Manufactured by:

For samples, please see the ADSP-BF706 product page.

Product Details

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 and large on-chip memory, 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.

ADSP-BF706 EZ-KIT MINI Circuit Diagram

Product Details

Analog Devices has developed a low cost, low power DSP evaluation platform targeting an array of real-time applications. The ADSP-BF706 EZ-KIT Mini® leverages the latest entry within the industry-leading, low power Blackfin® processor family as well as ADI’s optimized development tools and third party software deliverables—including innovative embedded audio design with Audio Weaver® from DSP Concepts. With on-board, high quality audio connectivity, multiple expansion options, and an integrated debug agent, the EZ-KIT Mini offers designers a complete small form factor, low cost starter platform for multiple applications.


The ADSP-BF706 Blackfin processor is a high performance DSP that delivers a class-leading 800 MMACS of processing power at less than 100 mW. With glueless connectivity options including USB and over 1 MB of internal SRAM, this reduces BOM cost and eliminates the need for external memory in many applications. Using the enhanced Blackfin+ core, the combination of performance, power efficiency, memory integration, sophisticated security, and great value, allows designers to incorporate advanced 16- and 32-bit processing into a wide range of new power sensitive use cases.


Target ADSP-BF70x applications include:
  • Portable audio, DJ equipment, and effects
  • Automotive audio and sensors
  • Portable communications
  • Military and aerospace
  • Portable healthcare
  • Intelligent lighting and occupancy detection*
  • Industrial imaging and biometrics*

Product Details

The ADSP-BF707 evaluation hardware provides a low cost hardware solution for users to evaluate the Analog Devices ADSP-BF70x Blackfin processor family. Blackfin processors combine a dual-MAC state-of-the-art signal processing engine, the advantages of a clean, orthogonal RISC-like microprocessor instruction set, and single-instruction, multiple-data (SIMD) multimedia capabilities into a single instruction-set architecture. New enhancements to the Blackfin+™ core add 32-bit MAC and 16-bit complex MAC support, cache enhancements, branch prediction and other instruction set improvements—all while maintaining instruction set compatibility to previous Blackfin products.

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.
