Blackfin BF50x Processors Break Price/Performance Barriers
Analog Devices unveiled the latest entries in its Blackfin family of processors for converged digital signal and control processing applications – the Blackfin BF50x series. Delivering up to 100% greater performance than competing, comparably priced processors with integrated analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and flash memory, BF50x series processors enable designers to achieve significant gains in signal conversion and computational precision, and apply advanced power control techniques to yield greater energy efficiency for industrial applications. Analog Devices also introduced a new low-cost ($199) EZ-KIT Lite® evaluation platform for the Blackfin BF50x series, providing a cost-effective entry point for processor evaluation. Blackfin BF50x processors are sampling to customers today.
/> Blackfin BF50x processors deliver up to 400MHz of performance at a price point where 150-200MHz clock speeds have been the norm, extending high-performance digital signal processing capabilities to a wider range of applications, including those previously serviced by high-end microcontrollers. This performance headroom enables designers to achieve greater system functionality and precision through the use of more sophisticated algorithms, and allows greater flexibility to optimize system interface and control capabilities. Designers are also enabled to utilize more advanced software tools and libraries for code generation, which helps shorten product development cycles and speed time to market – without compromising on processor cost.

Blackfin BF50x processors combine industry-standard interfaces with a high-performance signal processing core to ensure that applications can be developed quickly and cost-effectively, without the need for expensive external components. With optional integrated dual-SAR 12-bit ADI ADCs for more accurate data conversion and 4MB of on-board executable flash memory, Blackfin BF50x processors minimize off-chip components to lower overall system costs.
