Low Power 400MHz Blackfin+ Embedded Processor with 256KByte L2 SRAM & DDR2/LPDDR Interface
This device is a member of the ADSP-BF70x Blackfin Digital Signal Processor (DSP) product family. The new Blackfin+ processor core combines dual-MAC 16-bit, 32-bit MAC and 16-bit complex MAC in to a state-of-the-art signal processing engine. It also combines advantages of a clean, orthogonal RISC-like microprocessor instruction set, and single-instruction, multiple-data (SIMD) multimedia capabilities within a single instruction-set architecture. Further new enhancements to the Blackfin+ core add cache enhancements, branch prediction and other instruction set improvements—all while maintaining instruction set compatibility to previous Blackfin products.
The processor offers performance up to 400 MHz, as well as lowest power consumption at <100mW. Produced with a low-power and low-voltage design methodology, they provide world-class power management and performance.
By integrating a rich set of industry-leading system peripherals , large on-chip memory & a high speed external memory interface, this Blackfin processor is the platform of choice for next-generation applications that require RISC-like programmability, multimedia support, and leading-edge signal processing in one integrated package. These applications span a wide array of markets, from automotive systems to embedded industrial, instrumentation, video/image analysis, biometric and control applications.

This product is new and engineering validation may still be underway. Quantities may be limited and design specifications may change while we ready the product for release to production.
The ADSP-BF707 EZ-KIT Lite includes all hardware necessary to immediately being evaluation:
- The ADSP-BF707 EZ-Board™
- CE-approved power supply
- The ADZS-ICE-1000 emulator
- USB cable
The ADSP-BF707 EZ-Board can also be purchased separately, if an ICE-1000 or ICE-2000 emulator is already available to the customer.
The ADSP-BF707 Board Design Database contains all of the electronic information required for the design, layout, fabrication and assembly of the ADSP-BF707 EZ-Board, and is available to download from the Products Download area on this page.
The evaluation hardware is designed to be used in conjunction with the CrossCore® Embedded Studio (CCES) software development tools to test capabilities of the ADSP-BF70x Blackfin processors. The CCES development environment aids advanced application code development and debug, such as:
- Create, compile, assemble, and link application programs written in C++, C, and assembly
- Load, run, step, halt, and set breakpoints in application programs
- Read and write data and program memory
- Read and write core and peripheral registers
The ADSP-BF707 Board Support Package, available to download from this page, provides comprehensive software support for the ADSP-BF707 EZ-Board. Specifically, drivers, examples and code sketches are included for the following components:
- INA230 current-shunt and power monitor ADC driver
- INA3221 shunt and bus voltage monitor ADC driver
It also provides comprehensive examples which demonstrate the on-chip drivers and services.
New debug features added for the ICE-1000/ICE-2000:
- Program trace*
- System trace*
- Cross trigger channel control*
- Coresight Serial Wire Debug(SWD) support*
*Not available in all CCES versions
