The signal processing library contains various primitive DSP functions such as FIR, IIR and FFT. There are different libraries offered on a variety of Renesas CPU families, tool chain and OS configurations. These functions are fine-tuned and optimized for various architectures.
This product provides the basic signal processing library (SPL) functions necessary for building signal processing applications using High-performance Embedded Workshop (HEW) that uses "C/C++ Compiler Package for SuperH Family" (SHC compiler) or any other appropriate environments (Eg: QNX, Wince etc). (See the conceptual image shown below.)
Software Ver.: V.2.00.00
Application Note Ver.: V.1.00.00
Released: Apr 09, 2010
The signal processing library (SPL) is used in wafer positioning equipment, automobile application, Acoustic Echo Canceller (AEC), speech processing, Knock sensing, image processing and other applications. Speedy development as well as cost reduction of such devices can be achieved via a combination of Renesas microcontrollers, Renesas middleware, and Renesas development tools (compilers, debuggers, etc.).
SPL evaluation sample code is also available. For details, please refer to "Application Notes and Sample code".
SP Libraries are available in different configuration on different targets. They are as shown in the below block diagram.
- FFF - Input - Float, SPL Internal computation - Float, Output - Float
- IFI - Input - Integer, SPL Internal computation - Float, Output - Integer
- III - Input - Integer, SPL Internal computation - Integer, Output - Integer
- The target blocks with solid line are completed or under development phase. But the blocks with dotted lines are to be done (TBD) and will be added in future.
- SP library implements some of the most frequently used functions in typical Signal processing application such as speech processing, Knock sensing, image processing, etc...
- Sample software code to demonstrate the use of the library functions

Example of application field
- Knock sensing device controls and monitors the Rotation per minute (RPM) of the power train system in automobiles
- The IIR Biquad filter function present in the Signal Processing Library (SPL) is used for this application
- The feedback provided from Knock tool is used to control the speed Rotation per minute (RPM) of the power train system
The real time data from power train system is captured through knock sensor. The sensor captured data is provided as input to Signal processing library running on Renesas MCU. IIR Biquad function present inside the Signal Processing Library (SPL) is used for filtering in this particular application. Filtered data is provided to knock tool which analyses and provides a feedback to power train system to control the speed Rotation per minute (RPM).
