Product Details

The ADSP-21479 EZ-KIT Lite® provides developers with a cost-effective method for initial evaluation of the ADSP-21478/21479 SHARCs® Processors via a USB-based, PC-hosted tool set. With this EZ-KIT Lite, users can learn more about the Analog Devices (ADI) ADSP-21479 hardware and software development, and quickly prototype a wide range of applications.

 

The EZ-KIT Lite includes an ADSP-21479 SHARC Processor desktop evaluation board along with an evaluation suite of the VisualDSP++® development and debugging environment, including the C/C++ compiler, assembler, and linker. The evaluation suite of VisualDSP++ is designed to be used with the EZ-KIT Lite only.

 

The EZ-KIT Lite also comes with a standalone debug agent board that is removable to allow a user to plug-in an external emulator.

Software Modules

The Digital Theatre Systems (DTS) Enhance Decoder library for the SHARC processor dynamically equalizes stereo audio to give improved brightness at all volume levels.
The Digital Theatre Systems (DTS) Surround Sensation Decoder library for the SHARC processor is an audio post-processing module that delivers an enhanced stereo experience from a multi-channel surround source.
The MPEG-4 HE-AAC v2 decoder library (with DAB and DRM support) for the SHARC processor implements a combination of Advanced Audio Coding (AAC), Spectral Band Replication (SBR) and Parametric Stereo (PS), standardized as the High-Efficiency v2 profile in MPEG-4 (HE AAC v2).
The Digital Theatre Systems (DTS) Neo:X Decoder library for the SHARC processor is an audio post-processing module that maximizes the perceived loudness for a stereo source without cause audible distortion.

Software Development Tools

SigmaStudio™ for SHARC is a programming, development, and tuning software environment that allows an audio designer to graphically design and program audio applications utilizing an extensive set of pre-built audio algorithms.
