Product Details

The ADSP-SC573 processor is a member of the SHARC® family of products. The ADSP-SC573 processor is based on the SHARC+ dual-core and the ARM® Cortex-A5TM core. The ADSP-SC573 SHARC processor is a member of the SIMD SHARC family of DSPs that feature Analog Devices Super Harvard Architecture. These 32-bit/40- bit/64-bit floating-point processors are optimized for high performance audio/floating-point applications with their large onchip SRAM, multiple internal buses to eliminate I/O bottlenecks, and innovative digital audio interfaces (DAI). New enhancements to the SHARC+ core add cache enhancements, branch prediction, and other instruction set improvements—all while maintaining instruction set compatibility to previous SHARC products. The EZ-KIT ships with all of the necessary hardware to get you up and running and start the evaluation immediately
