Low-Cost DSP Development Platforms Accelerate Time to Market for Image Sensing and Advanced Audio Applications

NORWOOD, MA -- Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) introduces two low-cost Blackfin processor-based development platforms targeting demanding ultra-low-power, real-time applications for image sensing and advanced audio. The Blackfin Low Power Imaging Platform (BLIP) leverages the ADSP-BF707 Blackfin processor as well as Analog Devices’ optimized software libraries for video occupancy sensing. The ADSP-BF706 EZ-KIT Mini® development platform targets power-sensitive embedded applications from portable audio to sound processing and effects. Both platforms include a license for ADI’s latest CrossCore® Embedded Studio development tools and all hardware for real-time debug and development.

The BLIP ADSP-BF707 is a small-form-factor development platform that offers end equipment manufacturers multiple functional profiles covering intelligent motion sensing, people counting, vehicle detection, and face detection use cases. The BLIP ADSP-BF707 platform includes an intuitive configuration GUI and enables real-time analysis of captured video, as well as video output/display through an on-board USB port. This makes it a highly valuable tool for product development and accelerating time to market. Additional key features include:

• Advanced occupancy detection with optimized imaging modules and demos
• ADSP-BF707 Blackfin processor with more than 1-Mbyte of internal SRAM and LPDDR support On-board CMOS image sensors from Omnivision and Aptina USB powered, complete with ICE-1000 and CrossCore Embedded Studio development tools
• ADSP-BF706 EZ-KIT Mini Development Platform

The ADSP-BF706 EZ-KIT Mini development platform offers designers a complete, small-form-factor, low-cost starter platform with on-board, high-quality audio I/O, large internal SRAM and multiple connectivity options including USB. The platform leverages ADI’s optimized development tools and includes DSP Concepts’ graphical-based Audio Weaver® software tool to provide a full-featured audio module library with efficient code generation and profiling. Additional key features include:

• Low-cost, ultra-low-power ADSP-BF706 Blackfin processor with an ADAU1761 audio codec
• Multiple audio project options including use of Audio Weaver® as well as development with the Arduino-compatible interface
• USB powered with on-board debug agent and CrossCore Embedded Studio development tools
