Product Details

The ADSP-BF527 EZ-KIT Lite® provides developers with a cost-effective method for initial evaluation of the ADSP-BF527 Blackfin® Processors via a USB-based, PC-hosted tool set. With this EZ-KIT Lite, users can learn more about the Analog Devices (ADI) ADSP-BF527 hardware and software development, and quickly prototype a wide range of applications.

The EZ-KIT Lite includes an ADSP-BF527 Blackfin Processor desktop evaluation board along with an evaluation suite of the VisualDSP++® development and debugging environment, including the C/C++ compiler, assembler, and linker. The evaluation suite of VisualDSP++ is designed to be used with the EZ-KIT Lite only.

The EZ-KIT Lite ships with with a landscape, Low Power QVGA Touch Screen LCD panel, a set of Stereo Headphones and all of the necessary supplemental cables (USB, Ethernet, etc.).

Software Module

The Dolby Pro Logic IIx library for the Blackfin processor is a proprietary algorithm from Dolby Laboratories intended for extending stereo or 5.1-channel audio to 6.1 or 7.1 channels.
The GIF (graphics interchange format) Decoder library for the Blackfin processor supports handling of data in GIF file format with data movement support, configurable to use either cache mode or MDMA.
The Bitmap Image File (BMP) Decoder library for the Blackfin processor implements data handling for BMP data as uncompressed data format or an RLE encoder data.
The Audio Mixer library for the Blackfin processor can mix N number of input channels to M output channels and can be used directly for VoIP applications.
The JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) Encoder library for the Blackfin processor is fully compliant with ISO/IEC 10918-1:1993 (ITU-T T.81) and can be used to build a Motion-JPEG video system, for example using the AVI file format.
The Vision Analytics Toolbox (VAT) library for the Blackfin processor provides a set of software modules that make use of primitives from the video content analysis toolbox (VCAT) and provides solutions to relatively complex problems like face detection, edge detection, shape detection, classification, and others.
The Video Content Analysis Toolbox (VCAT) library for the Blackfin processor implements a set of video analytics tools to be used in video surveillance for detection of events, such as intrusion detection, left/removed object detection.
Adaptive Jitter Buffer
The ADI MPEG-4 SP/ASP Decoder library for the Blackfin processor implements an MPEG-4 video decoder, which is compliant with the INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO/IEC14496-2, Information technology — Coding of audio-visual objects — Part 2: Visual, Third edition 2004-06-01.
The Dual Tone Multi Frequency (DTMF) Decoder library for the Blackfin processor implements a Dual Tone Multi Frequency (DTMF) Decoder, which is compliant with the Q.24 ITU specification.

The Digital Theatre Systems (DTS) Neo:6 Decoder library for the Blackfin processor implements a DTS Neo:6 decoder, which has DTS Neo:6 compliance/certification.
