Low Power 400MHz Blackfin+ Embedded Processor with 1MByte L2 SRAM
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.

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.
