Core and memory operating power is 58 mW at 108 MHz. For programming ease, the chip provides 128 KB of SRAM and a full-speed USB 2.0 interface. Other features include three MCBSP ports, three timers, I2C bus, 6-channel DMA, 16-bit EMIF, and 36 GPIOs. For development support, the TMS320C55x Power Optimization DSP starter kit (DSK) provides power-planning tools that allow users to create trial configurations for determining power consumption for various memory and peripheral combinations. Available in a 12 mm x 12 mm microBGA package, price for the TMS320C5506 is $5.75 each/10,000. TEXAS INSTRUMENTS INC., Dallas, TX. (800) 477-8924.
