Blackfin Embedded Processor Board for Rapid Applications

H8606 is a low-cost versatile embedded computing module based on an Analog Devices ADSP-BF532 Blackfin digital signal processor running at 400MHz core clock. With 32Mb RAM and 8Mb Flash (16Mb Flash as option), this small low-cost module allows its integration into space and power demanding applications, yet being a powerful processor board that can even process real-time video signals.

It has been specifically designed to run Embedded Linux (uClinux) and incorporates a Xilinx Spartan-3E 100,000-gate* FPGA that can provide a wide variety of peripherals, making this module highly flexible and capable to fit in any specific application. The FPGA is loaded from the flash at boot time, and our engineering department or the user can develop, implement and add uClinux support for any specific peripheral to be implented on the on-board FPGA.

This board can be also tailored to specific user requirements, and it is available with different memory sizes an peripheral configurations.

A Development Kit is availble to enable the user to evaluate the board and to easily start development around it.

* 250,000-gate FPGA as option
