards a new IDE that is Eclipse-based. The latest cc21k will be available on Eclipse in a little over a year. I know that doesn't help much for today. It's just something to keep in mind.
hi Merril Weiner,
I am using sharc 21060 processor, I want to know is there any specific
procedure to perform performance, profiling and coverage (Dynamic Analysis)
for C code for sharc 21060 processor. Are there any switches or options in
thanks & regards,

Please refer to the Getting Started Guide in the Software Manuals. There are some examples on linear profiling and profiler guided optimization that can be adapted for your processor.
The SHARC C/C++ Compiler Manual may also be of interest. Especially the chapter titled "Achieving Optimal Performance from C/C++ Source Code".
