Blackfin digital signal processor (DSP) from Analog Devices aims at power-constrained applications
NORWOOD, Mass., 14 Sept. 2010. Analog Devices Inc. in Norwood, Mass., is introducing the Blackfin ADSP-BF592 digital signal processor (DSP) with 800 MMACs/400MHz of performance. With active power draw as low as 88 milliwatts and a 9-by-9-millimeter 64-lead LFCSP package, the Blackfin BF592 is for power-constrained and small form-factor industrial, medical, video, audio, and general-purpose applications.
The DSP chip from Analog Devices (NYSE: ADI) has a peripheral set including two SPORT's, a PPI, two SPI's, four general-purpose counters, and a factory-programmed instruction ROM block containing the VDK RTOS and C-runtime libraries, the BF592 is have- and cost-optimized for compute-intensive applications that operate without the need for external memory or executable flash.
The BF592 comes in commercial and industrial temperature grades and is automotive qualified. The cost is $3 each based on 10,000-unit quantities. For more information contact Analog Devices online at www.analog.com.
