Development tools needed for ADI Blackfin?

Started by Robotics Guy January 5, 2009
I've been working with dsPIC microcontrollers for the past few months, but
may need something with a lot more power (like a Blackfin) to complete a
project.

What kind of tools are needed to program the Blackfin chips? Is there a
steep learning curve when first working with them?

Thanks!

Most of people use Visual DSP++ and JTAG emulator. BlackFin is quite complicated CPU and it has a lot of subtleties. Vladimir Vassilevsky DSP and Mixed Signal Design Consultant http://www.abvolt.com
