On the Use of Compilers in DSP Laboratory Instruction

A modern DSP laboratory course should teach students how to quickly develop efficient applications using a mixture of C and assembly instructions. Since typical irregular DSP microprocessor architectures present some challenges to traditional optimizing compilers, the authors introduced a novel new interactive optimizing compiler, VISTA, in a DSP laboratory course to teach students about optimizing compilers and the trade-offs between code development in C and assembly. Students generally found VISTA educational and gained improved insight into effective DSP software development.
