Product Details

The ADSP-BF537 EZ-KIT Lite® provides developers with a cost-effective method for evaluation of the ADSP-BF537 Blackfin® Processor and its rich set of system peripherals, including the IEEE 802.3 10/100 Ethernet MAC and CAN 2.0B controller. A TCP/IP stack with integrated device driver and example code is provided in VisualDSP++ release 4.0. This evaluation system was designed with an emphasis on modularity and expandability. With this EZ-KIT Lite, users can learn more about Analog Devices’ ADSP-BF537 hardware and software development and quickly prototype applications.

The EZ-KIT Lite includes an ADSP-BF537 Processor desktop evaluation board along with an evaluation suite of the VisualDSP++® development and debugging environment with the C/C++ compiler, assembler, and linker. It also includes sample processor application programs, CE-approved power supply, a USB cable, both straight through and cross-over Ethernet cables, a 3.5mm stereo cable, and a pair of stereo headphones.
