Blackfin Processor (Module U2)

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 subsystem computers.
