Analog Devices developed new processor-based platforms for developers: the BLIP ADSP-BF707 and ADSP-BF706.

The Blackfin Low Power Imaging Platform (BLIP) utilises the ADSP-BF707 Blackfin processor and Analog Devices' software libraries for video occupancy sensing. The ADSP-BF706 EZ-KIT Mini development platform targets embedded applications for portable audio, sound processing and effects. Both Blackfin platforms include a licence for ADI's latest CrossCore Embedded Studio development tools and hardware.

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.

New Blackfin platforms

Additional key features include advanced occupancy detection with optimised imaging modules and demos; ADSP-BF707 Blackfin processor with more than 1MB of internal SRAM and LPDDR support; on-board CMOS image sensors from Omnivision and Aptina; and USB powered, complete with ICE-1000 and CrossCore Embedded Studio development tools.

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 optimised 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; and USB powered with on-board debug agent and CrossCore Embedded Studio development tools.

The BLIP BF707 will be available April 2015 at $199 each while the ADSP-BF706-EZ-KIT Mini is already for orders at $69.
