Low Power Blackfin Processor with Advanced Peripherals and Embedded Stereo Audio CODEC
The ADSP-BF525C offers up to 600 MHz performance and up to 1200 MMACs. This processor core is supported by an advanced DMA controller supporting one-and two-dimensional DMA transfers between on-chip memory, off-chip memory, and system peripherals. The combination of the processor core speed and the DMA controller allows for efficient processing of audio, voice, video, and image data.
The ADSP-BF525C provides peripheral flexibility to complement its high performance processing. The HS USB OTG host direct memory access (HDMA) and NAND flash controller are just a few of the peripheral options on the ADSP-BF525C family—not to mention the availability of up to 48 GPIO ports.
For applications where product differentiation represents a challenge for securing market leadership, the ADSP-BF525C enables developers to provide features and benefits to augment their product offerings without compromising cost or power. The scalability of the ADSP-BF525C makes it an ideal candidate for Premium Audio Players where differentiation of features can be realized without sacrificing system cost. Where the diversity of Multimedia applications and content security are key attributes the ADSP-BF525C provides processing flexibility and Lockbox™ Secure Technology to enable users to develop freely and without bounds.
IP protection has become a necessary part of today’s embedded computing applications. The ADSP-BF525C provides a security scheme which balances flexibility and upgradeability with performance through the inclusion of a firmware-based solution including OTP (One Time Programmable) memory to enable users to implement private keys for secure access to program code.
For space constrained audio applications the ADSP-BF525C supports an embedded low power stereo audio CODEC.

CROSSCORE® Tools Support
The plug-and-play architecture of USB allows the emulators to be automatically detected and configured by the host operating system. It can also be connected to and disconnected from the host without opening the PC or turning off the power to the PC. A 3-meter cable is included to connect the emulators to the host PC, thus providing abundant accessibility to hard to reach targets.
The HP USB-based emulator also supports the Background
Telemetry Channel (BTC), a non-intrusive method
for exchanging data between the host and target
application without affecting the target system's
