Like looking in a mirror

In system software development is eased using standard interfaces. By Rodger H Hosking.

Communication between the host and target in a development system is one of the most important issues and difficult tasks for a system designer. Making it even more of a challenge is the varied combinations of host platforms, dsp boards and development tools that are out in the market. To help solve these issues a complete host to target link solution must support all possible combinations of platforms, tools and boards while accommodating the special needs of embedded dsp systems.
This can be done by creating an appropriate host to target communication protocol that host tools and dsp applications can access through a well defined, portable application programming interface (api). This greatly simplifies application development, provides increased tool interoperability, and allows tool vendors and end users to port between host platforms, communication links, or dsp boards.
