The ADSP-SC589 processor is part of the new, high-performance, power-efficient, real-time series that delivers greater than 24 giga-floating-point operations per second using two enhanced SHARC+® cores and advanced DSP accelerators (FFT, FIR, IIR). The ADSP-SC58x and ADSP-2158x series consume less than 2 watts, making the new processor line-up more than 5x more power efficient than previous SHARC products. This advantage provides industry leading digital signal processing performance for applications where thermal management sets the limit for power consumption, or where the higher costs and lower reliability of fans cannot be tolerated. Applications include automotive, consumer and professional audio, multi-axis motor control, and energy distribution systems.
The ADSP-SC58x products complement the SHARC+ cores and DSP accelerators with the addition of an ARM® Cortex-A5 processor, with FPU and Neon® DSP extensions to handle additional real-time processing tasks and manage peripherals used to interface to time-critical data in audio, industrial closed-loop control, and industrial sensing applications. These interfaces includes Gigabit Ethernet, USB High-Speed, mobile storage (including SD/SDIO), PCI Express and a rich variety of other connectivity options for a flexible and simplified system design.
The ADSP-2158x family is designed for applications where a DSP co-processor is exclusively needed and includes two SHARC+ cores and a peripheral set matched to a DSP core.
The new, code-compatible, enhanced SHARC+ core features clock-rate and power-efficiency improvements and adds instruction/data cache options, native double-precision floating-point support, and a number of other new instructions. Designed for low-power and using a low-leakage CMOS process, the ADSP-SC58x/2158x families deliver 500 MHz with 105°C environments in mind and provide a roadmap to future implementations at higher performance. More than 1.8 Mbytes of fast on-chip SRAM and up to two DDR3/2/LP interfaces aid efficient real-time performance while the memory subsystem includes major enhancements with advanced DMA engines for simultaneous data transfer.
With software IP protection a growing industry security concern, ARM® TrustZone® security and an onboard crypto hardware accelerators are included. For applications where reliability is a critical requirement, memory parity and error-correction hardware provide higher data integrity. The overall integration and low-power features offered by the new ADSP-SC58x and ADSP-2158x series deliver significant BOM and board area savings and provide lower design complexity and reduced time to market for today’s complex applications.
The ADSP-SC58x/2158x is supported by ADI’s award winning Crosscore® Embedded Studio development tool suite, providing design engineers with interactive, real-time development tools that help optimize their design and speed time to market.
Additionally, ADI and Micrium have collaborated to offer µC/OS-II® & µC/OS-III® real-time kernels on both SHARC+ and ARM Cortex-A5 cores, as well as Micrium’s USB Host, USB Device and file system stacks running on the ARM Cortex-A5.
Analog Devices also provides the Linux Add-In for CrossCore Embedded Studio, a custom Linux board support package based on Buildroot, enabling customers interested in taking advantage of the communication stacks and application packages available for embedded Linux, running on the ARM Cortex-A5 core. Target Linux availability is September 2015 and to request, please complete the software request form and specify “Linux SC58x Support" in the Additional Comments field.

Evaluation Kits (5)
The ADSP-SC589 EZ-KIT Lite and EZ-Board® are evaluation systems for the ADSP-SC58x family of SHARC® processors. The ADSP-SC589 processor is based on the SHARC+™ core dual processor with the arm® Cortex-A5™ processor core and is designed for a wide array of markets, from automotive and pro-audio to industrial-based applications that require high floating-point performance. The EZ-Board is shipped with all of the necessary hardware—you can start the evaluation immediately. The package contains the standalone evaluation board, CE-approved power supply, and USB cable. The EZ-KIT Lite® version ships with an EZ-Kit license for CrossCore® Embedded Studio (CCES) and the ICE-1000 emulator, while the EZ-Board version requires the customer to provide an ICE-1000 or ICE-2000 emulator. The EZ-Kit license gives the user a full, subscription based license to use CCES with only the ADSP-SC589 EZ-KIT Lite evaluation board.
Expansion Interface III connectors are provided for interfacing with additional extender boards to provide LCD, camera, video, and audio. Traditional mechanical switches for changing the board's factory setup have been removed in favor of I2C controlled software switches. The only remaining mechanical switches are the boot mode switch, JTAG configuration switches, and push buttons.
The evaluation board is designed to be used in conjunction with the CrossCore® Embedded Studio (CCES) development tools to test capabilities of the ADSP-SC58x processors. 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

HDMI Audio EI3 EZ-Extender
The HDMI Audio EI3 EZ-Extender is a separately sold daughter board that plugs onto the expansion interface III of the EZ-Board evaluation platform. The daughter board aids the design and prototyping phases of HDMI HD audio decode/encode applications. The board extends the capabilities of the evaluation system by providing a connection to three analog audio codecs along with an HDMI transmitter/receiver.
The HDMI Audio EI3 EZ-Extender’s analog audio interface is comprised of three Analog Devices AD1939 multichannel audio codecs. The AD1939 is a high performance, single-chip codec featuring four analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) for audio input and eight digital-to-analog converters (DACs) for audio output. This translates to twelve channels of audio in and twenty four channels of audio out. The codec/extender can input and output data at a sample rate of up to 192 kHz on all channels.
This HDMI Audio EI3 EZ-Extender connects with the Expansion Interface 3 (EI3) which gives the user more available signals on the interface connectors and a reduction in size over the previous EI2 specification. Software examples are provided to demonstrate the functionality of the devices on the Extender Board.
