The performance of data interaction between different memories has become a significant factor in the complex embedded systems with the huge increase of processing needs, especially between internal chip-on memory and external memory. This paper advances a constructive optimized scheme named global direct memory access (GDMA) for high-speed data interaction in the multi-core digital signal processor (DSP) systems. Furmore, we give important recommendations to actualize software programming

This scheme can enhance the peak speed of data interaction between local memories by 53.8% and 2.5% averagely for some situations using QDMA compared EDMA3. By establishing the bridge memory area, the speed from level-1 data memory to external memory is optimized by 15.3% maximumly. The multi-core DSP system can achieve the performance of high-speed data interaction at around 5GBps to meet user expectations.
