We have been using the 218X parts (quite satisfactorily) but are considering tooling up for the Blackfin. This is a big step for us because it involves shelling out $4300 for an emulator and VisualDSP++ software. Hardware-wise the 218X family still services our needs and price-wise still competes with the Blackfin parts. Of course the distributors and reps say now is the time to move. An...

I received my Blackfin EZ-KIT Lite (on special offer last month) yesterday, and got it working this afternoon. I had problems getting WinME to start properly after installing the software, and eventually tried disabling the Norton virus software. This seemed to do the trick. I was thinking of creating a Yahoo group for users, but found that a Blackfin Interest Group already existed, so I jo...

Hi all, I wonder if anybody implemented a USB mass storage device functionality on a ADI blackfin architecture. The blackfin would be connected to a flash via the asynch memory interface, and have some USB hardware, say, a MAX3420. I guess the critical part is to manage the flash wear. Is there any free implementation or App-note around? Best regards, Andre

Hello, I've been hearing more about Labview's ability to develop applications for ADI's Blackfin and was wondering just how easy it is. If anyone has some experience using Labview with the Blackfin I would like to hear your opinions. I like the ability to run the Labview code on the DSP but was wondering about the interface, I assume that Labview has the ability to use ADI's emulators to inte...

There is necessity to port BlackFin VDSP code to TI AM3358. The later is Cortex A8 core with NEON SIMD coprocessor (???). BlackFin code uses DSP library; namely FFT functions provided with VDSP. The BTDI mark cited for Cortex A8 is about 30% higher then BlackFin at the same clock rate; whatever it means. Still is not clear to if AM3358 could handle the job; so my questions to people fa...
