The ADSP-21262 EZ-KIT Lite provides developers with a cost-effective method for initial evaluation of the ADSP-21262 SHARC Processor architecture for audio applications via a USB-based PC-hosted tool set. With this EZ-KIT Lite, users can learn more about ADI’s ADSP-21262 hardware and software development and quickly prototype applications.
The ADSP-21262 EZ-KIT Lite includes an ADSP-21262 processor desktop evaluation board along with an evaluation suite of the VisualDSP++ development and debugging environment with the C/C++ compiler, assembler, and linker. VisualDSP++ development and debugging software, along with the USB-based debugger interface, enables users to perform standard debugging functions (such as read and write memory, read and write registers, load and execute executables, set and clear breakpoints, and single-step assembly, C, and C++ source code).
The SHARC processors are based on a 32-bit super Harvard architecture that includes a unique memory architecture comprised of two large on-chip, dual-ported SRAM blocks coupled with a sophisticated IO processor, which gives SHARC the bandwidth for sustained high-speed computations. SHARC represents today’s de facto standard for floating- point DSP targeted for premium audio applications.
The evaluation system is designed to be used in conjunction with the VisualDSP++® development environment to test the capabilities of the ADSP-21262 SHARC processors. The VisualDSP++ development environment gives you the ability to perform advanced application code development and debug.
