Product Details

The ADSP-BF707 evaluation hardware provides a low cost hardware solution for users to evaluate the Analog Devices ADSP-BF70x Blackfin processor family. 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. New enhancements to the Blackfin+ core add 32-bit MAC and 16-bit complex MAC support, cache enhancements, branch prediction and other instruction set improvements—all while maintaining instruction set compatibility to previous Blackfin products.

The ADSP-BF707 EZ-KIT Lite includes all hardware necessary to immediately being evaluation:


  • The ADS P- BF707 EZ-Board ™
  • CE-approved power supply
  • The ADZS-ICE-1000 emulator
  • USB cable

The ADSP-BF707 EZ-Board can also be purchased separately, if an ICE-1000 or ICE-2000 emulator is already available to the customer.

The ADSP-BF707 Board Design Database contains all of the electronic information required for the design, layout, fabrication and assembly of the ADSP-BF707 EZ-Board, and is available to download from the Products Download area on this page.
