Houston, Texas Troy Wireless and Stonestreet One are bringing enhanced Bluetooth support to Texas Instruments' TMS320C54x family of digital signal processors (DSPs). In a set of announcements today, both companies are announcing upper-layer stacks for the C54x DSPs, which are employed in a host of mobile communication devices.
Troy's stack, dubbed WindStack, is Bluetooth version 1.1 qualified. According to Try, this software package enables complete stack implementation, comes equipped with a host of profiles, and is supplied with a set of application programming interfaces (APIs). Additionally, the stack has been developed using the TMS320 algorithm standard, allowing it to more easily work with other algorithms developed for the C54x platform.
Stonestreet One's offering, called Bluetopia, is specifically designed and optimized for TI's eXpressDSP reference framework 3. This stack is also compliant with the version 1.1 specification and is supplied with a host of Bluetooth profiles.
Both stacks allow TI DSP user to perform key Bluetooth functions, such as file synchronization, wireless serial port, and LAN access. These stacks also work with TI's Bluetooth chipsets.
