Abstract

A new feature has been added which allows a user to add up to four additional address register sets (Rn/Mn/Nn) outside of the DSP5616 core micro- processor. Depending on the needs of the user's appli- cation outside of the core, the user can provide extra address register(s) as well as a peripheral address gener- ation unit (AGU) for performing address calculations and updates. The user only implements the capability needed by the application.
