400 MHz High Performance Blackfin Processor

Manufactured by:

Product Details

Analog Devices initial product family, the ADSP-BF531, ADSP-BF532, and ADSP-BF533, offer all the ease of use and architectural attributes of the Blackfin processor. These three processors are all completely pin compatible - differing solely with respect to their performance and on-chip memory - thus reducing risk and offering the ability to scale up or down depending upon the end application needs. All three processors offer low power consumption with scaleable performance from low-cost to very high performance.

The ADSP-BF532 offers exceptional performance, large on-chip memories, and an array of application-tuned peripherals. Its highly integrated feature set combined with an aggressive price ($7.50 in quantities of 10Kpcs) make it particularly well suited for applications requiring both a high degree of functionality and low cost such as automotive telematics, information appliances, and wired/wireless communications systems.

    EMULATOR-ADSP Circuit Diagram

    Product Details

    The Analog Devices ICE-1000 and ICE-2000 emulators facilitate the creation, test, and debug of advanced applications on Analog Devices Processors and DSPs. Working in tandem with the CrossCore® Embedded Studio development environment, these emulators provide state-of-the-art support for all JTAG-compliant Analog Devices processors.

    New debug feature added for the ICE-1000/ICE-2000:

    • Coresight Serial Wire Debug (SWD) 


    EMULATOR-USB & HP USB ICE Circuit Diagram

    Product Details

    Analog Devices’ cost-effective Universal Serial Bus (USB)-based emulator and High performance (HP) Universal Serial Bus (USB)-based emulator each provide an easy, portable, non-intrusive, target-based debugging solution for Analog Devices JTAG processors and DSPs. These powerful USB-based emulators perform a wide range of emulation functions, including single-step and full speed execution with pre-defined breakpoints, and viewing and/or altering of register and memory contents. With the ability to automatically detect and support multiple I/O voltages, the USB and HP USB emulators enable users to communicate with all of the Analog Devices JTAG processors and DSPs using either a full speed USB 1.1 or high speed USB 2.0 port on the host PC. Applications and data can easily and rapidly be tested and transferred between the emulators and the separately available VisualDSP++ development and debugging environment(sold separately).

    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 real-time characteristics.
