Blackfin Processor (Module U2)


Blackfin® Processor (Module U2) The BF533, from the ADI Blackfin® family, for overall system processing. This is an extension of the multifunction board architecture which uses Blackfin® processors to implement the motherboard, module and signal processing functions. The Blackfin® is an ideal choice for this use due to its wide application and availability of third party software and design services.

Based on the Analog Devices Blackfin® BF-533 DSP processor, users can confidently take advantage of the powerful Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) Visual DSP++ Development Environment. The 64D2 fitted with the U2 Processor allows users to develop application code in support of their I/O and communication intensive application without the need for a Single Board Computer. The U2 coupled with NAI’s extensive I/O function capabilities and software library support offers developers a real time embedded system environment. Additionally, this low power solution can interface directly to the I/O, perform embedded algorithms and communicate directly to system and sub-system computers.
