Product Details

The EV-21569-EZKIT is a bundle comprised of the EV-21569-SOM System-on-Module (SOM) board and the EV-SOMCRR-EZKIT carrier board. Together, they form the EZ-KIT® evaluation platform for the ADSP-21569 SHARC+ audio processors, enabling low-cost evaluation and rapid prototyping of the ADSP-2156× Family (ADSP-21562/21563/21565/21566/21567/21569). The EV-21569-SOM and EV-SOMCRR-EZKIT boards may also be purchased individually.

The EV-21569-EZKIT allows for fast prototyping of a wide range of applications, including immersive 3D sound and personal audio zones (PAZ), automotive active and road noise cancellation (ANC/RNC), voice-based user-interfaces and in-car communications (ICC), engine sound synthesis (ESS), and electric vehicle warning sound systems (EVWSS/AVAS). Additional applications include professional audio and soundbars / home AVRs (with 3D Object and Multi-Channel Audio) and enhanced conferencing systems. ADI also offers several software modules (e.g., AEC/NR, microphone beamforming, pitch shifting, harmonic generators, wave players etc.), as well as complete software solutions that can be licensed, where users can develop/evaluate their audio and voice processing applications. 3rd party surround sound solutions that can be licensed on ADI’s SHARC processor families are also available. Please visit ADI’s Software Solutions page for more information. 

The EV-21569-EZKIT evaluation system includes a kit license of the CrossCore® Embedded Studio (CCES) development tools, enabling developers to achieve faster time to market. The 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

System Requirements

Verify that your PC has these minimum requirements for the CCES installation:

  • 2 GHz single core processor; 3.3GHz dual core or better recommended
  • 4 GB RAM; 8GB or more recommended
  • 2 GB available disk space
  • One open USB port
  • CrossCore® Embedded Studio 2.9.3 or later

Note: Please see the CrossCore® Embedded Studio Release Notes for the latest information about System Requirements.
