From development tools to technical training, ADI helps engineers realize faster time to market and reduced system cost

Norwood, MA (03/22/2006) - Faster, better, more, at a lower system cost. For the embedded systems engineer, improving on your latest design is all in a day’s work. At the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) Silicon Valley, April 3-7, 2006 in San Jose, Analog Devices, Inc. (NYSE: ADI) will focus on helping developers make their challenging work easier with on-site Blackfin® Online Learning and Development (BOLD) tutorials, live product demonstrations, embedded systems development tools for Blackfin, and an extensive curriculum of technical sessions that run throughout the week-long event. Being highlighted as well is the company’s MicroConverter® family of precision analog microcontrollers which combine high-resolution converters, voltage references, and temperature sensors with industry standard microcontrollers and FLASH memory.

During exhibit hours from April 4-6 in Booth #416, ADI will present 10 different one-hour BOLD tutorials that cover techniques and tips for building better applications and getting to market faster:

  • An Introduction to VisualDSP++®
  • Blackfin Device Drivers
  • Blackfin System Optimization
  • Blackfin System Services
  • Robotics on the Blackfin Processor
  • Blackfin Rapid Prototyping of a Video Application
  • VoIP and Beyond with Blackfin
  • Green Hills® Software INTEGRITY® Wireless Security on Blackfin
  • Introduction to National Instruments LabVIEW™ Embedded Module for Blackfin Processors
  • High-Precision Analog Integration with Microcontrollers for Measurement and Monitoring Applications

    System designers and engineers visiting the ADI booth will also be able to see demonstrations of:

  • World-class development tools from Green Hills, National Instruments, uCLinux, and ADI that enable sophisticated applications requiring a convergence of capabilities including audio, video, security, network, and control processing

  • Blackfin Handy Board, a new state-of-the-art robotics and embedded controller board for academic teaching and research, developed jointly by Analog Devices and the University of Massachusetts Lowell

  • Analog Devices’ MicroConverter family of precision analog microcontrollers that combine precision analog functions, such as high-resolution ADCs and DACs, a voltage reference, and temperature sensor, with an industry-standard microcontroller and embedded flash memory.
