Blackfin Dual-Core Processor up to 1GHz with Hardware Support for HD Video Analytics

Manufactured by:

Product Details

The ADSP-BF609 Blackfin processor is optimized for embedded vision and video analytics applications using a dual-core fixed-point DSP processor with a unique pipelined vision processor (PVP). The PVP is a set of functional blocks next to the Blackfin cores designed to accelerate image processing algorithms and reduce overall bandwidth requirements.

Other features include a high performance enhanced infrastructure, large on-chip memory and a feature rich peripheral set with expanded connectivity options. In addition to these the ADSP-BF609 processor contains features for safety-critical applications, including a CRC for memory protection, Parity and ECC protection in the internal memory blocks and a Fault Management Unit.

The ADSP-BF609 processor is ideal for many embedded vision applications such as automotive advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), machine vision and robotics for industrial manufacturing systems, security and surveillance system analytics and bar code scanners.

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) 


EVAL-BF609-EZBRD Circuit Diagram

Product Details

The ADSP-BF609 Evaluation Hardware provides a low cost hardware solution for users to evaluate the Analog Devices dual core Blackfin processor, 500 MHz/1000 MMACs each (2000 MMACs total) ADSP-BF60x Blackfin® processor family. This hardware comes in two configurations; ADSP-BF609 EZ-Board™ and ADSP-BF609 EZ-KIT Lite.®

ADSP-BF609 EZ-Board - The EZ-Board concept is the lowest cost entry point to evaluate the ADSP-BF60x processors family. This offering assumes that the customer already has an ICE -100B, USB-ICE and/or HPUSB-ICE JTAG Emulator(s). CrossCore® Embedded Studio software is also required.

ADSP-BF609 EZ-KIT Lite - The EZ-KIT Lite includes the complete ADSP-BF609 EZ-Board product plus SADA2 that eliminates the need to purchase a separate JTAG emulator for evaluation purposes.

Other emulators supported by the ADSP-BF60x Evaluation Hardware include the ICE -100B, USB-ICE and HPUSB-ICE
