dspblok™ DSP & FPGA Modules
Danville's dspblok DSP Engines are largely pin compatible. This allows your application to take advantages of new processor technology and extended features in the future. We suggest that you consider our ADSP-214xx based boards for new designs. You may also want to check out our dspblok 527. This DSP module is based on ADI's ADSP-BF527 Blackfin DSP. In addition to its signal processing capability, its great for communications. It includes high speed USB-On-the-Go and Ethernet.
Most dspblok production modules have a companion developer's version, which includes an Analog Devices' EZ-KIT style debugger. These boards are physically larger (60mm x 115mm) to accommodate the debugger but have a matching footprint to our production modules (60mm x 60mm). Once you have developed and debugged your software, you can replace the debugger module (ICE version) with a lower cost, smaller production module.
The dspblok "with ICE" versions include the free Visual DSP++ KIT license and are supported by the FULL version. Depending on the complexity of your application, you may be able to create and support your application without ever needing to purchase additional development tools.
