Features and Benefits
The Blackfin® Processor family has been expanded to address the ever-increasing need for more connection possibilities. This connectivity is coupled with the high performance 16-/32-bit Blackfin embedded processor core, the flexible cache architecture, the enhanced DMA subsystem, and the Dynamic Power Management (DPM) functionality. System designers can take advantage of the combined control and signal processing capabilities of the processor core through code compatibility of these new family members with existing Blackfin offerings.
The ADSP-BF539F Processors are designed and targeted for use as the System Control Processor in control and signal processing rich applications such as Automotive Navigation Systems, Audio Head Units and Audio Amplifiers. The ADSP-BF539F is equivalent in functionality to the ADSP-BF539 processor with the exception of the addition of onboard FLASH memory.
Blackfin Processors add FLASH memory and MOST Network Connectivity
A new addition to the Blackfin Processor family is the inclusion of integrated FLASH memory alongside the processor. There are two choices available in the ADSP-BF539F family, one with 4 Mbit of onboard FLASH memory and one with 8 Mbit of onboard FLASH memory. Both offer large code space for complex embedded systems and fast (70 ns) access time to the Blackfin core.
FLASH Memory Data Sheets:
4 Megabit (512 K x 8-Bit/256 K x 16-Bit) FLASH memory
8 Megabit (1 M x 8-Bit/512 K x 16-Bit) FLASH memory
This is in addition to the complementary Blackfin processor memory system that offers a powerful and flexible cache architecture that can dynamically balance between the hard real-time tasks desired in SRAM and soft real-time control tasks and an Operating System (OS) requiring cache functionality.
These powerful new processors also integrate an MXVR Transceiver for transmitting and receiving audio, video and control data over a MOST automotive multimedia network. Dynamic Power Management additionally lowers power consumption and minimizes power dissipation in enclosed applications.
Designed as an Integrated System
In addition to the embedded connectivity of CAN 2.0B, the ADSP-BF539F processors include a variety of general purpose functions designed to minimize external IC count and offer broad control and communication. Peripherals include three SPI®-compatible ports, three UARTs, four SPORT ports, three multifunction timers, 38 general-purpose I/Os, dual Two-Wire Interface for I2C operation, a real-time clock, a watchdog timer, an event controller, and a JTAG/debug interface. The flexible Parallel Peripheral Interface (PPI) offers a direct connection to a variety of video encoders/ decoders, display drivers, image sensors, and general-purpose converters.

EMULATOR-USB & HP USB ICE
Analog Devices’ cost-effective Universal Serial Bus (USB)-based emulator and High performance (HP) Universal Serial Bus (USB)-based emulator each provide an easy, portable, non-intrusive, target-based debugging solution for Analog Devices JTAG processors and DSPs. These powerful USB-based emulators perform a wide range of emulation functions, including single-step and full speed execution with pre-defined breakpoints, and viewing and/or altering of register and memory contents. With the ability to automatically detect and support multiple I/O voltages, the USB and HP USB emulators enable users to communicate with all of the Analog Devices JTAG processors and DSPs using either a full speed USB 1.1 or high speed USB 2.0 port on the host PC. Applications and data can easily and rapidly be tested and transferred between the emulators and the separately available VisualDSP++ development and debugging environment(sold separately).
The plug-and-play architecture of USB allows the emulators to be automatically detected and configured by the host operating system. It can also be connected to and disconnected from the host without opening the PC or turning off the power to the PC. A 3-meter cable is included to connect the emulators to the host PC, thus providing abundant accessibility to hard to reach targets.
The HP USB-based emulator also supports the Background
Telemetry Channel (BTC), a non-intrusive method
for exchanging data between the host and target
application without affecting the target system's
