The MSC8156EVM is a low cost evaluation module for MSC8156 StarCore digital signal processor. This evaluation module supports MSC815x and MSC825x DSPs at 1GHz. The MSC815x and MSC825x family of DSPs are highly integrated DSP processors that contain one, two, four or six StarCore SC3850 cores. The family supports raw programmable DSP performance values ranging from 8 GMACs to 48 GMACs, with each DSP core running at 1GHz. These devices target high bandwidth, highly computational DSP applications such as 3GPP, TD-SCDMA, 3G-LTE and WiMAX base station applications. The MSC8156EVM is intended to serve as a platform for evaluating the capabilities of the MSC815X and MSC825x family of DSPs. Onboard resources and the associated CodeWarrior tools enable a variety of tasks, including, download and run code, set breakpoints, display memory and registers.
