Product Details

The ADSP-BF531 / ADSP-BF532 / ADSP-BF533 processors are members of the Blackfin® family of products, incorporating the Analog Devices, Inc./Intel Micro Signal Architecture (MSA). Blackfin processors combine a dual-MAC state-of-the-art signal processing engine, the advantages of a clean, orthogonal RISC-like microprocessor instruction set, and single instruction, multiple data (SIMD) multimedia capabilities into a single instruction set architecture.

The ADSP-BF531 / ADSP-BF532 / ADSP-BF533 processors are completely code and pin-compatible, differing only with respect to their performance and on-chip memory. Specific performance and memory configurations are shown in Table 1.


  • Parallel peripheral interface PPI, supporting ITU-R 656 video data formats
  • 2 dual-channel, full duplex synchronous serial ports, supporting eight stereo I2S channels
  • 2 memory-to-memory DMAs
  • 8 peripheral DMAs
  • SPI-compatible port
  • Three 32-bit timer/counters with PWM support
  • Real-time clock and watchdog timer
  • 32-bit core timer
  • Up to 16 general-purpose I/O pins (GPIO)
  • UART with support for IrDA
  • Event handler
  • Debug/JTAG interface
  • On-chip PLL capable of frequency multiplication
