What's the most cheapest way to flash programs onto a DSP chip? Answered

I'm thinking of using the C5000 series, or possibly some other low power chip.

Would taking something like the eZDSP USB tool, removing the soldered chip and putting a socket in it's place be a good idea? Thanks!

The C5000 core chips I've seen use BGA packages. Do they even have a pinned variant ?

They all have an on-chip boot rom. If you hold MP/MC h low as you come out of reset, you can invoke multiple programming options.

As always, read the datasheet ! And the app notes.
