which is best?

Started by yong July 17, 2003
I am starting to learn the DSP by using the Analog DSP. I am wondering
which one is "best" - I do not have target application now. just for
learning DSP. What I mean "best" is that the chip architecture is
current, stable, widely used, easy use(?), and the support for the
chip last longer - some chip might be outdated.

TigerSharc?
Sharc? - will be replaced by TigerSharc?
Blackfin?

As a fellow amateur, I found the ADSP-21065 to be a decent starting point. It is a floating point "SHARC" and it has nice C/C++ development tools and a cheap development board from ADI an also from other vendors. It seems to be positioned as a high-volume, low-end floating point chip for consumer audio. It is very active, so it is well supported and likely to stay around for a little while.
