= About Distributed Codec Engine - RPMSG =
DCE is a library to remotely invoke the hw accellerated codecs on IVA-HD via a
syslink/rcm shim layer. This provides access to the
[http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/Category:Codec_Engine Codec Engine]
codec interface on the coprocessor (ducati/M3) from the host.
It is similar in purpose to remote codec engine, although at the time RCE was
not supported on OMAP4430, and DCE was a simple way to get the same result.
They should be roughly interchangeable from the user's perspective, with the
caveat that the DCE user should use <code>dce_alloc()</code> and
<code>dce_free()</code> to allocate/free the control structures that are
passed by pointer to CE APIs.
DCE was previously used by:

:Note: look in the README file for the latest version of this document, in
particular for the required versions of various dependent components and tools,
as these can change over time.
= How To Build =
These instructions are assuming you are cross-compiling on a linux machine for
IPU (M4) coprocessor side and natively building the linux/A9 host side
(although the instructions for cross-compiling the host side are roughly the
== Building IPU image on the Cortex-M4 Side ==
=== Install TMS470/ARM Compiler ===
Install Code Generation Tools (CGT) from Code Composer Studio which
provides the compiler tool:
To get the ARM compiler version tool, eg cgtarm-5.2.5, launch CCS,
Click "Help" - "Install New Software" - On "Work with"
Select "Code Generation Tools Updates ..."
NOTE: Unclick the box "show only the latest version of available software"
otherwise you will not be able to see the previous version.
Click on left arrow to expand "TI compiler updates" and
select "ARM Compiler Tools - 5.2.5".
Click "Next" follow by another "Next" - "Accept the license agreement" - "Finish".
The CCS will ask the user to restart the complete the installation.
If ccs6 is installed in /opt/ti/ccsv6, then the compiler will get installed in
* Any issue on CCS, please contact the TI e2e forum:
=== Install XDC tools ===
Download XDC tools from:
Install to ''/opt/ti/xdctools_<version>''
=== Install BIOS ===
Download BIOS (the RTOS) from:
Install to ''/opt/ti/bios_<version>''
=== Install Codec Engine ===
Download Codec Engine (CE) from:
The lite version is fine. Install to ''/opt/ti/codec_engine_<version>''
=== Install Framework Components ===
Download Framework Components (FC) from:
The lite version without fctools is fine. Install to ''/opt/ti/framework_components_<version>''
=== Install XDAIS ===
Download XDAIS from:
Untar to ''/opt/ti/xdais_<version>''
=== Setup Environment ===
The Project Home Directory (ipumm) host a Makefile.
the following environment variables need to be exported
export BIOSTOOLSROOT=<path where all tools are hosted>
export TIVIDEOTOOLSROOT=<path where FC and CE are installed>. This is optional.
If nothing is set, then it is assumed to be same as BIOSTOOLSROOT.
export IPCSRC=<path where IPC is installed>
export TMS470CGTOOLPATH=<path to CGTOOL ARM Compiler is installed>
Note: if you are using different version numbers, the paths would have to be
=== Build IPC ===
Download IPC from:
Install to ''$HOME/ipc_<version>''
Setup environment variables:
export IPC_INSTALL_DIR=<path where IPC is installed>
export DEPOT=<path where BIOS and XDC are installed>
export CGTOOLS_ARM=<path to CGTOOL ARM Compiler is installed>
make -ef ipc-bios.mak clean
make -ef ipc-bios.mak ti.targets.arm.elf.M4=$CGTOOLS_ARM
NOTE: If ''ipc'' is modified, then ''DCE'' needs to be rebuilt.
=== Build DCE ===
make omap5_smp_config : for OMAP5 platform in SMP BIOS mode
make vayu_smp_config : for DRA7XX platform in SMP BIOS mode
make info: shows all the make information.
make unconfig: clean the configuration setting.
make tools: shows all the needed tool versions.
make: builds the complete project.
With ''vayu_smp_config'', binary dra7xx-m4-ipu2.xem4 and dra7-ipu2-fw.xem4 will
be generated in current directory.
With ''omap5_smp_config'', binary omap5-m4-ipu.xem4 will be generated in current directory.
Copy dra7-ipu2-fw.xem4 to your filesystem.
Eg. GLSDK target filesystem: /lib/firmware/dra7-ipu2-fw.xem4
Copy dra7xx-m4-ipu2.xem4 to your filesystem at /stage/usr/lib/dra7xx-m4-ipu2.xem4
