The DSP-8300 DSP Function Module is intended for embedded applications requiring signal processing in the audio frequency range.
Even though the DSP-8300 is only the size of a credit card, it is capable of up to 50 million operations per second.
The DSP-8300 was designed to serve a wide array of signal processing applications in a simple straightforward way. We created a product that is programmable and reprogrammable without the need for special hardware. The small size and flexible power requirements allow the DSP-8300 to be easily incorporated into an existing product or integrated as a subcomponent into a larger design.
With the addition of a daughterboard, the DSP-8300 makes an excellent DSP development platform. Add a housing or a rack mount panel and you can create custom instruments or test cells with minimal effort.
Since virtually every application of the DSP-8300 is unique, the DSP-8300 has an extensive set of library functions and tools to facilitate the software design process. This allows powerful signal processing modules to be built efficiently and economically for applications where a complete custom design would be expensive.
We recognize that the majority of our customers have their core skills in areas other than digital signal processing. Danville engineers are available to discuss your application’s specific needs and then develop the necessary firmware and interfacing information.
The DSP-8300 Developer's Kit
The DSP-8300 Developer's Kit is intended for DSP developers who wish to write their own applications for the DSP-8300 Function Module. It is used in conjunction with an Analog Devices assembler and linker, and a standard ASCII terminal program.
The DSP-8300 Developer's Kit requires an understanding of Analog Devices ADSP-218x assembly language. If you do not have a background in digital signal processing or Analog Devices assembly language, you may wish to familiarize yourself with some of the references on our 21xx Links & Resources page.
The DSP-8300 DSP Function Module was specifically designed to be incorporated into an existing product or system or integrated as a subcomponent into a larger design. Therefore by itself, the DSP-8300 is not really an evaluation or development board. Evaluation boards are generally designed with the intent of demonstrating features and benefits of a given processor without expecting the user to actually incorporate the evaluation board directly into a product.
Our solution to the evaluation board/production board problem is simple: we have added a daughterboard that has evaluation board features. These include an RS-232 interface, two pushbutton switches with companion LEDs to test digital I/O, a reset switch, a trim pot for variable settings, and convenient connectors for interfacing to the outside world.
After you develop your application, you can use the daughterboard to program additional DSP-8300 DSP Function Modules. The DSP-8300 Developer's Kit includes the following items:
