Blackfin family offers new low cost 800 MMACs DSP solution for power-constrained applications
September 14, 2010 // Paul Buckley
Analog Devices, Inc., has introduced the Blackfin ADSP-BF592 with 800 MMACs/400 MHz of performance that features active power draw as low as 88 mW and a 9 mm x 9 mm 64-lead LFCSP package.
Target applications for the BF592 include portable medical products; audio devices; imaging products, such as CMOS-sensor-based 2D barcode scanners; and smart metering products in smart grid applications.
Claiming to represent the highest pure DSP performance for its price point - At 800 MMACs or 400-MHz clock speed, the Blackfin BF592 provides developers the ability to run more sophisticated algorithms for more system-level advantages.
The lowest power in ADIs Blackfin portfolio - The BF592 consumes 80 percent less power than comparable solutions. A low active power draw of 88 mW at 300 MHz and low standby power of less than 1 mW extends battery life.
Smaller footprint With a 9 mm x 9 mm footprint, the industrys smallest 800-MMAC device allows designers to pack high performance into space-constrained designs.
Optimized for multiple applications - With a peripheral set including two SPORTs, a PPI, two SPIs, four general-purpose counters and a factory-programmed instruction ROM block containing the VDK RTOS and C-runtime libraries, the BF592 is feature- and cost-optimized for compute-intensive applications that operate without the need for external memory or executable flash.
The BF592 is offered in commercial and industrial temperature grades and is automotive qualified.
An EZ-KIT Lite evaluation kit for the Blackfin BF592 is available for only 199 US Dollars, and includes an evaluation suite of ADIs VisualDSP++ development environment with the C/C++ compiler, assembler and linker. ADI also offers a 150 US Dollars Blackfin emulator (ADZS-ICE-100B), which provides designers with a comprehensive development platform that lowers the cost of entry to the Blackfin BF592. In addition, a complementary selection of ADIs power ICs, data converters, sensors, signal conditioning ICs are available for optimizing processor and overall signal-chain performance.All news
